Carnival Cruise Line and Canaveral Port Authority Reach Agreement

Carnival Cruise Line reached an agreement in principle with the Canaveral Port Authority in Florida on a new state-of-the-art terminal able to accommodate its new 163,293 tonne ship, the largest ever constructed for the line, set to debut in 2020.

The terms of the agreement are expected to be included on the agenda of the Canaveral Port Authority Board of Commissioners' meeting on August 29. If approved, the agreement will clear the way for Carnival Cruise Line's plans to homeport the as-yet-unnamed 5,286-lower berth ship at Port Canaveral.

The vessel is set to offer an array of groundbreaking, never-before-seen features and attractions while also being one of the first North American-based cruise ship to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), part of Carnival Corporation's green cruising design platform.
