Carnival offers its largest, most diverse Bermuda program

Carnival Cruise Line will operate its largest Bermuda season ever in 2019-2020, with more than 40 voyages. These include eight weeklong cruises from Baltimore and Charleston next year.

In total, six Carnival ships — Carnival Breeze, Magic, Pride, Radiance, Sunshine and Sunrise — will offer four- to nine-day Bermuda cruises from five homeports along the eastern seaboard between now and next year.

New York, Baltimore, Charleston, Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale

Carnival is the only line to offer round-trip Bermuda cruises from Charleston, Port Canaveral and Fort Lauderdale. Nine-day Bermuda departures have also been added to the New York-based schedules of the totally transformed Carnival Sunrise and Carnival Radiance that include four-day cruises to the island as well.

The diverse Bermuda schedule not only encompasses a wide range of cruise durations and homeports along with a variety of ship sizes and amenities.

'Sensational' response

'Guest feedback on our Bermuda program has been nothing short of sensational and we’re delighted to expand our offerings to provide even more guests an opportunity to experience all this tropical island paradise has to offer,' said Carnival's Fred Stein, VP revenue planning and deployment.

The seven weeklong cruises from Baltimore will be offered aboard Carnival Pride and spend three days in Bermuda, while a seven-day cruise from Charleston aboard Carnival Sunshine gives two days on the island along with a visit to Princess Cays in the Bahamas.

Baltimore departures include May 31, Aug. 2 and 23, Sept. 6 and 20, and Oct. 4 and 18, 2020. The cruise from Charleston sails Oct. 17, 2020.
