Cruise Description

12 Night Cruise sailing from Venice to Barcelona aboard Carnival Legend.

Legends are made, not born... and over time, this ship has become even more deserving of its nameplate. Let’s discover some of the secrets of Carnival Legend.

If you’re out to find new legends, flip directly to the RedFrog Pub, featuring not only a mythical mascot, but actual drinks — plus Caribbean atmosphere by the gallon. Your heroic journey down the Green Thunder waterslide is a saga you’ll recount for ages. Bonsai Sushi proves that you needn’t teach a man to fish for him to enjoy delicacies from the sea. And once you’ve had a look — not to mention a taste — at the certifiable cocktail magic of Alchemy Bar, you still may not believe your eyes.

This ship, which pays tribute to some of the most enduring legends throughout the ages, still features classic Carnival Legend favorites. Take a dip in the Camelot and Avalon pools, wish for fortune at Club Merlin Casino, and taste something savory at Truffles Restaurant. There’s more than one way to dine at Lido Deck’s Unicorn Café, including handmade faves at Guy’s Burger Joint and fresh taco-burrito goodness at BlueIguana Cantina. And of course there’s The Golden Fleece Steakhouse, where the great multi-course meal is no myth.

Music lovers who go for the classics will love Billie’s Piano Bar. Anyone with a move in their groove will find Lip Sync Battle: Carnival the place to let it out. Kids will tell and retell their tale of their favorite vacation, spent hanging out and meeting new friends at one of three supervised youth areas. And adults can get lost in a good book, or just one another’s company, at the legendarily kid-free Serenity Adult-Only Area... and then dance the night away at Medusa’s Lair Dance Club. Activities on Carnival Legend? Nothing short of legendary.

For a cruise vacation that’s sure to go down in your history books, turn to Carnival Legend.

Highlights of this cruise:

Glide by gondola through the milky canals of La Serenissima on your Carnival cruise to Venice, Italy. You’ll soon fall under the city’s spell, while watching slow boats slips down narrow waterways lined with palaces and following quiet alleyways that miraculously open up on bustling piazzas of alfresco cafés. Venice cruises to the glimmering Queen of the Adriatic are sure to bring out the romantic in anyone.

This may be understating things a little … but wow, does Croatia know how to build a good looking city! In the case of Rijeka, the coastal Adriatic Sea location and mountainous terrain—which starts just a bit inland—has definitely provided this city with some good bones. Its residents took things to the next level by adding Mediterranean red-tile roof architecture, pedestrian-friendly city center Korzo, and landmarks like the City Tower clock and the round St. Vitus Cathedral. The old town area boasts Roman walls, medieval churches, and the hilltop Trsat Castle, where all the best views happen. You don’t have to spend all your time in town, though — Rijeka has some incredible neighbors, like Pula with its 1st-Century Roman amphitheater, Hum – known as the world’s smallest town, and the huge Island of Krk … which features way more fun than it does vowels.

Have you cruised a fjord lately? Well, fjord lovers take note: Kotor rests at the edge of the largest in the south of Europe. This body of water is a thing of beauty, but there’s more to Kotor — the city also sits at the base of an amazing mountain that makes for some dramatic overhead views. 360 degrees of beauty! How welcoming to visitors can a place be when it’s ringed by sturdy Venetian fortress walls… ones built all the way up the mountain to keep invaders out, no less? You’d be surprised! The old-town walled section of Kotor today throws its doors open to visitors from around the world who come to seek signs of its history among the local palaces, cathedrals and museums.

Malta’s the big sister, the largest island in a seven-strong archipelago just a stone’s throw from Europe… and not far at all from Africa. The island’s history began with the megalithic stone temples at Gozo, which may just be the oldest free-standing structures on Earth. Valletta is Malta’s capital, and its bustling streets are lined with superb Baroque buildings, palaces, gardens and churches. The city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and its nickname is Superbissima (“most proud”). Malta has two official languages: Maltese, the national language, and English. Malta was admitted to the European Union in 2004, and four years later became part of the Eurozone.

