Carnival Legend Temporarily Relocates Homeport to Norfolk, Virginia After Baltimore Bridge Collapse

After the tragic collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge, Carnival Cruise Line has announced that they will temporarily relocate the Carnival Legend’s homeport from Baltimore to Norfolk, Virginia. This decision was made in the wake of the container ship crash that caused the bridge to crumble. As a result of the bridge closure, Carnival has arranged for guests returning on Sunday to be provided with a complimentary bus ride back to Baltimore.
