First Fun Ship to return to short cruises
'We’re delighted that Carnival Breeze is our first ship to return operating short cruise itineraries and our second ship to resume from the Port of Galveston,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said. 'Short cruises are very popular with our guests — roughly half our fleet operates cruises of five days or less — so we are excited to broaden our itinerary offerings to include these convenient and affordable getaways.'
Today’s four-day sailing will visit Cozumel while five-day cruises departing Mondays and Saturdays call at Cozumel and Costa Maya or Progreso, Mexico.
Later this month, Carnival Miracle is scheduled to begin sailing Alaska cruises and the new Mardi Gras will enter service from Port Canaveral.
Year-round Galveston from 2000
Carnival launched Galveston's first year-round cruises in 2000.
Today, the line remains the No. 1 cruise operator from the Texas port and the only line with three year-round ships there. Carnival Vista, Carnival Breeze and Carnival Dream operate 150 voyages annually from Galveston, carrying an estimated 750,000 passengers a year.
