Winter 2023-24: Baltimore to Serve as Homeport for Three Cruise Lines

Carnival ship in Baltimore

Three cruise lines are set to offer cruises departing from Baltimore during the 2023-24 winter season.

Joining Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International, Norwegian Cruise Line is deploying the Norwegian Sun at the homeport for a short program later this year.

After returning to the Maryland Cruise Terminal with the Norwegian Sky in September, the company is set to offer five itineraries departing from Baltimore between November and January.

Another highlight of the program is the Vision of the Seas, which repositioned to Baltimore in May, and is set to spend its first winter season in the port.

Baltimore is also serving as the start point for more varied itineraries, with different cruises sailing from the port to destinations in the Southern Caribbean, the Panama Canal, the Bahamas, Bermuda and more.
