Carnival Cruise Line said its Carnival Elation will offer a unique itinerary next spring that includes cruising to Bermuda and the Bahamas from Jacksonville, Fla.

The Elation typically does three-, four- and five-day cruises to the Bahamas.

The eight-day voyage will operate round-trip from Jacksonville April 7 and will include an overnight call in Heritage Wharf, Bermuda, as well as an extended stay at the private Bahamian island Half Moon Cay.

Carnival said that with this itinerary Jacksonville becomes the sixth port to offer a Carnival cruise to Bermuda; the others are New York; Baltimore; Charleston, S.C.; and Port Canaveral and Fort Lauderdale in Florida.
