In addition, she pointed out Carnival will be resuming visits to Grand Turk in less than two weeks, as earlier reported. The first ship back will be Carnival Ecstasy on Nov. 1.
This finalizes Carnival's schedule of calls to the few remaining Caribbean ports that had not been added back to its itineraries following the recent hurricanes.
'I hope you are as excited as we are at this great news,' Duffy said in a note on www.carnival.com.
'The Caribbean continues to be the cruise industry's most popular cruising region and we here at Carnival, along with our destination partners, greatly value your business and look forward to providing you with a truly memorable and exceptional vacation experience,' she added.
Duffy also noted that while the Caribbean recovers from the hurricanes, Carnival is continuing to provide support to its friends and partners impacted by the storms.
'Over the past many weeks, we have provided deliveries of supplies to different Caribbean islands. We have also been fundraising and, in total, the Carnival Corporation family has committed $12.5 million to hurricane relief. And, just recently we chartered the Carnival Fascination to FEMA to house relief workers in St. Croix.'
Carnival Fascination will resume its year-round weekly departures from San Juan on Feb. 18 following the FEMA charter.
Duffy also provided a link to the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association's new website with information on how the Caribbean is open and ready to receive visitors.
