CCL-Carnival Cruise Line offers twice as many voyages from Norfolk VA in 2023

   March 5, 2023 ,   Cruise Industry

CCL-Carnival Cruise Line announced it is doubling down on voyages from Norfolk VA (Virginia USA) and ramping up for year-round operations beginning in 2025.

The Florida-based cruise line announced in November 2022 that it was doubling its offers from Norfolk this year and lengthening its season from 2 to 6 months per year.

The expansion is the first step toward year-round voyages.

Vacationers see value in the all-inclusive fare, especially when it means not paying for airfare/dealing with flight delays or cancellations that plagued the cruise industry last year.

Carnival has been running trips from Norfolk since 2002, but usually only offers ~8 voyages annually (in May & October).

For 2023, CCL is offering 16 voyages (May through October) with the ship Carnival Magic, including:

  • 5 or 6 days to the Bahamas and back starting at US$449 per person
  • 4 to 6 days to Bermuda and back, starting at US$549 per person
  • 8 days to the Eastern Caribbean, with options including calls in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos, starting at US$639 per person.

The company will pause Norfolk VA operations in 2024 to upgrade the port for its 2025 year-round operations.
