Carnival Cruise Line Adds Fourth Ship to Galveston Sailings
Today, Carnival Cruise Line announced it is expanding its offerings in Galveston, Tex., by bringing a fourth ship, Carnival Miracle, to the port that will offer Texas-sized sailings of nine-, 10-, 11- and 12 days beginning in the fall of 2024 through spring 2025. Reservations for these departures are now open for sale.
“We have always offered a great variety of cruises from Galveston, but by adding a fourth Carnival ship to homeport in Galveston and sailing these longer itineraries, we are giving our guests great new choices, especially for those who want to experience a wider variety of beautiful ports of call and more time to enjoy their time at sea,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Galveston is one of our top homeports, and with the arrival of Carnival Jubilee and the new Carnival Miracle itineraries, it will only grow in popularity with our guests."

The 2,200-guest Carnival Miracle recently completed a dry dock where Carnival’s stunning new red, white, and blue livery was added to the ship’s hull. The livery is an homage to the patriotic colors that also represent Carnival, which proudly sails as America’s Cruise Line. Carnival Miracle features many signature venues guests know and love – from Guy’s Burger Joint to the BlueIguana Cantina, the RedFrog and Alchemy bars, and WaterWorks Aqua Park and The Punchliner Comedy Club.
Carnival Miracle will further diversify Carnival’s deployment from Galveston, joining Carnival Breeze, which offers four- and five-day cruises; Carnival Dream, which sails mostly six- and eight-day cruises. And the new Excel-Class Carnival Jubilee features a rollercoaster, which arrives this December to begin week-long Western Caribbean sailings.
