Carnival Cruise Lines announced some new ship deployments today, some that will take effect by the end of 2013.
Here are the moves:
Carnival Sunshine will leave New Orleans in April 2014 and head to Port Canaveral for year-round Caribbean sailings. Sunshine is currently in Europe, then positioning to New Orleans before the move to Florida.
Carnival Dream will leave Port Canaveral and take Carnival Sunshine’s place in New Orleans in April, offering seven-night year-round itineraries.
Carnival Liberty will bid farewell to Miami and head to Port Canaveral for year-round five- and eight-day Caribbean sailings, effective May 2014.
After years in Baltimore, Carnival Pride says goodbye and heads to Tampa to launch seven-night cruises. Carnival Pride will join Carnival Paradise in Tampa before repositioning to Sydney in August 2014.
Carnival Glory will stay in Miami year-round, alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings staring November 2013.
“These deployment changes will enable us to offer our guests even more exciting Carnival cruise vacation choices from Central Florida and the Gulf region and significantly enhance our leadership positions in the Port Canaveral and New Orleans markets,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO.
