After 25 years of sailing from Port Tampa Bay, Carnival Cruise Line is expanding its offerings from the Central Florida port with the addition of a second year-round ship: Carnival Miracle.
The 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle launched its year-round program of 7-day cruises to the Caribbean last weekend. The weeklong cruises depart on Saturdays or Sundays with port calls in Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay (Roatan), and Belize. The ship is joining Carnival Paradise, which also operates year-round and offers 4- to 8-day voyages from Tampa to the Caribbean, including calls in Cuba. In addition to the 7-day journeys, Carnival Miracle will also sail on new 6- to 14-day cruises through the Caribbean with some itineraries including partial transit of the Panama Canal.
Carnival Miracle’s year-round 7-day journeys, as well as its new, longer itineraries, doubles Carnival’s capacity at Port Tampa Bay. Carnival Miracle and Carnival Paradise are expected to carry an estimated 280,000 passengers annually from Tampa.
