Carnival Cruise Lines Returns to Norfolk in 2019
2,754-passenger Carnival Triumph will set sail to the Bahamas
NORFOLK, Va. – Carnival Cruise Lines will return to Norfolk in 2019 with the arrival of the Carnival Triumph. The 2,754-passenger vessel will embark on a series of 5 and 6-day sailings to the Bahamas. This marks the return of Carnival after a scheduling issue caused the cruise line to bypass Norfolk in 2018.
“Carnival is a valued and highly respected partner,” said Norfolk Mayor, Kenneth Alexander. “We’re thrilled to welcome the world’s largest cruise line and its many guests back to Norfolk.” Carnival Cruise Lines has sailed out of Norfolk fifteen of the past sixteen years.
In 2019, the 893-foot Carnival Triumph will depart Norfolk for two, 5-Day Bahamas sailings on May 12 and May 17, and a series of 6-Day Bahamas sailings on May 6, October 14, and October 20. Other cruise lines scheduled to make port-of-call visits to Norfolk in 2018 and 2019 include Princess, AIDA Cruises, Silversea Cruises, TUI Cruises, and Windstar Cruises.
