Issues

On August 21, 2002, during the christening ceremony, Dame Judi Dench took three attempts to smash the bottle against the ship's hull, aided by ship's captain Claudio Cupisci. The third attempt successfully smashed the bottle but the force sent the flowing champagne all over her. She took the soaking in good spirits and announced "I am godmother to 13 godchildren and a god-dog - now I'm godmother to a great ship."

On July 13, 2005, Carnival Legend left Tortola and was heading back to New York City. At 5:10 PM, the ship suddenly listed 14 degrees to the starboard side, resulting in some minor injuries. The crew came on to the intercom a few minutes later to announce to passengers that there had been a computer glitch. Crew members indicated that a list of that degree was without precedent in their experience.

On August 3, 2005, around 10 pm, heavy smoke was seen coming from the lower levels towards the front of the ship. In minutes, there was an announcement for everyone to proceed to the upper, open decks. The Cruise Director announced "there was a problem in the engine room and that something had overheated". People had to stay put for over an hour. No real explanation or compensation was given.

During the May 20,2006 cruise, Ramesh Krishnamurthy, age 35, from Plumstead, Pennsylvania, was presumed dead after jumping off the Carnival Legend at 1 am on Saturday, May 27, 2006. He was reported jumping out of his balcony room, 6227, after an argument with his wife in front of his children, 450 miles northeast of Florida. Foul play is not suspected, and he was believed to have been under the influence. The ship remained in the vicinity for eleven hours, delaying the Legend's arrival back to New York City the following day until 8 pm. Coast Guard officials were sent out to aid in the search, but he was never found.

During the September 2, 2007 cruise, there was a complete loss of power for approximately an hour, during the first day at sea. Because of this, the ship arrived late at port the next day. The cause of this problem was not explained to the passengers.
