Carnival Cruise Line announced that Carnival Legend had undergone refurbishment in time for her new Alaska season, with features including ice igloos in Camp Ocean Kids Club and a toboggan track on her water slide.
Other features highlighted by the line include an Ice Bar and an Arctic petting zoo for younger passengers.
News of the refit with pictures was shared from cruise line’s Australian Facebook page hundred times on Saturday morning, before Carnival declared it was an April Fool’s joke at midday.
Carnival Legend set sail from Sydney Saturday afternoon at the close of her 4th extended summer season in Australia. The ship will commence her Alaska season at the end of April and return Down Under in October.
