Carnival Reshuffles Fleet Capacity

Carnival Triumph cruise ship is set to replace Carnival Elation on Carnival Cruise Line’s  four- and five-day short cruise program from New Orleans next spring.

The move will boost Carnival’s passenger capacity in New Orleans by 34 percent. Carnival Triumph will shift from Galveston to New Orleans to launch year-round four- and five-day cruises to Mexico beginning April 4, 2016.

In turn, Carnival Elation will reposition to Jacksonville, Fla., for year-round four- and five-day cruises. Carnival Elation will assume Carnival Fascination’s schedule from Jacksonville and continue cruising’s only year-round program from that port.

Carnival Fascination will shift to San Juan for year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning in spring 2016.

As previously announced, Carnival Liberty will replace Carnival Triumph on the line’s year-round four- and five- day cruise program from Galveston next spring.

“Repositioning these ships to New Orleans, Jacksonville and San Juan provides our guests and valued travel agent partners with fresh and exciting new ‘Fun Ship’ choices in three important and highly attractive cruise markets,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival’s president.
