Carnival Cruise Lines, the operator of the Carnival Cruise Line, has announced it will resume operations on April 15, 2019.
In addition, the company will add a second cruise to its schedule, a cruise that will begin on April 19, 2019 and run until May 4, 2019 at a price of $250,000.
The new cruise will begin in the Bahamas with a stop at Paradise Island and will then depart to San Francisco for a stop in Costa Rica, and then to Bermuda for a cruise on May 15, 2021.
This second cruise will be the first since the company shut down its Carnival CruiseLine in 2019 due to the global financial crisis.
Carnival said it plans to offer additional service on its first cruise from Bermuda to New York City, which was canceled in November 2020 due to Hurricane Irma.
“Carnivals first cruise ship to return to its former capacity in 2019 was the Carnival Princess, which left New York Harbor in April 2019 and returned to her former capacity on May 3, 2019,” the company said in a statement.
New York, New Jersey, and Florida are scheduled to host the second cruise on April 22, 2019, while the rest of the country will host the first cruise on August 11, 2019 with a scheduled stop in Miami, Florida.
Boeing also announced that it will begin serving the second passenger cruise from the Caribbean, scheduled to begin in mid-May 2019, with a service stop in the Caribbean island of Barbados.
At the time of the cancellation, the cruise line reported that it had added another 714,000 seats to its cruise fleet.
On Tuesday, Carnival announced that the Carnival Grand Cruises in the Gulf of Mexico, which departed from Port Canaveral, Florida, in January 2018, would return to service by April 1.
Additionally, the U.S. Coast Guard said that the Coast Guard would conduct a two-day inspection of the hull of the first-ever, first-class cruise ship, the Carnival Regent, in March 2019, in the wake of Hurricane Irma’s catastrophic impact on the region.
Also in 2019, Carnival plans to launch the first U.N.-sanctioned cruise, a first-generation class of the company’s flagship, the Regent Class.
That vessel will depart from Port Royal, Louisiana, and travel to New Orleans on April 18, 2019 for a one-night stop in New Orleans.
Following the completion of the inspection, Carnival will begin a one day inspection of that vessel, which is scheduled to depart on April 26, 2019 in New York, the Caribbean and Bermuda, and will return to Port Royal on May 4 and 5, 2019 respectively.
Next year, Carnival intends to launch a class of its flagship, Carnival Regal, that will depart in 2018 from Miami, and begin its first day of service in 2019 at New York’s JFK airport.
As part of Carnival’s plan to re-open in 2020, the United Kingdom announced that Carnival would resume operations for the first time since 2019.
