Hey folks. I just got treated to a tour of the Carnival Legend today, and I figured you all might like to see the pictures. The wife and I are possibly heading up a group cruise next year on either Legend or Dream. Our TA was able to take us on one of the ship inspection tours that they offer TAs. She is a really nice ship, and I tried to get as many shots as possible. Hope you like them:

Wow!!! That's awesome! I was wondering how you managed to get a tour of the ship.....maybe I need to find me a TA like yours. I'd love to tour any ship!

Darth,
Does this mean the Legend will be going out of Tampa? We would be interested in going out of there for the first time. We have departed from Port Canaveral, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Miami in the past.

Legend has been sailing out of Tampa for a while now. We've been booked for more than a year to sail in Oct.

Nice pics. Can't wait to see it in person.

Yes, and Tampa is a great port. I have sailed from there six times, its always organized and not terribly crowded since there is only the one ship in port.

You are certainly welcome, they have a fine ship there waiting for you!

It was a nice little "snack" for us, since we still have two months until we cruise on Liberty!
