Carnival Cruise Line to add fourth ship in Galveston starting fall 2024

MIAMI — Carnival Cruise Line is ramping up its offerings in Galveston, Texas by bringing a fourth ship, Carnival Miracle, to the port starting next fall.

The ship will reposition from San Francisco to Galveston on Oct. 1, 2024 and operate a Carnival Journeys voyage that visits Cabo San Lucas, Puntarenas, Cartagena and a Panama Canal transit. Once in Galveston, it will offer a series of 19 nine-, 10- 11- and 12-day cruises beginning on Oct. 16, 2024 and running through spring 2025.

Reservations are now open for sale.

“We have always offered a great variety of cruises from Galveston, but by adding a fourth Carnival ship to homeport in Galveston and sailing these longer itineraries, we are giving our guests great new choices, especially for those who want to experience a wider variety of beautiful ports of call and more time to enjoy their time at sea,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Galveston is one of our top homeports, and with the arrival of Carnival Jubilee and the new Carnival Miracle itineraries, it will only grow in popularity with our guests.”

The 2,200-guest Carnival Miracle recently completed a dry dock during which Carnival’s new red, white and blue livery was added to the ship’s hull. Onboard guests will find many of Carnival’s signature venues include Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, the RedFrog and Alchemy bars, as well as WaterWorks Aqua Park and the Punchliner Comedy Club. 

In Galveston, Carnival Miracle will join Carnival Breeze, which offers four- and five-day cruises; Carnival Dream, which sails mostly six- and eight-day cruises; and the new Excel-Class Carnival Jubilee featuring a rollercoaster, which arrives this December to begin week-long Western Caribbean sailings.
