Carnival Legend cruise ship

Carnival Legend departed from Baltimore on March 24 for a seven night cruise to The Bahamas. Due to the bridge collapse in Baltimore, the cruise ship will now return to Norfolk, Virginia on the 31st.

Carnival will be providing a complimentary bus service back to Baltimore for passengers who are on the cruise.

The March 31, 2024 sailing will now depart and return to Norfolk. The cruise ship has two more cruises scheduled out of Baltimore before heading to Europe for the summer season. Carnival has yet to make an announcement on these sailings. The cruise line’s Brand Ambassador John Heald said that they will let future guests know as soon as possible.

“Our thoughts remain with the impacted families and first responders in Baltimore,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “We appreciate the pledge made by President Biden today to dedicate all available resources to reopen Baltimore Harbor to marine traffic as soon as possible. As those plans are finalized, we will update our future cruise guests on when we will return home to Baltimore, but in the meantime, we appreciate the quick response and support from officials in Norfolk.”

After Carnival Legend departs for Europe, Carnival has another ship scheduled to head to Baltimore to take its place.

Carnival Pride is set to begin cruises from Baltimore on April 21, 2024.  Guests who are booked on one of these cruises should stay in touch with Carnival incase any changes are needed to be made.

Cruise Fever will continue to monitor the situation in Baltimore and will have all updates to cruise itineraries as they are announced.
