New 9-to-15 Night Sailings Added to Itinerary Lineup
Carnival Cruise Line is branching out from their usual bread-and-butter sailings this fall, offering up 28 individual sailings that will last from nine to 15 nights in duration and will call on 40 different ports of call throughout the Bahamas, Caribbean, Central America, Hawaii and the Mexican Riviera.
Dubbed Carnival Journeys, these new longer sailings are the perfect choice for those who love to sail with Carnival but who are also looking for sailings that fall outside of the normal three to eight night range the popular cruise line has typically offered in the past.
Thanks to their longer durations, Carnival Journey sailings are able to call on more out-of-the-way ports of call that tend to be less frequently visited by large mainstream cruise ships, like Tobago, Grenada, La Paz, Martinique, Bonaire and Ixtapa.
“We have received a tremendous amount of feedback from our guests and travel agent partners about the importance of consistently offering new Carnival cruise experiences,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president. “Carnival Journeys was created to offer our existing customers even more options while helping us to attract those guests who have not had the opportunity to sail with Carnival and may be enticed by these longer, more exotic itineraries.”
The launch cruise for Carnival’s new Journeys program will be the 11-night New Orleans to San Juan voyage aboard Carnival Dream that departs on October 4, 2015. Currently, Carnival’s new longer sailings are on offer right through November of 2016, all of which depart from eight convenient North American homeports that include Los Angeles, Galveston, New Orleans, Miami, Port Canaveral, New York, Baltimore, and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
