Carnival Miracle to sail from New York City year around starting in April 2012

From Travel Weekly

Carnival Cruise Lines will have a year-round presence in New York for the first time, starting in April 2012.

The 2,100-passenger Carnival Miracle will sail eight-day cruises to the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Eastern Caribbean departures to San Juan, St. Thomas and Grand Turk will take place from April through October on a rotating basis with Bahamas sailings that stops at Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk and Nassau.

From November through April, the Miracle will sail Bahamas/Florida cruises with port calls at Cape Canaveral, Nassau and Freeport.

Carnival CEO Gerry Cahill noted that the line has offered seasonal voyages from New York for more than a decade, but said “the convenience of sailing from the Big Apple on a year-round basis, combined with its unique appeal as a pre- and post-cruise destination” strongly influenced the decision for the year-round program.

Seth Pinsky, president of the New York City Economic Development Corp., said the deployment would generate $13 million in direct visitor spending per year.

The Miracle is currently operating eight-day Caribbean cruises from New York, In October, the ship will reposition to Fort Lauderdale for a series of eight-day Caribbean voyages before heading back to New York to begin its year-round deployment next April.
