Carnival Legend joins Galveston lineup in late 2025

Carnival Legend's deployment adds more variety to cruises from Galveston
In autumn 2025 Carnival Legend will join Carnival Dream, Carnival Breeze and Carnival Jubilee at the Port of Galveston to offer varied four- to 10-day western Caribbean sailings.

In addition, the ship will several Panama Canal cruises including two 'Carnival Journeys.'

This follows the recent news that Carnival Legend will replace Carnival Miracle in San Francisco in spring 2025.

'Carnival Legend’s deployment in Galveston strengthens our already robust portfolio of sailings from Texas, adding more variety to the offered itineraries, as well as another ship choice, and more opportunities for cruises to Mexico and other western Caribbean that fit any vacation length,' said Carnival's Fred Stein, VP revenue planning and deployment.

From late 2025 into early 2026, Carnival Legend will alternate between shorter and longer cruises. Among the itineraries is a five-day sailing to Cozumel and Progreso. Eight four-day weekend getaways also call Cozumel. Seven newly available 10-day itineraries include such destinations as Grand Cayman, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Mahogany Bay (Roatán), Belize and Cozumel. An eight-day Christmas cruise departing Dec. 18, 2025 will visit Mahogany Bay, Belize City, Costa Maya and Cozumel.

Panama Canal

Before its Galveston move, Carnival Legend will sail a 16-day 'Carnival Journeys' cruise from San Francisco on Oct. 6, 2025. The ship will visit Cabo San Lucas and Puntarenas (Costa Rica) transit the Panama Canal, then call Cartagena before arriving in Galveston. A second 14-day 'Carnival Journeys' cruise, round-trip Galveston, departs on Feb. 2, 2026 and visits Montego Bay, Aruba, Curaçao, Cartagena, Colón (Panama), Puerto Limón and Cozumel.
