Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Corp.'s flagship line, is once again launching ships with paying passengers from U.S. ports.
Carnival Vista departed the Port of Galveston in Texas Saturday afternoon for a weeklong cruise with stops in Mahogany Bay, Honduras; Cozumel, Mexico; and Belize City, Belize. It’s the first ship from the cruise line to sail from a U.S. port in more than 15 months.
“Having our guests on board again is something we’ve been looking forward to for a very long time," Carnival Vista Captain Andrea Catalani said in a Saturday statement. "Our crew is very excited and will provide them with the incredible Carnival vacation they’ve been so patiently waiting for.”
