Carnival Pride at Freeport, Bahamas

It’s great to see that Carnival Cruise Line has now resumed regular calls to Hurricane hit Freeport on Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas. To follow-up on previous news of returning to the port, the Miami-based cruise line released a batch of photos when the Carnival Pride became the first in the fleet to return to the port as part of regular visits.

The Spirit-class vessel called at the Freeport Habour on Friday, October 11 with almost 2,400 guests onboard. Passengers had the chance to enjoy their time ashore and being able to spend their money to help the economy recover is always a good thing. Many shore excursions were also available but with the island recovering after the category 5, Hurricane Dorian struck in early September not everything is open.

The Carnival Elation become the second ship in the fleet to return on October 13 and Carnival Freedom will be returning on October 15. More vessels will call at Freeport too which is great news for the island nation.

Carnival expects to make 39 calls to Freeport until the end of the year which will bring over 10,000 cruise visitors to the island. For the entire year, the cruise line will end up bringing 400,000 cruise passengers to Grand Bahama Island aboard 10 ships from nine different U.S. homeports.
