MIAMI, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With Carnival Dream and Carnival Glory resuming guest operations on Sept. 19, Carnival Cruise Line now has 11 ships - representing half of its U.S. fleet - sailing again.
Beginning with its return to guest operations on July 3 with Carnival Vista, the line is operating from seven U.S. homeports including Miami, Galveston, Seattle, Port Canaveral, Long Beach, Baltimore and New Orleans, providing guests with a wide range of options to get Back to Fun.
"Having half of our U.S. fleet back in operations provides positive economic impact in our homeports and port of call destinations, along with giving our guests their much-needed vacations and helping our crew support their families back home," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. "We couldn't have accomplished this without the support of our travel advisor partners, business partners and port and destinations partners."
Carnival Dream became the third Carnival ship to operate year-round from Galveston when it departed this weekend on a six-day Caribbean cruise, while Carnival Glory is the first ship to set sail from the Port of New Orleans, operating a seven-day voyage to The Bahamas.
With 11 ships already in guest operations, including the introduction of Carnival's newest and most innovative ship, Mardi Gras, additional vessels will resume service throughout the fall and into early 2022 as the line's successful restart of operations continues.
