CCL-Carnival Cruise Line's ship Carnival Venezia was officially registered on Tuesday, March 28th, with the BMA-Bahamas Maritime Authority, having The Bahamas as flag state and Nassau as port of registry.

During the reflagging ceremony held in Port Cadiz (Spain), the classification society and Venezia’s senior officers completed the necessary registration processes and raised the Bahamian flag to designate the new ship registry.

Christine Duffy (CCL's President) said they were thrilled to celebrate another maritime milestone as Carnival Venezia joined the 7 other ships they had registered in The Bahamas. 

“The BMA is among the most respected administrations in international shipping, and we value their level of cooperation and professionalism aimed to achieve the highest safety standards.”

Carnival Venezia is undergoing a dry dock in Cadiz and is scheduled to depart on her 15-day transatlantic Carnival Journeys trip from Barcelona (Spain) on May 29th, 2023.

The liner is set to begin year-round sailing from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal on June 15th, 2023. A range of sailing options is available, with 10 different durations and 22 itineraries featuring visits to 25 ports across 14 different countries.
