Carnival Sunshine itinerary map/ports
The CCL Sunshine cruise ship itself is a most exceptional event. The old Carnival Destiny ship (built 1996) was extensively refitted and refurbished in Europe (Italy) to become a brand new Carnival “Fun Ship” in 2013 under the sunny and shiny name “Carnival Sunshine”.
After a huge 7-month package of exclusively Mediterranean cruise itineraries (with departures from Venice and Barcelona), Sunshine was relocated from Europe to Caribbean. After the Transatlantic crossing, the Sunshine cruise ship sailing calendar offers 7-day Western and Eastern Caribbean (Florida-Bahamas) cruises departing from New Orleans. Since April 2014, Sunshine will be again relocated – this time changing her port of departure from NOLA to Port Canaveral (Orlando) Florida.
- New Orleans Louisiana
- Port Canaveral Florida.
List of destinations, countries and ports of call:
- Florida-Bahamas ports: Nassau (on New Providence Island), Freeport (on Grand Bahama Island), Florida (calling on Key West).
