The Jacksonville, Florida-based Carnival Elation will offer a cruise to Bermuda and the Bahamas next spring.

The eight-day voyage sails April 7, and features an overnight at the Royal Naval Dockyard's Heritage Wharf in Bermuda and an extended stay at Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas.

Including this newly added sailing, in the coming year Carnival Cruise Line will offer 19 four- to eight-day Bermuda voyages departing from six East Coast US ports. They include New York, Baltimore, Charleston, Port Canaveral and Fort Lauderdale.

Carnival Elation will also offer a special three-port, six-day Bahamas cruise round-trip from Jacksonville April 15, 2018, visiting visit Freeport, Nassau and Half Moon Cay.

The new voyages complement the ship’s year-round four- and five-day schedule from Jacksonville. Carnival Elation is Jacksonville’s only year-round cruise operator and carries approximately 170,000 passengers annually from the port.
