Carnival Cruise Line Announces Extensive European Season for Carnival Legend

Carnival Cruise Line announced it would operate its most extensive European season ever aboard the Carnival Legend.

Passengers sailing on the Carnival Legend in 2021 will be able to enjoy visits to 58 stunning ports across 21 countries, including the cruise line’s first voyages to the Greek Isles and a return to Iceland, Norway and the Baltic.

Following its European season, Carnival Legend will shift to year-round deployment from Baltimore in November 2021. The cruise line also announced the Carnival Pride would move from Baltimore to Tampa in order to make room for the Carnival Legend.

“For Carnival Legend, we’ve assembled our most diverse season ever with opportunities to visit an array of breathtaking sites across nearly two dozen countries, all combined with the one-of-a-kind vacation experience that Carnival is known for. It’s really the best way to see Europe,” Carnival vice president Fred Stein said in a statement.

Carnival Legend will reposition for its European season with a 15-day transatlantic crossing from Tampa to Barcelona March 26-April 10, 2021. From there, the ship will operate a wide range of voyages from Barcelona, London and Rome.
