Carnival Cruise Line opens sales 29SEP for nearly 400 cruises on 12 ships sailing from eight homeports to its new private resort destination, Celebration Key, on Grand Bahama Island in The Bahamas, in 2025 and 2026.

Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy said, "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... We plan to announce further details on what guests can expect to experience while there in the near future."

Promising guests "a key to paradise no matter how they define it," there will be "endless ways to enjoy the destination," including beaches, Bahamian shopping and dining, or excursions to explore Grand Bahama. The destination's features include recreational and leisure activities for families and adults.

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.
