Carnival Cruise Line reports that the Carnival Legend has returned to Australia, arriving in Sydney where the ship will sail its third season of cruises from the city.
The ship has a range of new features, including the marine-themed Camp Ocean kids club, which replaces Camp Carnival. Designed for children aged 2-11 years, Camp Ocean has more than 200 educational and engaging activities, as well as three areas for kids of different ages to enjoy plenty of fun at sea.
The ship arrived in Australia at the end of a 17-night South Pacific cruise from Hawaii, which departed Honolulu on September 23 and visited ports in Tahiti, Fiji and New Caledonia before arriving in Sydney. It joins sibling ship Carnival Spirit, which is homeported in Sydney year-round.
Carnival Legend will remain in local waters until April 1, 2017, sailing on a variety of itineraries ranging from three- to five-night short cruises to longer seven- to 12-night cruises around the South Pacific. Also on the ship's agenda in January 2017 is a 10-night New Zealand voyage, which includes the ship's maiden call to four New Zealand ports.
