While Carnival Cruise Line’s primary focus is in the Caribbean and Bahamas, here are the cruise ships and itineraries that Carnival will be offering in Europe next year.
Carnival Cruise Line is planning a massive makeover on Carnival Victory that is so huge, the cruise line is renaming the ship Carnival Radiance. Once the $200 million transformation is complete, the ship will sail a handful of cruises in Europe.
Carnival Radiance will sail a series of nine to 12 night cruises out of Barcelona starting on April 29, 2020.
The cruise ship will stop at some of the most popular cruise ports in Europe including Rome, Naples, Malta, Kotor, Dubrovnik, and Marseille.
Mardi Gras will be Carnival Cruise Line’s largest ship ever at 180,000 gross tons. The cruise ship will not only be powered by LNG, but will be the first ship to ever have a roller coaster.
Mardi Gras will offer one nine night cruise to Europe on August 31 that will start in Copenhagen and end in Southampton, England. The cruise will visit ports stops in Germany, Sweden, Amsterdam, Belgium, France, and Norway.
After the nine night cruise, Mardi Gras will sail a Transatlantic cruise to New York and visit the Canary Island and Azores on the way.
Beginning in June 2020, Carnival Legend will be based in Europe for five months sailing nine to 12 night itineraries.
The ship will offer cruises from Barcelona, Spain as well as Venice, Italy. The cruises will visit popular ports in the Mediterranean. Cruises from Venice will last for 12 days and end in Barcelona. The cruises from Barcelona will last for nine nights and end in Venice.
On October 20, 2020, Carnival Legend will head back to the U.S. and begin sailing to the Western Caribbean from Tampa, Florida.
