Carnival Cruise Line will deploy the 2,124-passenger Carnival Legend in 2025 to continue its seasonal offering from San Francisco, offering alternating 10-day Alaska cruises and four-day Baja Mexico sailings. In addition, Carnival Legend will sail two Carnival Journeys cruises: a 14-day Panama Canal transit from Tampa, Fla., to San Francisco and a 15-day Hawaiian getaway. These sailings are now available for sale.
“Because Carnival Miracle has been sailing from San Francisco since 2022, we wanted to offer our guests a new option for the 2025 season – Carnival Legend is a sister ship to Carnival Miracle.” “She’s similar in size and layout but offers some variety in features and amenities,” said Fred Stein, vice president of revenue planning and deployment. “Carnival Legend will be a perfect addition to the port as we continue to expand our West Coast service offerings and strengthen our position as the cruise line having the highest number of guests embarked from California,” said the port’s manager.
The following is an overview of the new Carnival Legend offerings from San Francisco beginning in April 2025:
Carnival Legend will begin 10-day cruises to Alaska on 12 May 2025. Guests will visit picturesque destinations, including Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and a memorable scenic cruising of Tracy Arm Fjord in Alaska and Prince Rupert, B.C. in Canada.
Carnival Legend’s first cruise from San Francisco on 8 May 2025 will bring guests on a four-day Baja Mexico cruise with a stop in Ensenada, Mexico, before the ship’s Alaska series begins. Carnival Legend will offer eight more of these four-day weekend getaways throughout the summer.
Ahead of its move to San Francisco, Carnival Legend will offer a 14-day Carnival Journeys Panama Canal cruise that departs Tampa, Fla., on 24 April 2025. The ship will visit Cartagena, Colombia, before transiting the Panama Canal, followed by visits to Puntarenas, Costa Rica and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, arriving in San Francisco on 8 May 2025.
Following its series of Alaska and Baja Mexico cruises, Carnival Legend will sail a unique 15-day roundtrip Carnival Journeys cruise to Hawaii from San Francisco. Departing on 21 September 2025, the ship will visit Kahului, Maui; Honolulu, Oahu; Nawiliwili, Kauai; Hilo, Hawaii; and Ensenada, Mexico.
Carnival Legend features many of the signature venues guests know and love on board – from Guy’s Burger Joint to the BlueIguana Cantina, the RedFrog and Alchemy bars, as well as WaterWorks Aqua Park and The Punchliner Comedy Club – and offers several accommodation options, including 50 suites and more than 630 balcony staterooms.
Carnival recently announced deployment plans for 2025 Alaska cruises departing Seattle. Carnival Spirit and Carnival Luminosa will each offer week-long sailings that visit the region’s most popular destinations.
