In a year of milestones, including the company's 50th Birthday, CCL-Carnival Cruise Line reached another major mark, welcoming 3 million guests since the restart of passenger operations in July 2021.

After recording the biggest booking week in the line’s 50-year history this spring, the last quarterly Carnival Corp. business update projected Carnival Cruise Line’s vessels to reach ~110% occupancy this summer. The expectation is being realized in the increase of passengers across the fleet.

Carnival saw its total passenger count hit the 2 million mark in May and it has now risen to 3 million in less than 75 days, which is an average of 95,000 passengers per week.

CCL’s 5 busiest homeports - PortMiami FL, Port Canaveral/Orlando FL, Galveston TX, Los Angeles/Long Beach CA, and New Orleans Louisiana, were among the first to restart guest operations and account for ~77% of all embarkations (passenger total 2,324823 million).

Port Canaveral is the homeport for the EXCEL-class flagship Mardi Gras, which is reaching a milestone of her own, welcoming 250,000 passengers onboard since her inaugural sailing.

In terms of the number of cruises, PortMiami leads the way with 215+ voyages to date.

In all, Carnival cruise ships have made 3000+ port-of-call visits at 92 ports in different 36 countries. Carnival liners have called on Mexico the most with ~800 visits, 50% of which have been to Cozumel, making it the company’s most popular port.
