(9:45 a.m. EDT) — In response to high demand for Bermuda sailings, Carnival Cruise Line has added to the number and length of calls on King’s Wharf scheduled for 2016.
In 2015, the line has offered only a small handful of voyages to the region aboard Carnival Sunshine, Carnival Pride, Carnival Dream and Carnival Splendor. Next year, between April and November, Sunshine and Pride will return, joined by Carnival Victory and Carnival Ecstasy, to sail a total of 10 Bermuda cruises. The ships will sail from New York/Norfolk, Baltimore, Port Canaveral and Charleston, respectively.
“Normally we operate 2-3 Bermuda cruises a year,” Carnival representative Vance Gulliksen tells Cruise Critic. “They are very popular, so we’ve added additional voyages based on our guests’ requests for more sailings to the island.”
All sailings, ranging in length from five to eight days, include overnights. Five-night cruises offer one night docked in King’s Wharf, seven-night sailings include two nights, and eight-night voyages spend three nights.
Gulliksen says this will be the highest number of Bermuda sailings the line has offered in about a decade.
