Where Carnival Cruise Ships Will Go During Voluntary Suspension

(Updated April 3, 2020 11:55 a.m. EDT) Wondering where your favorite Carnival cruise ship will be during the month-long voluntary suspension of sailings?

We’ve got the answer.

Carnival Vista will spend a month at sea before welcoming guests again.

Carnival Ships Will Dock Around The Nation

“Where will the ships go?” That’s the No. 1 question we’ve been asked ever since Carnival Cruise Line announced that they would be suspending sailings for a month.

After all, with so many ships in their fleet, Carnival was going to be seeking a whole lot of temporary homes.

Making things even more complicated? The fact that all of the other major cruise lines in the country would be seeking places in which to berth their ships, too!

Now, however, we know exactly where the ships in Carnival’s fleet will spend the next month or so.

Where Each Carnival Ship Will Spend The Next Month

What follows is a list of where each ship will be, organized alphabetically by the name of the city/port in which it will be docked. Unless otherwise noted, the ship is expected to stay at the indicated port until the sailings resume.

  • Baltimore will be home to the Carnival Pride, which will arrive there on Sunday, March 15.
  • Charleston will welcome the Carnival Sunshine on Monday, March 16.
  • Fort Lauderdale plays host to the Carnival Sunrise starting on Monday, March 16.
  • Freeport, Bahamas will host several ships. Carnival Conquest arrived there on Saturday, March 14; Carnival Magic is making her way there, and the Carnival Elation is currently in Freeport for a drydock.
  • Galveston is expecting the Carnival Dream to arrive on Monday, March 16.
  • Jacksonville welcomed the Carnival Ecstasy on Saturday, March 14.
