Carnival Cruise Line announced today that it is expanding its Galveston, Texas offering by adding a fourth ship, carnival miracle, to the port, which will offer nine-, 10-, 11-, and 12-day, Texas-sized sailings beginning in fall 2024 through spring 2025. Reservations for these departures are now open for sale.
“We’ve always offered a wide variety of cruises from Galveston, but by adding a fourth Carnival ship to our homeport in Galveston and sailing these longer itineraries, we’re offering great new opportunities for our guests, particularly for those who experience greater variety want nice ports of call and more time to enjoy their time at sea,” he said Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line. “Galveston is one of our top homeports and with the arrival of Carnival Jubilee and the new Carnival Miracle itineraries, it’s becoming increasingly popular with our guests.”
Carnival Miracle will relocate from San Francisco to Galveston on October 1, 2024 and will operate a spectacular Carnival Journeys voyage visiting Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Puntarenas, Costa Rica; Cartagena, Colombia; and a transit through the Panama Canal. Once Carnival Miracle arrives in Galveston, she will offer a series of 19 cruises beginning October 16, 2024. Some of the new itineraries now on sale include:

The Carnival Miracle, which can accommodate 2,200 guests, recently completed a dry dock where Carnival’s stunning new red, white and blue livery was applied to the ship’s hull. The livery pays homage to the patriotic colors that also represent Carnival, which proudly sails as America’s Cruise Line. Carnival Miracle offers many signature venues that guests know and love – from Guy’s Burger Joint to BlueIguana Cantina, RedFrog and Alchemy bars, as well as WaterWorks Aqua Park and Punchliner Comedy Club.
Carnival Miracle will continue to diversify Carnival’s operations out of Galveston, joining Carnival Breeze, which offers four- and five-day cruises; Carnival Dream, which operates primarily six and eight day cruises. And the new Excel-Class Carnival Jubilee has a roller coaster arriving this December to begin week-long cruises to the western Caribbean.
