CCL-Carnival Cruise Line’s newest flagship Carnival Celebration kicked off her first-ever sailing to the Caribbean. 

The 6000-passenger vessel made its first call at Grand Turk Island on a Thanksgiving-week voyage. 

That was followed by calls at Amber Cove (Dominicana) and Nassau (Bahamas)

Christine Duffy (CCL's President) said it was an honor to bring their new flagship to Grand Turk as its first Caribbean port of call and welcome guests to experience the beauty of the island.

“Grand Turk is a popular destination with our guests and I’m looking forward to Carnival Celebration making many memorable visits going forward.”

The new Carnival Celebration has 18 decks, 2641 staterooms, 20 dining venues, and will operate alternating itineraries across the Eastern and Western Caribbean. 

The boat's debut helps CCL to mark the company's 50th anniversary. 

That will include visits to destinations like Amber Cove, Grand Turk, Nassau, San Juan Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, and St Thomas USVI in the Eastern Caribbean and Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Mahogany Bay Jamaica in the Western Caribbean.
