Each Friday I bring you what is new in cruising for the week. This week, Royal Caribbean, Carnival and American Cruise Lines.
Wonder of the Seas to Port Canaveral
This week Royal Caribbean did some redeployment moves with their Oasis class ships. the brand new Wonder of the Seas was intended to be in China in the winter of 2022/2023 but instead will sail from Port Canaveral. She will sail 7 night cruises alternating between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
Carnival Conquest Returns and Radiance Launches
This week marked the return of the Carnival Conquest after 21 months of a shut down. Conquest sails from Miami on 3 & 4 Night Bahamas Itineraries.
Carnival Radiance, formally, Carnival Victory, sailed from Long Beach on a 4 Night Baja Cruise. Radiance went through a $200 million renovation transitioning into the Radiance. This is the third ship in the class to transition to a new name, Carnival Destiny became Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Triumph became Carnival Sunrise. Radiance will sail 3 & 4 Night Baja itineraries from Long Beach, CA year round visiting Catalina Island, CA and Ensenada Mexico.

American Cruise Line Celebrates Success
American Cruise Line is celebrating great success in 2021. American was the first cruise line to return to service in March of 2021, first on the Mississippi River and now in over 30 states. The 2022 Season will begin in March and feature new more modern paddle wheelers along with the renovations of current ships. Another reason for celebration is the contribution they make to local food banks in Connecticut where they are based. This year they have raised and contributed enough money for more than 20,000 meals.
American Cruise Line features river cruises on rivers like the Mississippi and the Ohio and offers coastal cruises in Maine, the south and Alaska. For more info on American Cruise Line, check out a previous Blog Post.

I have a passion for travel and believe travel is about experiences. Experiences create memories and are the stories we tell to friends and family - even with a little fudging on the facts.
