Carnival Brands Return to Caribbean

By ,   November 6, 2017 ,   Cruise Industry

With the majority of the Caribbean now open for business, cruise line brands from Carnival Corp. begin returning to Grand Turk, Saint Thomas and San Juan.

Most of the about 100 Caribbean destinations have been fully operational since the hurricanes, and FCCA (Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association) reports that almost 90% of the region is open for cruising.

Carnival Corp. brands have operated normal schedules after the September storms, and had to modify itineraries for a handful of destinations. Recovery efforts to restore cruises to the affected destinations led to re-opening of cruise ports in Saint Thomas, Grand Turk and San Juan.
