Carnival Cruise Line Announces Brand-New Excel-Class Ship

Share this:

Carnival Cruise Line’s third Excel-class ship – to be named Carnival Jubilee – will be delivered in 2023 and will be based in Galveston, Texas.

Carnival Jubilee will be the third in the Excel-class for Carnival, joining sisters Mardi Gras sailing from Port Canaveral since earlier this year, and Carnival Celebration which will be delivered in late 2022 and based in Miami.

Carnival Jubilee will arrive at 182,800 gross tons, with a capacity of more than 5,400 guests and a 1,700 crew.

She’ll be sailing seven-day western Caribbean itineraries and will include features from her sister ships that guests know and love including the BOLT roller coaster on the top deck, expanded dining options, new designs for suites and staterooms, and a stunning, three-deck atrium on the starboard side of the ship that overlooks the ocean and converts to an entertainment venue at night.

The ship will also have six fun-filled zones like her sisters, two of which will be brand-new concepts to be revealed at a later date. Details on these just-for-Jubilee firsts and other exciting news will be shared over the coming months.

“Carnival was the first cruise line to offer year-round cruising from Galveston in 2000, and we have continued to grow our presence and support of the Port of Galveston’s expansion, so we are thrilled to bring our brand-new Carnival Jubilee to Texas and the greater southwest region,” said Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line.

“This beautiful, innovative ship will bring an entirely new cruise experience to our guests, and we’ve got some great surprises to fun it up in ways we know they are going to love.”

Carnival Jubilee will be open for sale in early 2022, and guests can register to be the “first to know” about the ship’s itineraries and special sale promotions here.
