Prior to arriving at Tampa, the Carnival Miracle will sail Alaska in summer 2018, return to Australia for the fall/winter of 2019, and return to Alaska for summer of 2019 as well. After the Alaska cruise season in 2019, the Carnival Legend will sail a 16 night Hawaii voyage departing Vancouver on September 26, 2019. This cruise will end in Los Angeles. On October 12, 2019, the Carnival Legend will begin its repositioning with a 15 night Panama Canal cruise departing Los Angeles that ends in Tampa.
Although the Carnival Legend will primarily sail seven night cruises from Tampa, Carnival has a few special voyages planned for the ship. For example, on January 25, 2020, Carnival has an 8 night partial Panama Canal transit cruise from Tampa. Another different itinerary is a 14 night Panama Canal cruise departing Tampa on December 1, 2019. More details about these cruises can be found on Carnival's website.
As of the time of writing this, the Carnival Legend is in dry-dock. Carnival's press release today said the ship is receiving Guy's Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, Red Frog Rum Bar, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, upgrades to Camp Ocean, upgrades to Circle C, and work to the ship's retail spaces. This means the Carnival Legend will have several popular Fun Ship 2.0 features when it arrives in Tampa in October 2019.
