Carnival Revises Ship Itineraries

Carnival Cruise Lines has changed itineraries on its Carnival Destiny and Carnival Holiday. Carnival Victory will replace Carnival Destiny beginning November 2008 and operate year-round seven-day southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan, Carnival Cruise Lines announced Friday. At 2,758 passengers, Carnival Victory is slightly bigger than Carnival Destiny and contains such features as an outdoor movie screen. The ship's first voyage will kick off November 2 and include calls to St. Kitts, Barbados, Dominica and St. Thomas, as well as an overnight stay in the area of La Romana/Casa De Campo. Carnival is currently accepting reservations for the seven-day cruises.

Carnival Holiday, which operates five-day cruises out of Mobile, will forego its Costa Maya call and replace it with a visit to Progreso, beginning September 1. The change is due to the damage caused by Hurricane Dean to Costa Maya's cruise port at Majahual. Visit [www.carnival.com].
