Carnival Cruise Line Itinerary Changes
In a letter sent to guests booked on Dec. 2, Carnival Cruise Line informed them of the rerouting changes that impact three ships, including two departures from Port Canaveral, Florida and one from the Port of Galveston, Texas.
The cruise line says, “As we continue to refine our operational plans for your cruise, we have made some changes to your sailing itinerary.”
Carnival magicThe December 4th cruise from Port Canaveral will still stop at Aruba and Curacao, but unsurprisingly, the ship calls at Amber Cove rather than Grand Turk as the island is not yet open to cruise ships. . Carnival magic is on an eight-day trip, which will end in Florida on December 12, 2021.
Mardi Gras also has a route change from Port Canaveral on December 4th. The ship’s seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruise will stop at Nassau, Amber Cove, and San Juan. The ship will not visit Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos Islands as planned. The flagship of the Carnival was to be the first to return to the island in over 20 months, but it looks like it will take longer.
Vista’s Carnival The seven-day navigation on December 4 from Galveston, TX has also been adjusted. The same ports will remain on the trip but in a different order. The ship will first visit Cozumel in Mexico, then a stopover in Belize, with the last stopover in Mahogany Bay in Honduras.
It will be a disappointment that Grand Turk is no longer on the route for Mardi Gras and Carnival magic. The island has remained closed to cruise ships since the industry hiatus in the spring of 2020. The good news is, the cruise hub plans to reopen in December 2021 in hopes that Carnival cruise ships will resume visiting at a higher rate. later date.
