Everything is bigger in Texas – including Carnival Cruise Line – which announced it will have four ships homeported in Galveston, year-round, beginning in 2021.
Building on its position as the number one cruise line from Texas, Carnival officials said that Carnival Radiance will join the Galveston-based fleet in May 2021. In addition, Carnival Breeze will return to Galveston from Port Canaveral, becoming the newest and largest ship to operate a short cruise program from Galveston. Carnival Dream will shift to six- and eight-day Caribbean voyages while Carnival Vista will continue its popular week-long Caribbean cruises.
All Galveston-based ships and itineraries are open for sale.
With these four ships, Carnival will carry an estimated 900,000 guests annually from Galveston – more than any other cruise operator – on 235 five- to 14-day sailings a year.
