Carnival Splendor Cruises Into Fort Lauderdale Last Friday

Carnival Cruise Lines’ has brought its newest showcase in cruising, and what it calls the most innovative ship afloat, the 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor, the line’s newest and largest “Fun Ship”, to Fort Lauderdale on Friday for its U.S. debut. It arrived at Port Everglades Friday morning following a 16-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Europe. The travel agent community will have a chance to see it over the next few days before it gets ready to embark on its regularly scheduled Caribbean voyages.

Carnival Splendor will kick off its Fort Lauderdale-based program with a series of three one-time voyages — a two-day cruise to Nassau Nov. 15-17, a four-day Bahamas/Turks & Caicos cruise Nov. 17-21 and an eight-day eastern Caribbean voyage Nov. 21-29.

Then, beginning Nov. 29, the ship will embark on a series of 10 seven-day eastern Caribbean voyages featuring four highly popular ports of call, including Casa de Campo/La Romana, Dominican Republic; St. Thomas/St. John, U.S.V.I.; San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Nassau, The Bahamas.
