Carnival Cruise Line has announced the Carnival Spirit will be calling in Vietnam and Thailand for the first time. The port of calls will be part of a one-time cruise from Sydney Australia in 2018.

The Spirit class ship will set sail on a 19-night cruise departing Sydney on May 3, 2018. The sailing will include calls at Airlie Beach and Darwin in Australia, Bali in Indonesia, as well as the ship’s maiden calls to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam for an overnight stay, and beautiful Ko Samui in Thailand. The ship will then complete the voyage in Singapore on May 22, 2018.

Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Jennifer Vandekreeke said:

“We’re excited to be taking our guests on such a special cruise, with Carnival Cruise Line’s first-ever visits to Ho Chi Minh City and Ko Samui and a fun-filled itinerary packed with new experiences both on and off the ship.”

From Singapore, the Carnival Spirit is offering the Carnival Journeys experience where guests can get more inspired in the destinations and onboard.

The 88,500 gross ton vessel will undergo a major refurbishment when it arrives in Singapore in May 2018. Once complete the ship will sail out of Shanghai, China before heading back to Australia towards the end of 2018.

Bookings are now open for the 19-night voyage starting at $2,449 per person twin share. Cruise Hive readers can take a look at the very best cruise deals at our dedicated Carnival price drop page.
