Carnival Cruise Line has big plans for four different regions. Carnival already offers more cruises to the Caribbean than any other cruise operator. In addition, the Carnival fleet contains more ships than any other cruise fleet on the planet. Some exciting new things are now in the works for the West Coast, Texas, New York and Europe.

Carnival will launch service from San Francisco for the first time with the introduction of Carnival Miracle in 2020. The ship will be used for 10-day and 11-day Alaska cruises during the summer of 2020. In addition, Carnival Miracle is going to be used for special journeys to Hawaii and Ensenada. Cruises from San Diego to Baja California and other destinations in Mexico will be taking place between October of 2021 and April of 2022. However, Carnival customers don't have to wait that long to experience some new options from the cruise line. A new ship called Carnival Panorama will be offering week-long cruises out of California's Long Beach starting on Dec. 14 of this year.

Really big things are happening for Carnival in Texas. The cruise line recently announced that it will be making Galveston the home port for four of its ships by 2021. Carnival Radiance, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Dream and Carnival Vista will be carrying close to 900,000 guests to exciting destinations from Texas annually. Carnival customers are now going to have 235 sailing options to choose from each year.

Carnival Sunrise will begin offering getaways to Bermuda, the Caribbean and the Bahamas from New York beginning in the spring of 2020. Next fall will bring a 12-day journey that includes the Panama Canal. The Carnival Sunrise is actually being used for a variety of itineraries out of Fort Lauderdale from now until the spring.

Carnival Legend will be heading to Europe for some pretty legendary itineraries during the summer and fall of 2020. The European sailings that are available will last between 9 days and 16 days. Travelers will be able to choose trips that cover a total of 34 ports in 14 separate countries. Carnival Legend will make stops in Greece, Croatia, Norway, Ireland, Scotland, Portugal, Iceland, Greenland and more.
