The new contract extends the cruise line’s service from Jacksonville for three years with three additional two-year renewal options. The agreement also calls for enhancements to the terminal building and passenger experience.
With the cruise ship ‘Carnival Elation’, which will continue to offer year-round sailings to the Bahamas from the North Jacksonville Cruise Terminal, Carnival Cruise Line has seen “great demand from the area,” Christine Duffy, Carnival Cruise Line President, said.
“This agreement ensures we can continue to offer the great value, incredible service and the most fun our guests sailing from Jacksonville have come to expect from Carnival,” Duffy added.
Beginning May, 2019, the recently upgraded 2,056 pax ‘Carnival Ecstasy’ will assume ‘Carnival Elation’s’ year-round four- and five-day cruise programme.
