Bookings have opened for Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship Carnival Celebration to enter service in 2022.

The vessel will make its debut with a 14-day transatlantic crossing from Southampton on November 6, arriving in Miami on November 20.

The 5,374-passenger capacity ship set to enter service as part of the company’s 50th anniversary celebrations which kick-off in March 2022.

The inaugural two-week sailing from Southampton will include calls at La Coruna, Vigo, Funchal in Maderia and Tenerife.

Carnival Celebration, a sister to the line’s first XL-class ship Mardi Gras, will then run year-round Caribbean sailings from Miami.

The new-build will match Mardi Gras with six themed zones and be the second ship to feature on board rollercoaster, Bolt.

The addition of Carnival Celebration will maintain Miami’s position as the top embarkation port for Carnival Cruise Line.

Carnival Cruise Line president Christine Duffy said: “Carnival Celebration promises to be a spectacular addition to our fleet – just in time for our 50th birthday – and we’ve put together a terrific array of itineraries kicking off with a two-week-long inaugural transatlantic cruise and then year-round Caribbean sailings from PortMiami featuring some of the most beautiful and popular destinations in the region.”
