Carnival Cruise Line has signed an agreement with the Bahamian government for the construction of a new cruise port facility, marking the largest purpose-built cruise facility ever constructed in The Bahamas. Features will include a 1-mile stretch of beach, food, beverage and shopping outlets, a wide array of water-based amenities and other recreational facilities. The port will also feature a pier capable of accommodating two of Carnival’s largest cruise ships simultaneously.

In addition, Carnival Cruise Line is now offering guests the opportunity to pre-purchase WiFi packages on carnival.com prior to their cruise. The pre-purchase option is currently available on the Carnival Vista and Carnival Fascination with fleetwide rollout expected by mid-summer.

Guests can select from Carnival’s social, value and premium WiFi packages through the “manage my booking” tab on carnival.com. The social package provides unlimited access to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other popular sites. The value plan includes unlimited access to the web for checking e-mails, sports scores, weather updates and a wide range of other applications, while the premium package provides the fastest available connection speed and allows access to some streaming video services.

Guests must purchase an Internet package that covers the entire duration of their cruise when purchasing online. Daily packages are available for purchase once on board. For more information, call (800) 764-7419 or visit carnival.com.
