Carnival Cruise Line has announced more sailings are being added to its popular ‘Carnival Journeys’ program.
The additional longer cruises will begin in 2018 with 13 new 12- to 14-day itineraries which will be departing from the United States along the East and West Coasts and the Gulf of Mexico. The Carnival Journeys sailings will offer even more choice to cruisers with itineraries and experiences which would not usually be available on a regular Carnival cruise.
Christine Duffy, Carnival president, said:
“Our Carnival Journeys cruises have proven enormously popular with guests who enjoy both unforgettable landside experiences and one-of-a-kind onboard enrichment activities that this unique program offers.”
“We’re thrilled to expand Carnival Journeys with these 13 new voyages that showcase some of the world’s most captivating destinations,” she added.
