Carnival had four cruise ships scheduled to visit Antigua through 2020. Now, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Magic, Carnival Legend, and Carnival Pride will visit an alternative port instead of Antigua.

  1. We have been to the island once or twice. Swimming with the sting rays was a great experience. but if the government doesn’t want the cruise lines, the cruise lines should stay away. I think more and more the cruise lines will continue to build their own destinations in the area. For the cruise line it is a win win, they keep more money in house and passengers are more secure.
