CHARLESTON — As part of its successful resumption of operations, Carnival Cruise Line has announced that it has resumed service from Charleston, South Carolina with Carnival Sunshine.

“We have been sailing from Charleston for 12 years so we are excited to be back offering guests from all over the southeastern U.S. the opportunity to cruise from this beautiful, historic and charming community, all while providing support to the local economy,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

Carnival currently has 19 ships already in guest operations and its remaining three U.S.-based ships are scheduled to resume in March. It resumed operations in U.S. waters on July 4, 2021 with the Carnival Horizon departing PortMiami.
