Three Carnival Cruise Line ships are on the move this week, on repositioning cruises that will cross both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, as they cruise into position for new seasons in Alaska and Europe.
Carnival Luminosa left Brisbane, Australia for a three-week sea journey to Seattle for the upcoming start of her Alaska season. Carnival Pride is departing Tampa on a transatlantic cruise to Europe and, this weekend, Carnival Spirit will sail from Miami to Seattle for its season of Alaska voyages.
After a victorious inaugural season in Brisbane, Australia the Luminosa is embarking on a 23-day transpacific sailing, visiting destinations along the way such as New Caledonia and Fiji, before crossing the International Dateline and visiting Tahiti and Hawaii, then docking at the Port of Seattle May 4 for the start of her 2023 Alaska season. Her arrival in Seattle will mark the Luminosa’s first time sailing in U.S. waters since joining the fleet in November 2022.
On Sunday, Carnival Spirit will depart Miami for a 16-day cruise to Seattle. She’ll arrive just ahead of the Luminosa, on May 2, to begin operating in Alaska. Along the way, guests will stop in destinations such as Santa Marta and Cartagena, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and they will also cruise through the Panama Canal.
From Seattle, Carnival Luminosa and Carnival Spirit will each sail a four-month Alaska schedule, along with sister ship Carnival Miracle, which departs from San Francisco. The ships will sail a total of 49 Alaskan cruises, ranging from six- to fourteen-day sailings.
After completing the upcoming Alaska season, Carnival Luminosa and Carnival Spirit will operate additional Carnival Journeys sailings, with Carnival Luminosa sailing a 30-day transpacific voyage back to Brisbane, Australia.
Next year, when Carnival Luminosa returns to Seattle for the 2024 Alaska season, the ship will operate one of Carnival’s longest-ever cruises. The 31-day journey will depart on April 1, 2024, and visit several exotic destinations, including Guam and Hiroshima, and Yokohama, Japan.
Carnival Spirit will conclude its Alaska season by embarking on a 16-day sailing to New Orleans, again cruising through the Panama Canal, before repositioning to her new homeport of Mobile, Alabama on October 6. Next year, the Spirit will return for Alaska season on a similar voyage that departs on April 7, 2024, cruises through the Panama Canal and features a stop in destinations such as Cartagena, Colombia, and Costa Rica.
Carnival Pride is embarking on a 13-day transatlantic sailing from Tampa to Barcelona, Spain. During the sailing, guests will visit Ponta Delgada in the Azores, as well as Malaga and Valencia, Spain.
The Pride will sail a series of 15 European cruises from May 28 through October 28. The upcoming season features various cruise lengths and itineraries with departures from Dover, UK; Barcelona, Spain; and Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy. Carnival Pride concludes its European season with a 15-day transatlantic voyage back to the U.S. that departs on Oct. 28.
