Carnival is shuffling their decks, so to speak with some new ship deployments.
The following is edited from a press release I received issued by Carnival on June 27[SUP]th[/SUP].


Carnival Sunshine will be repositioned from New Orleans to Port Canaveral to operate year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning April 19, 2014. A new special 11-day cruise from New Orleans to Port Canaveral, visiting Montego Bay, Aruba, Curacao and St. Thomas will depart April 6, 2014. On April, 17, 2014, a one-time two-day Bahamas cruise will also be offered.
Carnival Sunshine will operate a year-round schedule from Port Canaveral that includes port-intensive seven-day cruises to the eastern and western Caribbean, along with a number of eight-day Caribbean cruises and five-day departures featuring Florida, Caribbean and Bahamian ports.

Carnival Dream will reposition from Port Canaveral to New Orleans to operate year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises. There will also be a unique nine-day cruise departing April 5, 2014, from Port Canaveral to New Orleans with calls in Aruba, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, along with a special six-day cruise round-trip from New Orleans departing April 14, 2014, visiting Costa Maya, Roatan and Cozumel. On its regular schedule from the New Orleans, Carnival Dream will offer three distinctly different three-port, seven-day eastern and western Caribbean options.

Carnival Liberty launches year-round five- to eight-day Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral beginning May 4, 2014. Five-day cruises call at Key West, Nassau and Freeport, while two different eight-day options will be offered – a unique eastern Caribbean itinerary featuring Grand Turk, St. Thomas, Tortola, and St. Maarten; and a southern Caribbean program visiting Aruba, Curacao and Grand Turk. A number of seven-day eastern and western Caribbean cruises will also be offered on an occasional basis throughout the year.

Carnival Pride will reposition from Baltimore to Tampa to launch seven-day cruises from December 2014 through April 2015. On its new Tampa-based program, Carnival Pride will replace Carnival Legend visiting four magnificent Western Caribbean destinations: Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Mahogany Bay (Roatan) and Belize. A special five-day cruise will be available on Carnival Pride departing Dec. 16, 2014, visiting Grand Cayman and Cozumel. There will also be unique eight-day one-way cruises available from Baltimore to San Juan on Nov. 30, 2014, and from San Juan to Tampa on Dec. 8, 2014. These voyages include visits to Grand Turk, St. Kitts, St. Thomas and St. Maarten.

Carnival Glory will remain in Miami year-round beginning in November 2013, operating seven-day voyages that alternate weekly to the eastern and western Caribbean with a convenient new Saturday departure. Eastern Caribbean cruises visit St. Thomas, San Juan, Grand Turk and Nassau or Half Moon Cay, while western Caribbean departures feature Cozumel, Mahogany Bay (Roatan), Belize and Grand Cayman.

Sorry to see the Pride leave Baltimore, but happy to see the Sunshine and Liberty move to Port Canaveral. I'm sure we will be doing a combo Orlando vacation and cruise in the next couple of years.

Well... you should drop by next time you're in town, Jeff. I'd love to see you and your crew again! :beach:
