The announcement follows the ACCC’s approval of a new cruise ship terminal in Brisbane. Rated as Australia’s favourite year-round cruise ship by members of Cruise Critic, Carnival Spirit is scheduled to arrive at her new home in 2020.
She will sail year-round from Brisbane to the tropical archipelagos of Vanuatu and New Caledonia, as well as offer shorter cruises to well-loved destinations in North Queensland.
“Queenslanders have embraced Carnival’s free-spirited, family-friendly fun since our arrival in 2012. The new cruise terminal will be able to offer Queenslanders the opportunity to sail on Carnival right from their doorstep,” expressed Jennifer Vandekreeke, vice president, Australia, Carnival Cruise Line.
