Carnival Cruise Line has opened for sale approximately 400 cruises that visit Celebration Key, its new exclusive port destination in The Bahamas. Twelve Carnival ships will visit the destination in 2025 and 2026, sailing from eight homeports.
"As the first port destination exclusively designed for Carnival Cruise Line guests, Celebration Key will provide the ultimate Carnival fun in the sun," said Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy. "And we've seen that there is a lot of interest in Celebration Key as thousands of Carnival guests signed up over the last week to be the first to know about the itineraries and features."
Celebration Key will offer a mile-long white sand beach, authentic Bahamian shopping and dining, and excursions to Grand Bahama. Multiple freshwater lagoons will offer numerous recreational and leisure activities for both families and adults. The destination will feature a cruise pier that can accommodate up to two of Carnival's Excel-class ships.
