35-Day Caribbean Cruise Departing in December Sold Out!

A 35-day Caribbean cruise offered by TUI Cruises and departing in December has already sold out!

The busiest cruise port in the world will be having Carnival’s largest ever cruise ship sail from PortMiami for at least 24 months sometime after it makes it’s debut in 2016.

The 133,500 gross ton vessel is apparently part of an extended lease between the cruise line and Miami Dade’s PortMiami to not only guarantee the Carnival Vista but to also offer a partnership to benefit both parties. The extension will continue through to September 30th, 2028 along with an option for Carnival to stay there until 2035. By then the cruise industry will probably look very different from now with even larger ships from Carnival and it’s sister cruise lines.

You can read the full lease agreement right here.

Also as part of the agreement the Miami Dade county and PortMiami will invest no more than $10 Million dollars in upgrading Carnivals cruise terminals. The improvements will include terminals D and E. The two organisations share a long history for over 43 years since 1972 when Carnival first began with it;s very first vessel the Mardi Gras.

Miami will be able to benefit from the large amount of passengers that will be cruising on Carnival ships from the city. There is expected to be over 1.5 Million passengers moves which could bring in $24 Million in 2015 and $37 Million in 2028.

The Carnival Vista is currently under construction at the Finacntieri shipyard in Trieste, Italy. Before coming to Miami it will sail a set of  inaugural cruises in Europe
