Jamaica's Port Authority gave statistics about the frequency of visitors since the nation reopened to cruises: from August 2021 until now a total of 16237 passengers visited the island across 10 different ship calls.

Carnival Glory's visit to Montego Bay is one of the call ports scheduled on the 14-day Panama Canal cruise, which departed New Orleans (Port NOLA, Louisiana) on November 28. The rest of the cruise ports include Willemstad (Curacao Island, Dutch Antilles), Oranjestad (Aruba Island, Dutch Antilles), Puerto Limon (Costa Rica), Mahogany Bay (Roatan Island, Honduras), and Cozumel (Mexico).

With Carnival Glory, which restarted sailings on September 19 after the long pause, the cruise company involved more than 50% of the fleet in the service, with more liners to follow from the middle of December.

CCL makes plans to bring back its entire fleet in operation by March 2022.
