Carnival Cruise Line returned to the Port of Baltimore and launched a year-round cruise program yesterday when the Carnival Pride departed on a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas from the Cruise Maryland Terminal. Carnival Pride will have a wide range of departures, from five-day Bermuda cruises to seven- to 14-day voyages visiting top destinations in the Caribbean, The Bahamas and Florida.
“We are thrilled to be returning to the Port of Baltimore which is such a fantastic cruise departure point for people in the mid-Atlantic states, the Northeast and beyond,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival president. “Carnival Pride has just undergone a massive enhancement program that added a variety of great new features which, when combined with the wide range of itinerary options, makes the ship an excellent vacation choice for consumers and a great selling opportunity for our valued travel agent partners,” she added.
Carnival Pride’s five-day Bermuda sailings feature two days and one night at King’s Wharf with two fun days at sea. Six-day Bahamas cruises call at the popular ports of Nassau and Freeport, while the seven-day Bahamas itinerary also includes a call at Port Canaveral, Fla., with easy access to Orlando’s attractions.
Seven- and eight-day eastern Caribbean cruises feature Grand Turk, the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay, and Freeport. Eight-day Bahamas sailings visit Charleston, S.C.; Port Canaveral and Nassau.
For those who prefer more immersive, longer length cruises, Carnival Pride offers two Carnival Journeys adventures departing from Baltimore. An 11-day Carnival Journeys voyage departs Baltimore Jan. 17, 2016, calling at Grand Turk, Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, and St. Croix, ending in San Juan Jan. 28, 2016.
There is also a 14-day Carnival Journeys voyage, operating roundtrip from Baltimore March 13-27, 2016, and featuring Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, Dominica, St. Lucia, Martinique, Antigua and St. Maarten.
