Reservations opened for Carnival Firenze, the second Carnival Cruise Line ship to showcase 'Carnival Fun Italian Style.'

Carnival (formerly Costa) Firenze is to begin sailing year-round from Long Beach, California starting in May 2024 through April 2025.

Named after Florence, Italy, the ship was 'designed to evoke the same charm and beauty found in Florence and she'll also pack in plenty of Carnival fun,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said.

Follows Carnival Venezia

The ship follows the newly handed-over Carnival Venezia in the 'Carnival Fun Italian Style' concept. Carnival Venezia will sail year-round from New York.
