In a press release on Friday, Carnival Cruise Lines announced its largest Bermuda season ever, scheduled for 2019/2020, with more than 40 voyages visiting the island nation, including eight-week cruises departing from Baltimore and Charleston next year.
Six different Carnival ships – Carnival Breeze, Magic, Pride, Radiance, Sunshine, and Sunrise – will offer four- to nine-day Bermuda cruises from five ports along the eastern seaboard between now and next year.
Carnival is the only cruise line to offer round-trip Bermuda cruises from Charleston, Port Canaveral, and Fort Lauderdale. Nine-day Bermuda departures have also been added to the New York-based schedules of the totally transformed Carnival Sunrise and Carnival Radiance, which include four-day cruises to the island as well.
“Guest feedback on our Bermuda program has been nothing short of sensational, and we’re delighted to expand our offerings to provide even more guests an opportunity to experience all this tropical island paradise has to offer,” said Fred Stein, Carnival’s vice president of revenue planning and deployment.
The seven-week cruises to Bermuda from Baltimore will be offered aboard Carnival Pride and will spend three days in Bermuda; while a seven-day cruise from Charleston aboard Carnival Sunshine will feature two days on the island, along with a visit to the private Bahamian destination of Princess Cays.
While in Bermuda, guests can relax on the island’s legendary pink beaches; enjoy snorkeling, kayaking, and other water sports; and visit historical landmarks such as the Royal Naval Dockyard and Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse. Shopping, dining and golfing experiences are also available.
