Carnival Cruise Lines will increase capacity on its seven-day Southern Caribbean itineraries from San Juan, as well as on its four- and five-day cruises from Miami, deploying newer, larger ships in both markets.
The 2,974-passenger Carnival Valor will launch a five-port, seven-day schedule from San Juan February 10th, 2013, becoming the newest and largest ship to operate year-round from that port.
Carnival Valor will replace the 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory, which will reposition from San Juan to Miami to assume the Carnival Destiny’s four- and five-day cruises beginning February 4th next year.
Carnival Victory will be the newest and largest ship to operate year-round four- and five-day voyages from South Florida.
Additionally, Carnival Destiny will offer a 16-day transatlantic crossing departing Miami February 4th and arriving Civitavecchia (Rome) on February 20th, 2013.
Details on the Carnival Destiny’s deployment following the trans-Atlantic crossing will be announced at a later date.
