Carnival Cruise Line will begin sailing out of San Juan, Puerto Rico from October 15th with the Carnival Fascination.

The cruise lines are starting to get back on track after Hurricane Irma and Maria both hit in September and caused devastation across popular cruise destinations in the Eastern Caribbean. Carnival which was among the most impacted cruise line due to the Hurricanes is finally making a return with cruises out of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Carnival Cruise Line stated the following:

We have been working very closely with our partners in San Juan over the last couple of weeks, and based on the assessment of our terminal facilities, support services and local conditions, we are happy to announce that we will be returning to San Juan to resume cruises to the Southern Caribbean, effective with Carnival Fascination’s October 15 sailing. Our team’s visit this past week confirmed the Old San Juan area is ready to receive tourists. Many shops and businesses have returned to their normal business operations with more opening up every day.

Like you, we were saddened to see the impact the recent storm had on Puerto Rico. Tourism is very important to their economy, and with your help, we are pleased to play an important role in aiding their recovery efforts in a meaningful way.

Carnival Fascination will make a return to the port in San Juan with its first cruise departing on October 15th. A team from the cruise line has been in San Juan assessing the situation to make sure guests can have a great shore experience. We also posted about the terminal building which Carnival uses was damaged from Hurricane Maria but everything now seems to be fixed and sorted out.
