Carnival Cruise Lines will launch a year-round cruise program in Baltimore next year, as the 2,124-passenger Carnival Pride will operate seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning September 13, 2009.

The ship will operate two distinct seven-day itineraries, an exotic Eastern Caribbean itinerary visiting Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos; the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay; and Freeport, the Bahamas; while Bahamas/Florida departures visit Port Canaveral, FL and Nassau and Freeport, the Bahamas.

"Today’s consumers are more value-conscious than ever and considering that Baltimore is within a day’s drive for millions of Northeastern U.S. residents, these new seven-day voyages provide a convenient and affordable vacation option," said Gerry Cahill, Carnival’s president and CEO.

"Year-round cruising will allow the 40 million people that live within a six-hour drive of Baltimore to look beyond the traditional cruising seasons and sail throughout the year," said Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.
