Share this:

Carnival Cruise Line opened for sale approximately 400 cruises that will bring guests to Celebration Key™, its new exclusive cruise port destination in The Bahamas.

First calls will begin in July 2025, and agents can now book cruises on the first 12 Carnival ships, sailing regularly from eight homeports, visiting Celebration Key in 2025 and 2026.

Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy, said: “As the first port destination exclusively designed for Carnival Cruise Line guests, Celebration Key will provide the ultimate Carnival fun in the sun, immersed in the natural beauty of Grand Bahama.

“Our guests have a wide range of ships, homeports and itineraries that visit our new exclusive destination to choose from.

“And we’ve seen that there is a lot of interest in Celebration Key as thousands of Carnival guests signed up over the last week to be the first to know about the itineraries and features.

“The July 2025 opening will be here before we know it, and we are working closely with the Bahamian Government and the local Grand Bahama community to make this the premier exclusive cruise port destination in the Caribbean.

“We plan to announce further details on what guests can expect to experience while there in the near future.”

Located on the south side of Grand Bahama Island, Celebration Key offers a mile-long white sandy beach, authentic Bahamian shopping and dining, and excursions to explore the beautiful island of Grand Bahama.

The destination’s features and offerings will be anchored around the largest freshwater lagoons in the Caribbean that will offer numerous recreational and leisure activities.

Carnival ships will dock at an adjacent cruise pier that can accommodate up to two of Carnival’s Excel-class vessels simultaneously and will allow guests direct access to Celebration Key.
