Carnival Cruise Ship Celebrates Inaugural Call in Portland, Maine

Carnival Sunshine celebrated its inaugural call in Portland, Maine during a seven night cruise to New England and Canada from New York City.

A special first-call reception was held that included a traditional maritime plaque exchange between the port officials and the ship’s officers. Also, several lobsters were presented that were expertly prepared for the team that evening as part of a special dinner.


Carnival Sunshine is spending a season sailing out of New York City before repositioning to Port Canaveral. Once in Florida, the cruise ship will spend the winter months sailing to the Caribbean.  Originally Carnival Destiny, it was the first cruise ship in the world to cross the 100,000 gross ton mark.  The ship underwent an extensive renovation in 2013 and was renamed Carnival Sunshine.
