Carnival Legend Pool, Water Slides, and Sunbathing
The Carnival Legend has 3 pools plus a small "kiddy" pool for wading that is part of the Camp Carnival program. The pools have saltwater and there are fresh water showers provided so you can rinse off. Reportedly, the maximum pool depth is 3' 8" -- enough to take a dunk and cool off, but not really deep enough, or large enough, to swim in. Given this, the area around the pool is best suited for sunbathing on 2 tiered decks.
The main pool area consists of two pools divided by the Avalon Bar. "The Camelot Pool" and "The Avalon Pool" located in the middle of the ship on Deck 9. Each is flanked by a hot tub. The Avalon Pool is enclosed under a retractable roof. At the opposite end of the Camelot Pool is a stage which, during most hours of the day, there is some activity going on -- anything from a Caribbean band to a member of the ship's staff leading an activity or game. Typically, the pool hours are from 8 AM to 10 PM.
Located behind The Unicorn Cafe on the Lido Deck (Deck 9) is the Adults-Only Serenity Area. There is a spa, pool, full service bar, padded loungers and other comfort features. There is no live music in the Serenity area, this is your better bet for a quieter outdoor area on Carnival Legend. The Serenity Deck being right next to the Lido Buffet has its advantages -- you are only steps away from grabbing a quick bite to eat if you feel like snacking while lying-out under the sun!
Typically, all pools on Carnival Legend are open from 8AM to 8PM except the last sea day when they close at 6PM. The hot tub Forward closes at 8PM; Midship 10PM, and the AFT hot tub closes at midnight.
Carnival's Twister water slide is 214' long and the entry to the slide is located on Deck 11 Aft (Sports Deck). The Twister water slide on Carnival Legend is 2-stories high and empties out into its own separate pool. The water slide typically operates from 10 AM to 5 PM and there is a 42" minimum height requirement. Courtesy of the Carnival Legend's 2014 makeover, you'll also enjoy the thrill of plummeting down a 34' drop featured on the Green Thunder (a 187' water slide).
The Carnival Legend's Splash Park offers fun for everyone. The Splash Park is complete with super splash toys, and the 150 gallon PowerDrencher Tipping bucket only adds to the fun for everyone!
There is a children's wading pool is located on Deck 11 Aft (Sports Deck) on the Carnival Legend next to the waterslide entrance.
Carnival Legend Pool, Water Slide & Sunbathing Tips:
When arriving in the pool area, you will need to sign-out a towel. There will be a $22 charge per towel to your onboard account for each towel you fail to return. These are sturdy towels and if you want to purchase one, you can from the order form in your room.
Babies & Infants in Pools: Carnival's official policy is "no swim diapers, children must be potty trained." Camp Carnival stresses this point to all the families that bring their kids. We have not heard reports on whether the policy is strictly enforced.
While Carnival does its best to discourage this, sunbathers do show-up at 8 AM and try to hog the lounge chairs for the day.
