I asked the Captain last week when I was cruising about the coins. He said that he knew about the tradition, but didn't know where they were. The Maitre D said it was under the hull.
I was satisfied, but the Captain went one step further. While I was dining, an official looking man came over and asked for my name and Stateroom number. I thought I was going to the 'naughty room', so I asked why. He said the Captain was sending an officer to take me to see the coins.
The next day, I was taken to a box that is welded on the outside of the ship, and there they were.
On the Legend, the coins are up the ladder from the 10th deck, and right above the mini golf course. There is a dodgeball court right next to it, with netting all around.
When I cruise in November on the Destiny, I'm going to look for them there.

Yes, apparently all of the Carnival Cruise Ships have a "lucky coin" which is in a small box which is welded shut somewhere on the ship itself.

Does anyone know where the one on the Carnival Ecstacy is located?

It is a maritime superstition that Every ship that is built, no matter what kind has the coin welded before the ship is completely built. It appeases the Gods, and creates good luck.
I don't believe that they are moved around.
The legend was Fabulous....you will lOVE it.

The coin ensures safe passage on whatever waterway the ship is sailing.

Unfortunately, no free cruise

I'll have to search Freedom and see if I can find it, and then rub it for good luck in the casino!

Look at the base of the mast, right by the jogging track.
