Carnival Legend Wraps Up Another Australia Season

Carnival Legend

The Carnival Legend is wrapping up a third successful seasonal Australia operation, said the cruise line.

The 88,500-ton ship is currently on her final sailing of the season – a five-night Tasmania cruise – with the cruise line taking advantage of Hobart to show off the ship to a group of Tasmanian travel agents.

The ship now set sail on a 19-night cruise to Hawaii, ahead of a season of Alaska cruises.

During the 2016-2017 season, Carnival Legend carried more than 50,000 guests on a variety of itineraries ranging from 3-5 night short cruises in local waters to longer 7-12 night cruises around the South Pacific, as well as the ship’s first visit to New Zealand’s South Island during a 10-night voyage in January.

The 2,680-guest ship will return for her fourth extended Australian summer season on October 10, 2017, which will see her spend more time cruising around the Apple Isle when she is based out of Melbourne for the first time.

In a record Victorian deployment for Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Legend will sail on six roundtrip cruises from Melbourne during February and March 2018, including voyages to New Zealand, the South Pacific and Tasmania.

The ship will again be homeported in Melbourne in November 2018.
