In Europe, Carnival Miracle will sail 16 cruises in summer 2025. The 2,124-guest ship will depart from three homeports across Europe: Lisbon, Portugal; Dover (London), U.K. and Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy.

The ship’s first cruise of the season departs Lisbon for Dover, with visits to La Coruna and Bibao, Spain as well as Le Verdon (Bordeaux) and Le Havre (Paris), France.

From Dover, nine sailings are now open, with nine-, 12- and 15-day itineraries available. Spectacular destinations span several regions across Europe, including the British Isles – with ports of call that include Belfast in Northern Ireland and Liverpool in England.

Some sailings highlight destinations in Spain, Portugal and France, and others visit ports of call in Iceland, such as Reykjavik, as well as destinations in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea including Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Copenhagen, Denmark and Helsinki, Finland.

Carnival Miracle will also offer a unique 15-day repositioning itinerary from Dover to Civitavecchia visiting popular destinations across France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Several cruises departing Civitavecchia visit port cities in Italy, Turkey, and Greece. Cruises of eight to 14 days are available. Ports of call from Civitavecchia include Istanbul and Kusadasi (Ephesus) in Turkey; Piraeus (Athens) and Mykonos in Greece and Naples, Italy and Messina on the island of Sicily. The ship’s final cruise from Europe in 2025 will be a 14-day Carnival Journeys voyage from Civitavecchia to Tampa, Fla., with visits to Cartagena, Spain; Ponta Delgada, Azores and Nassau, The Bahamas.

After the ship’s series in Europe, Carnival Miracle will reposition to Tampa and will homeport there for six-, seven- and eight-day cruises in late 2025 and 2026. Destinations across the various itineraries now open from Tampa include Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan; Belize; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Colon, Panama; Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico and many more.

Carnival’s upcoming exclusive destination, which is set to open in the summer of 2025, will be a major feature of many 2025-26 sailings that opened for sale today. Adding 100 more sailings with visits there brings the total number of available itineraries featuring Celebration Key to 500. Now, Celebration Key is set to welcome 18 Carnival ships sailing from nine U.S. homeports.
