Carnival Cruise Line has announced that Carnival Freedom will begin cruises to Alaska from Seattle in 2021.
Carnival Adding Another Ship to Alaska
Carnival Cruise Line is going to increase its presence in Alaska with the Carnival Freedom being based out of Seattle, Washington in 2021. The Conquest-class vessel will join the Carnival Miracle which will operate 10-day and 11-day voyages to Alaska from San Francisco from May 2021.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Alaska is a ‘bucket list’ destination that offers a unique combination of fascinating wildlife and unique cultural and sightseeing opportunities. We’re delighted to provide our guests with even more opportunities to Choose Fun as they experience and explore the beauty and majesty of Alaska.”
Carnival Freedom will sail a total of 21 cruises from the Port of Seattle starting from April 27 to September 22, 2021 which is the Alaska season. The ship will offer seven-day sailings departing every Tuesday and call to Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and Victoria B.C. along with the stunning views of Tracy Arm Fjord. There will also be one similar eight-day voyage from the port.
Before Carnival Freedom begins sailing from Seattle the ship will sail a 17-day repositioning cruise departing Galveston, Texas on April 10, 2021. Following the 2021 summer season in Alaska, the Carnival cruise ship will then shift to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to offer six-day and eight-day eastern and southern Caribbean cruises.
Before the ship arrives in Florida she will sail a 17-day Carnival Journeys Panama Canal cruise from September 22 to October 9, 2021. The sailings will include calls to Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Mexico.
Carnival Freedom is currently based out of the Port of Galveston and is 110,000 gross tons with guest capacity of over 2,900 at double occupancy.
