WOW, A Legend is Coming to Europe

Carnival Cruise Lines have just announced they are returning to Europe for the 2020 cruising season. They last sailed in Europe in April 2018 when they launched Carnival Horizon. She was built in Italy so it made sense to do a small selection of sailings in April in the Med before she sailed to New York on the 9th May.


For the 2020 season Carnival are committing to an extensive programme from June to October with sailings ranging from 9 to 16 Nights, Carnival Legend is set to visit 34 ports in 14 countries and Carnival have put a huge emphasis on “off the beaten track” destinations and experiences. Legend will call at Greenland, Norway, Iceland, Greece, Portugal & Croatia.

One of the unique points of the Carnival Legend itineraries is they will sail from multiple ports, Dover to Barcelona, Venice to Barcelona, which makes for some really nice pre & post hotel stays.
