Carnival to send larger ship to Puerto Rico

By Donna Tunney
Carnival Cruise Lines said it will increase capacity next winter from San Juan and Miami, and send the Carnival Destiny to Europe.

The 2,974-passenger Carnival Valor will operate seven-day Southern Caribbean sailings from San Juan starting Feb. 10, 2013.

The ship will replace the 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory, which will reposition from San Juan to Miami to assume the Carnival Destiny’s four- and five-day cruises beginning Feb. 4, 2013.

The 2,642-passenger Carnival Destiny will begin its Europe deployment with a 16-day transatlantic crossing departing Miami on Feb. 4 and arriving in Civitavecchia, Italy, on Feb. 20. Details on the Destiny’s deployment following the transatlantic crossing will be announced soon, Carnival said.

Carnival earlier this week said that the 2,124-passenger Carnival Legend will operate in Europe next year, offering Norwegian fjords, Baltics and British Isles cruises, along with a six-month series of sailings between Barcelona and Venice. No other 2013 Europe deployments have been announced yet by the line.

The Carnival Valor’s seven-day itinerary will call at St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Maarten.

The Carnival Victory will offer three itineraries from Miami. Four-day cruises will call at Key West and Cozumel. Five-day cruises will visit Turks & Caicos, Half Moon Cay and Nassau, or Grand Cayman and Jamaica.
