Carnival Cruise Line is going to increase sailings to Bermuda during 2016 in a quest to offer more choice to passengers. The increased offerings will include 10 departures that feature at least one overnight docked alongside at historic King’s Wharf.
“By offering Bermuda cruises from a variety of convenient drive-to homeports, we’re providing guests even more opportunities to experience and explore this incredible island paradise,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president.
For those of you waiting for a chance to book a cruise to Bermuda then 2016 might just be the year to do so. Five Carnival ships will be sailing to the well-known destination from April through to November, 2016. The cruises will all sail from American homeports offering five to seven-day voyages.
