The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) and Carnival Cruise Line have reached an agreement to extend Carnival cruise service from Jacksonville through at least May 2021 and potentially through 2027.

The contract extends the cruise line’s service from Jacksonville for three years with three additional two-year renewal options. The agreement also calls for enhancements to the terminal building and passenger experience.

“We are pleased to continue our longstanding partnership with Carnival into the next decade,” Eric Green, JAXPORT Chief Executive Officer, said.

With the cruise ship Carnival Elation, which will continue offering year-round sailing to the Bahamas from the North Jacksonville Cruise Terminal, Carnival Cruise Line has seen “great demand from the area,” Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, said.

“This agreement ensures we can continue to offer the great value, incredible service and the most fun our guests sailing from Jacksonville have come to expect from Carnival,” Duffy added.

Beginning May 2019, the recently upgraded 2,056-passenger Carnival Ecstasy will assume Carnival Elation’s year-round four- and five-day cruise program.
