Carnival Cruise Line’s new Carnival Celebration arrived in Grand Turk today, making the ship’s first call to a Caribbean port, according to a press release.
The ship is currently on its inaugural voyage following its Sunday naming in Miami as the vessel is on a special six-day Thanksgiving cruise.
“It is an honor to bring our new flagship to Grand Turk as its first Caribbean port of call and welcome our guests to experience the beauty of the island,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Grand Turk is a popular destination with our guests and I’m looking forward to Carnival Celebration making many memorable visits going forward.”
After the visit to Grand Turk, the Carnival Celebration will continue its journey with a visit to Amber Cove on Thanksgiving Day and then stop in Nassau on Friday before spending Saturday at sea and returning to Miami on Sunday.
On Sunday, the ship’s second cruise from Miami kicks off alternating week-long Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings. Eastern Caribbean itineraries include stops in various destinations, including Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, Amber Cove and Nassau. Western Caribbean cruises visit Cozumel, Costa Maya and Mahogany Bay.
