Port Canaveral welcomed Carnival Freedom to a new program of four- and five-night cruises.

Sailing from Cruise Terminal 6, the ship will call at ports including Nassau, Princess Cays, Bimini, Freeport, Amber Cove, Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay.

'We’re excited to welcome Carnival Freedom to the fleet of Carnival cruise ships homeported at Port Canaveral,' said Capt. John Murray, port CEO. 'Her arrival adds even more quality cruise sailings available from our port. We’re very proud of our longstanding partnership with Carnival Cruise Line, and our collective efforts to provide an exceptional cruising experience.'

Joins Mardi Gras, Carnival Liberty, Carnival Magic

'Having Carnival Freedom join Mardi Gras, Carnival Liberty and Carnival Magic sailing from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean offers yet another option for our guests to enjoy all the fun a Carnival cruise offers from one of our most popular homeports,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said.

In keeping with tradition, port executives presented Carnival Freedom Capt. Josip Mladina with a plaque marking the ship’s first visit to Canaveral.
