The former Costa Venezia will showcase 'Carnival Fun Italian Style.'
22 unique itineraries
The wide range of sailing options include 10 cruise lengths and 22 different itineraries calling at 25 ports across 14 countries.
'Our summer season in New York has been extremely popular, so increasing our offerings with a larger, newer ship that sails year-round provides the opportunity for more guests in the tri-state area and beyond to enjoy the convenience of sailing right from Manhattan,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said. 'Carnival Venezia will give guests our signature fun, combined with Italian theming, to beautiful destinations from the Bahamas and the Caribbean to Bermuda and Canada.'
Summer sailings to Caribbean, Bermuda, Canada/New England
Following a 15-day trans-Atlantic 'Carnival Journeys' cruise from Barcelona that departs May 29, 2023, Carnival Venezia will sail from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal, and for the summer will offer four-, five-, six- and eight-day cruises to the Caribbean, Bermuda and ports in Canada and New England, including Halifax and Saint John.
Then Caribbean, Bahamas and Miami as a transit call
Beginning Sept. 29, the ship will operate eight- to 12-day cruises to the eastern Caribbean, southern Caribbean and the Bahamas, visiting destinations like St. Thomas, San Juan and Aruba, along with four of Carnival’s private destinations: Half Moon Cay, Princess Cays, Amber Cove and Grand Turk. In addition, Carnival Venezia’s nine-day cruises will feature Miami as a port of call.
Built in 2019 and set to undergo enhancements before entering service, Carnival Venezia will be home to many of the activities and experiences aboard other Carnival ships, including Carnival Waterworks, Piano Bar 88, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, Bonsai Sushi, Seafood Shack, Cloud 9 Salon & Spa and the Serenity adult-only retreat.
