Carnival Cruise Line has opened bookings for the first series of year-round cruises from Norfolk, Virginia, the biggest ever operational schedule for cruises from the port. The first phase will see Carnival Sunshine sailing from Norfolk from February 18, 2025 to April 2025.
“Carnival Sunshine is the perfect ship to usher in this next step for service expansion from Norfolk’s Half Moone Cruise Terminal, and as we work closely with city and port officials on our plans to increase from seasonal to year-round operations, we’re delighted to open these sailings for sale, so guests from all over the southeastern U.S. can start doing some planning of their own for 2025,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.”
Carnival has been operating cruises from Norfolk since 2012 but only on a seasonal basis. In 2023, Carnival Magic will sail a six-month season of four- to 10-day voyages.
Carnival Sunshine will rotate between six- and eight-day sailings to the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean.
