INTRODUCING THE NEW SHIP, CARNIVAL JUBILEE
Get ready, something big is coming your way. I’m excited to announce Carnival’s third Excel-class ship is heading to Galveston, Texas in 2023 — Carnival Jubilee! She will be joining sisters Mardi Gras, sailing from Port Canaveral since earlier this year, and Carnival Celebration, sailing out of Miami in late 2022. Being that they were the first cruise line to offer year-round cruising from Galveston in 2000, they are thrilled to continue to grow our presence and support of the Port of Galveston by bringing the brand-new ship, Carnival Jubilee, to Texas and the greater southwest region.
Carnival Jubilee will arrive at 182,800 gross tons, with a capacity of more than 5,400 guests and 1,700 crew, and just like her sister ships, will utilize a liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology platform.
With Carnival’s 50th birthday coming up in 2022, they have resurrected some of the names of previous ships. Although this new Excel-class ship will not be the first Jubilee to sail from Galveston, it will be the biggest. Now, more than 21 years later, this new Carnival Jubilee – four times larger than her predecessor – will make her debut at the port ushering new ways for you to Choose Fun!
There’s so much fun for you to look forward to with onboard activities like Bolt™: The Ultimate Sea Coaster™ on the top deck, expanded dining options, new designs for suites and staterooms, and a stunning, three-deck atrium on the starboard side of the ship that overlooks the ocean and converts to an entertainment venue at night. Like her sister ships, Carnival Jubilee will offer six fun-filled zones, two of which will be brand-new concepts to be revealed at a later date. Details on these just-for-Jubilee firsts and other exciting news will be shared over the coming months — stay tuned!
