A Carnival cruise ship has departed from Barcelona, Spain and is now heading to the US for the first time.
Carnival Venezia was recently transferred to Carnival Cruise Line from Costa Cruises. After spending some time in dry dock and being converted into a Carnival Fun Ship, the ship is now on its way to New York City.
Carnival Venezia left Barcelona on Sunday and is now on a two-week transatlantic voyage and is scheduled to arrive in New York City on June 13. Once in New York, the ship will spend the next year making various trips from the Northeast.
The ship’s first trip from New York, a four-day trip to Bermuda, is scheduled for June 15, 2023. The ship will operate 10 different trips and 22 special trips with 25 stops in 14 countries from the Big Apple. . Check Prices on Cruises on Carnival Venezia
“Following a major expansion, Carnival Venezia looks and feels like part of the Carnival family – with an Italian theme and unique flair that I know our guests will appreciate,” said Duffy. “I’m looking forward to experiencing some ‘Carnival Fun Italian Style’ with our first guests and can’t wait to welcome the train to New York.”
Carnival Venezia is the first cruise ship to introduce “Carnival Fun Italian Style.” Various entertainment programs, such as the special Captain’s Venetian Toast and the Italian street party on the Lido are designed to enhance the guests’ experience with Italian ship themes.
The cruise also brings a number of new food and drink options, including a special restaurant, “Il Viaggio,” which promises a culinary journey of the best regional food and drink from several regions in Italy.
Along with the new concept, Carnival Venezia also has many of the Carnival essentials that guests know and love, including Guy Fieri’s Guy’s Burger Joint, steakhouse Fahrenheit 555, Bonsai Sushi & Teppanyaki and the Chef’s Table, along with Piano Bar 88 and the Heroes Tribute Lounge.
Much of the ship’s central design serves as a tribute to the city of Venice, Italy, which inspired new ideas and programs.
