Oscar-winner Dench broke the traditional bottle of champagne against the ship's hull to officially name Carnival Legend. Dench was named a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1988. Built in Finland, the 88,500-ton 2,124-passenger Carnival Legend features 12 passenger decks, 16 bars and lounges, four swimming pools, a three-deck water slide, Internet cafe, 14,500-square-foot health spa, duty-free shopping mall, wedding chapel, video arcade, 1,800-square-ft. children's play area and three restaurants. Carnival Legend is the 17th "Fun Ship" in Carnival's fleet, and is the first Carnival vessel to sail a European itinerary. Following two Europe cruises, Legend will sail to New York for Canada/New England cruises through October, followed by sailings to Bermuda from Philadelphia and Baltimore, and a schedule of southern Caribbean cruises from Fort Lauderdale beginning November 10.
