Carnival cruise line adds more passengers to short term cruises

Carnival Cruise Line will raise the number of cabins devoted to short cruises out of Galveston and New Orleans in 2019.

Carnival Cruise Line has said that for 2019, they will raise the number of cabins devoted to short cruises out of New Orleans and Galveston, which includes stops on Cozumel.

Carnival Valor will increase its current 2,974 passenger capacity by 10 percent, while the 3,646 passenger Carnival Dream will increase capacity by 22 percent. The increase in passenger capacity will apply to the line’s four and five-day itineraries.

Carnival Dream ship out of Galveston will replace the Valor and join Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista for the fall of 2018. The Valor will be re-positioned to New Orleans to replace the Carnival Triumph.

Of these increases, the four-day cruise that departs Thursdays will visit the island of Cozumel, bringing with it an additional 200 passengers. The five-day voyages that leave Mondays and Saturdays will also see a passenger increase when they stop at Cozumel and Progresso, with some docking at Costa Maya.