Palermo is a cultural feast, a fascinating combination of East and West that is unlike any other European city on the Mediterranean. A simple stroll can serve to illustrate Palermo's rich heritage. The Quattro Canti is the great square at the heart of the city. A short walk past its 17th-century palazzos and fountains brings the traveler to the Palazzo dei Normanni, where elaborate tile work and mosaics showcase Islamic and Byzantine influences. The city abounds in such colorful sights, from the neo-classical Teatro Massimo — one of the largest opera houses in Europe — to the catacombs beneath the Capuchin convent, where thousands of mummified bodies lie in eternal rest.

Not just one of Italy’s oldest cities, but among the world’s oldest, Naples and its surrounding area has over thousands of years contributed innovations to not only the culinary and visual arts, but the development of everything from language to music. Today, you'll feel the friendly spirit of this sunny metropolis as you sample its historic sights, fabulous shopping galleria and irresistible cuisine. But don’t limit yourself to the city itself — Mount Vesuvius, the spectacular Amalfi Coast, and the romantic isle of Capri's famous Blue Grotto are all just a short distance away. The well-known, buried city of Pompeii is an archeological wonder, and not far from Naples.

In ancient times it was said that all roads lead to Rome… but in your case, the seaport of Civitavecchia is your road to Rome. Get there and you’ll find out what made the place so popular. The Vatican's Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo, the Colosseum with its lurid history, and the Trevi Fountain — where a tossed coin promises your return — are not to be missed on any visit to the so-called “Eternal City,” one of the cradles of civilization. Take a walking tour of Rome’s many historical landmarks and enjoy the lively sidewalk cafés, ending the day alla romana strolling through the atmospheric Centro Storico.

Livorno is the coastal gateway to beautiful Tuscany, where you’ll find both fan-favorite Pisa and Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. Florence houses some of the world's greatest works of art, from masters like Leonardo da Vinci and Boticelli, plus Michelangelo's David and the Duomo, whose terrace offers breathtaking views of the city’s red-tiled roofs and narrow medieval lanes. Then there’s Pisa, Florence’s rival for political power and a brash, commercial seafaring town that once rivaled the great maritime powers Venice and Genoa. Of course you’ll visit the Leaning Tower, but don’t stop there. Palazzo Agostini houses 12th century remains of Pisa’s city walls, and Piazza dei Cavalieri was consistently the center of Pisan history.

The largest island off the coast of Spain, Mallorca has been inhabited for thousands of years. Palma is its capital, and in recent times it’s become a tourist-friendly destination that’s also favored by Spanish royalty. Everyone can enjoy its natural wonders, like golden-sand beaches, tall pine groves and towering cliffs… not to mention grand churches, top-notch art museums, and lively plazas. The landscape is as varied as the northern mountains and the southern flatlands, with their almond and olive groves. Must-sees on this island fit for royalty include city views from the Castell Belver, and the Cathedral of Santa Maria’s reflection from the lake at Parc de la Mar.

Cruises from Barcelona make for some of the most unforgettable vacations you can imagine. Barcelona looks like a city that should be known for its architecture… and, naturally, it is. From monuments in Romanesque and Renaissance styles to Gothic spires and contemporary curves, there’s little surprise Barcelona was the creative playground of acclaimed architect Antoni Gaudí. But that’s just one reason why cruises out of Barcelona are so seductive. Barcelona’s a feast for the eyes and the palate, alike, and be sure not to miss the chance to try tapas as and visit spots like the La Rambla, Port Vell and especially Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Fun beach bars overlooking the Mediterranean, sleek Spanish designer stores, and Gaudí’s surreal buildings make Barcelona, Spain a whimsical and unique place to visit. For a Mediterranean cruise, Spain is a great place to start — sample the good stuff on one of Carnival’s cruises from Barcelona.
