Carnival Cruise Line plans to bring a Carnival Sunshine (see video below) to Charleston, South Carolina in May 2019 for a year-round schedule of four- and five-day cruises from the Port of Charleston to the Bahamas with increased passenger capacity for the cruises.
“With its convenient location and strong tourism appeal, Charleston is one of our most popular homeports and we’re delighted to build upon this success with the deployment of Carnival Sunshine,” Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said in a news release.
Currently, Carnival Sunshine is sailing out of Port Canaveral, Florida. Carnival Ecstasy is being relocated from the Port of Charleston to the Port of Jacksonville, Florida in May 2019.
