Carnival Cruise Line has announced that the new Carnival Horizon will offer a series of four-day Bermuda cruises from New York in spring and summer 2018.
The trips are part of the ship’s inaugural season that includes previously announced voyages to Europe from Barcelona and the Caribbean from New York and Miami.
The four-day “long weekend” cruises will depart Thursdays and feature a full-day visit to Bermuda where guests can relax on the island’s pink beaches, enjoy snorkelling, kayaking and other water sports, and visit historical landmarks such as Royal Naval Dockyard and Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse, the oldest cast iron lighthouse in the Western Hemisphere.
Five four-day Bermuda cruises will be offered, departing May 24th, June 21st, July 19th, August 16th, and September 13th, 2018.
Including the five Bermuda sailings aboard Carnival Horizon, Carnival Cruise Line will offer 18 different voyages to the island in 2017-18 departing from five convenient East Coast homeports, including Baltimore, Charleston, New York, Port Canaveral and Fort Lauderdale.
“Bermuda is a beautiful and sought-after destination and what better way to visit this breathtaking island paradise than on the spectacular Carnival Horizon,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
“These visits to Bermuda are part of Carnival Horizon’s terrific inaugural schedule that also features top destinations throughout Europe and the Caribbean, providing our guests with opportunities to create wonderful and fun memories together,” she added.
Carnival Horizon is set to debut April 2nd, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean voyage from Barcelona - the first of four round-trip departures from this Spanish port.
