Carnival Restarts Voyages From New York City
After nearly three years, Carnival Cruise Line is back in New York City.
Carnival Magic set sail on a four-night Bermuda voyage from the Manhattan Cruise Terminal on Thursday. The ship will stay in New York through late September, also offering Caribbean and Canada sailings.
With its return to the Big Apple, Carnival has now resumed revenue operations in all 14 of its United States homeports.
Princess Cruises Resumes Sailings From Australia
Another cruise line is back in service in Australia, as Coral Princess set sail on Thursday from Brisbane. The Princess Cruises vessel is the first ship to homeport at Brisbane’s new terminal, and is the first MedallionClass vessel to call Australia home.
Coral Princess will offer 11 cruises from Brisbane, ranging from three to 12 nights between June and August. In November, it will offer another 10 voyages from the port.
In late May, P&O Cruises Australia kicked off Australia’s cruise restart when Pacific Explorer set sail from Sydney.
Costa Toscana Christened in Spain
Costa Cruises’ newest flagship Costa Toscana was christened during a ceremony in Barcelona yesterday.
The ship’s godmother Chanel Terrero Martínez officially named and blessed the ship during the event, which was followed by a DJ set by Meduza and a gala dinner onboard.
Costa Toscana is part of the Carnival Corporation’s Excellence-class, which includes P&O Cruises’ Iona and Arvia, as well as Carnival Cruise Line’s Mardi Gras and upcoming Carnival Celebration.
This summer and fall, Toscana will continue offering seven-night Mediterranean cruises.
