Carnival Legend May 2019

Recommended Posts

We were on the May 6 sailing on the Legend. We had two days in Seattle pre cruise and we went to Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Icy Straight Point, and Ketchikan. DH put together some of our pictures and video that were taken. I wish we would have had more pictures to see ahead of time while we counted down to the trip so I figured I’d share the link. It was a memorable cruise and hopefully one day we’ll sail to Alaska again.

Glad you shared and had a great cruise. We are doing Alaska again in one week. The first time was fantastic.

Hello ToriB, Great video! We loved our Alaskan cruise in Aug 2014. Does the Legend still have all of the urns everywhere. I met you and your mother on the Fantasy. Do you still have the Carnival hat I gave you? Pink

Well done, the video was great. We are on Miracle next May to all those ports bar Ketchikan.

Did you both enjoy the Spirit class ship?

Did you eat anywhere on shore that you'd recommend?

Hi Pink! I remember you! The Fantasy feels like it was so long ago. That was my second cruise, and I remember being impressed by how many cruises you’d been on.  I still wear my Carnival hat. 😊 Alaska was one of my favorite trips and the Legend is a great ship. It still has urns everywhere. I hope you are doing well!

The Legend is a great ship. Our previous two cruises were on the Horizon so at first I wasn’t impressed. After spending a week on her I grew to love her.

Thanks for sharing!  We were on this same cruise and I spotted my husband and his cousin for a brief second in Icy Strait 🙂  It was an amazing cruise!

Thank you. This was hubby’s first video he’s made. He enjoyed it and decided to make one of our cruise out of Barcelona last year too. 

I did enjoy the ship. Like I mentioned in an above comment at first I was just comparing her to the Horizon. Obviously the Legend isn’t as new. It doesn’t have all of the speciality restaurants and we tend to eat at those often. The layout is nice and they put out the retractable roof once we were in Alaska. I like that serenity is on the back of the ship. 

Some of our tours included lunch so we didn’t eat at too many places in Alaska. 

We went to Duck Point Smokehouse in Icy Straight Point. It’s right where the ship docks. We saw a whale swim by while eating lunch. There is a fit pit outside and a large fireplace inside. It was a cozy place. 

In Skagway we went to Skagway Brewing company. Downstairs has bar foods and a drink menu. We got some appetizers and drinks down there. Upstairs has a full menu but we didn’t go up there. 

I’m not sure if you have time in Seattle before your cruise but we ate lots of yummy food there.

You’re welcome! It’s was a memorable cruise. I definitely wouldn’t mind to go back again. It was so much fun spotting all of the wildlife and the snow capped mountains were beautiful. I wish the weather would have been sunnier in Juneau and Skagway. 

That’s too funny they have a special appearance in it.

Thanks Tori, I had Skagway Brewing on my list, so glad you liked it.

We are sailing from SFO, but Seattle looks look a great spot to visit.

Thanks for sharing this. My wife and I are flying to Seattle in August for four days before boarding the Legend to cruise to Alaska. We've never visited the north-west of the US nor Alaska so are really looking forward to it!

Would you happen to have any of the Alaska fun times?   The maps/guides/ excursion pamphlets?

I don’t, I’m sorry. Through the week I kept the fun times but when we were packing up I just dropped them into the trash. I may have the Glacier Bay info they leave in the room. I’ll check.

Here are a few of the brochures or maps I have. I’m sorry for the delay in posting. This is what they leave in your room for Glacier Bay.

This is a brochure from the White Pass Route in Skagway. In the morning we booked dog sledding through Carnival and then booked the train independently due to what times were offered on Carnival vs the train website. The only thing different was we couldn’t board by the ship and had to board at the depot. We were already in town so it wasn’t a big deal at all.
