Carnival Valor will reposition to New Orleans to start year-round 4- and 5-day voyages from the Big Easy starting May 2019. It will be the biggest ship to offer year-round short cruise schedule from the port.
Carnival Valor will kick off her new year-round schedule of 4- and 5-day cruises from New Orleans on May 16, 2019, replacing Carnival Triumph and also representing an almost 10% increase in capacity on line's short cruise program from the port.
Carnival Triumph's new homeport will be announced at a later date.
Carnival Glory will take over Carnival Dream's New Orleans-based year-round 4-day schedule, also in May 2019. Together, Carnival Glory and Carnival Valor are expected to carry about 400,000 passengers out of New Orleans.
