We enjoyed an amazing cruise on the Carnival Legend to Alaska this summer. The ship is the perfect size to enjoy not only cruising to Alaska but time on the ship. Today we are sharing our top 7 favorites on the Carnival Legend.
The staff on the Carnival Legend was seriously fantastic! They had us giggling on a daily basis while still providing amazing customer service. We talked to our room steward Larsen and he told us the ship is a family and their goal is to make the guests feel like they are part of the family. Larsen was amazing and did such a great job during our cruise. John needed an ice pack for his knee and Larsen made sure that we had fresh ice nightly. The wait staff in the Nouveau Steakhouse was just as excited as we were when humpback whales swam right by the boat. They made sure that we not only had an amazing meal but pointed out when they saw whales alongside the boat.
If you are taking a cruise on the Carnival Legend, you need to book a reservation at the steakhouse! The view from the restaurant is probably the best view we have seen from any cruise ship steakhouse or steakhouse on land. Especially in Alaska when you can watch the humpback whales swim by while enjoying a delicious meal. If you are taking an Alaska cruise on the Carnival Legend, make sure and see if they are offering fresh Alaskan halibut filet on the menu.
This fairytale hideaway is the perfect spot to read a book, watch for whales or enjoy a cup of coffee! Tucked away on the side of the ship the Enchanted Forest pathway is a true treat on the Carnival Legend.
Unicorn Cafe because hello unicorns!
Seriously there is a Unicorn Cafe on board the Carnival Legend with unicorn figurines and fairy tale paintings!
Cruising to Alaska and being able to sit on our own balcony was amazing. The balcony was the perfect space to spot humpback whales, relax with a cup of coffee and watch the day go by. We spent a lot of time on our balcony during our cruise.
The Carnival Legend is a smaller ship that is easy to maneuver around. You can find your way around quickly and easily.
There have been some great 2.0 updates to the Carnival Legend including Bonsai Sushi, Cherry on Top, Redfrog Pub, and a new waterworks. We didn’t take part in a slide down Waterworks while we were in Alaska but they looked fantastic.
Towel Animal Theater
This was our first time seeing Towel Animal Theater and we loved it! So dang funny! The towel animals come to life and share their side of the Carnival Cruise experience. This show is def not just for kids! We had so much fun watching it and would totally go and see it again.
These are just a few of the things that we loved on the Carnival Legend! We are so thankful to Carnival for hosting us on this great ship and giving us the chance to see Alaska.
