Galveston, Texas will be the new homeport of Carnival Legend for the winter 2025-2026 season.
Carnival Cruise Line has announced that in the fall of 2025, Carnival Legend will join Carnival Dream, Carnival Breeze, and Carnival Jubilee at the Port of Galveston and offer a selection of four- to ten-day Western Caribbean sailings as part of its 2025-26 deployment. Carnival Legend will also offer two Panama Canal cruises.
“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 (locations) that fit any vacation length,” said Fred Stein, Carnival’s VP of revenue planning and deployment, in a press release.
