Sailing Itinerary

Note: Cruise itineraries are subject to change. Please verify ports and times directly with the cruise line.

Day 1 Port of Call Galveston Departure 5:00pm

Overview

One of Texas's most popular year-round coastal destinations, Galveston is an island in the Gulf of Mexico 50 miles southeast of Houston, connected to the mainland by a causeway and bridge. The island is a marriage of the best of both worlds: it is both city and seaside resort. It offers historical and cultural attractions, as well as swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing. The restored Victorian Strand district, resort hotels, and beachfront businesses give a commercial feel to the north end of the island, while miles of private and rental residences on the southern end offer solitude and open beach access. Once one of the world's great port cities, Galveston was nearly devastated by a hurricane in 1900. More than 6,000 residents were killed by the storm, and many structures were demolished. The hurricane prompted city officials to raise the island and add a seawall, making Galveston a safe place to visit today. After the 1900 hurricane and the opening of the Houston ship channel, Galveston lost its position as Texas's busiest seaport and the street known as the Strand -- formerly the site of stores, offices, and warehouses -- faded as a bustling center of commerce. In the 1950s, preservationists launched Galveston's renaissance by restoring stately homes and building up commercial districts with modern facilities. The Strand, now on the National Register of Historic Places, has one of the largest collections of historic buildings in the country. A resort city with a southern flair, Galveston is a petite and blended version of New Orleans and Charleston.

Day 2 Cruising
Day 3 Port of Call Key West Arrival 12:00pm Departure 6:00pm

Overview

Key West, a U.S. island city, is part of the Florida Keys archipelago. It's also Florida's southernmost point, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Famed for its pastel-hued, conch-style houses, it’s a cruise-ship stop also accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway. It’s known more for its coral reefs – destinations for diving and snorkeling – than for its beaches.

Day 4 Cruising
Day 5 Port of Call Grand Turk Arrival 8:00am Departure 4:00pm

Overview

Grand Turk Island is the capital island of the Turks and Caicos archipelago, in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s dotted with the remains of salt ponds and windmills from the island’s sea salt industry, prevalent from the 17th to 20th century. The 19th-century Grand Turk Lighthouse is perched on a rocky bluff in the north. Beaches with clear water ring the island, which is home to wild horses and donkeys.

Day 6 Port of Call San Juan Arrival 1:00pm Departure 9:00pm

Overview

San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital and largest city, sits on the island's Atlantic coast. Its widest beach fronts the Isla Verde resort strip, known for its bars, nightclubs and casinos. Cobblestoned Old San Juan features colorful Spanish colonial buildings and 16th-century landmarks including El Morro and La Fortaleza, massive fortresses with sweeping ocean views, as well as the Paseo de la Princesa bayside promenade.

Day 7 Port of Call Saint Thomas Arrival 8:00am Departure 5:00pm

Overview

St. Thomas combines the natural beauty of the islands with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is one of the most beautiful harbors in the world and the most visited port in the Caribbean. Elegant dining, exciting nightlife, and world-class duty-free shopping are abundant in Charlotte Amalie. The city's reputation as the shopping mecca of the Caribbean draws visitors from all over the region and around the world. A mountainous island, St. Thomas offers stunning vistas in almost every direction. While Charlotte Amalie is full of energy, St. Thomas also provides natural wonders such as the indescribably beautiful Magens Bay and stunning views of the Caribbean from 1,500 feet above sea level. Drake's Seat is particularly famous for its vistas. Sports and activities are abundant on St. Thomas. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the George and Tom Fazio-designed Mahogany Run course. St. Thomas is also well known for its world-class yachting and sportfishing.

Day 8 Port of Call Saint Kitts Arrival 8:00am Departure 5:00pm

Overview

St. Kitts is the larger of the 2 Caribbean islands that comprise the nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis. It’s known for rainforested mountains and beaches of white, gray, and black sands. On its southwestern coast is the capital, Basseterre, and Georgian buildings from the colonial era. Anchoring Basseterre is the Circus, a plaza modeled after London’s Piccadilly Circus, complete with Victorian-style clock tower.

Day 9 Port of Call Philipsburg Arrival 8:00am Departure 5:00pm

Overview

Philipsburg is the capital of St. Maarten, the Dutch side of the Caribbean island St. Maarten. Beachfront bars line the boardwalk along Great Bay. Voorstraat, or Front Street, has duty-free shops and casinos. The St. Maarten Zoo is home to parrots, monkeys and a playground. St. Maarten Museum displays artifacts from the indigenous Arawak people. The ruins of 17th-century Fort Amsterdam stand on a nearby peninsula.

Day 10 Port of Call Saint Croix Arrival 7:00am Departure 4:00pm

Overview

Saint Croix is the largest of the Virgin Islands. Christiansted and Frederiksted are the two main cities to see while on Saint Croix. There is so much to do and see while in Saint Croix that partaking in a guided tour is often advised. Buck Island Reef is perhaps one of the most unique national monuments in the United States because it is underwater. The two major underwater trails are the East End Trail and the Turtle Bay Trail. After exploring the reefs, head over to Cramer Park and enjoy a nice picnic lunch. On weekends DJ's set up shop and spin some great music. The rum produced in the Virgin Islands' is infamous. To see how the entire process happens take a tour of the Cruzan Rum Distillery. Point Udall is the most eastern point in the United Sates. This is one of the most picturesque spots on the island. Saint Croix has 15 acres of privately owned Rain Forest that is open to visitors at certain times. Lush foliage, stately tress and graceful mountain doves all create a serene untouched environment. St. Croix Leap is located in the Rain Forest. Woodcarvers create beautiful sculptures and furniture from the mahogany that grows on-sight. The Whim Greathouse is a historical point of interest. A main house, bathhouse, watch house, windmill and cook house are all located on the property. The property even has an apothecary. Located on the Caribbean, Christiansted is an absolutely breathtaking city. The Government House, which was built in 1747, is open to the public. The Outdoor Market is the best spot on the island to get fresh fruit. Christiansted also has some beautiful old churches. The city of Frederiksted also has many historical points of interest. The Old Danish School dates back to the 1830's. St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church was constructed with opulent coral stone. The Market, which has been a part of the city since 1751, still thrives today

Day 11 Cruising
Day 12 Port of Call Ocho Rios Arrival 8:00am Departure 4:00pm

Overview

Ocho Rios, or "Ochee" as it is known locally, has experienced such explosive growth over the last decade that few people can recall the sleepy fishing village, bauxite port and stream-laced nirvana that once existed. Today it is a high density town of concrete hotels, condominium complexes, office blocks, multiple shopping centers and extreme traffic congestion but still one of the favorite cruise ship ports in the Caribbean. The economy of the town is based almost entirely on tourism.

Day 13 Cruising
Day 14 Cruising
Day 15 Port of Call Galveston Arrival 8:00am

Options include two dual-level dining rooms, a gourmet steakhouse, the always-popular Lido Restaurant, the way-fun RedFrog Rum Bar and the cool BlueIguana Tequila Bar. You’ll also want to check out Ocean Plaza, which combines tasty treats with perhaps even tastier entertainment. You’ll find a fantastic variety of water-based fun throughout the ship, from the heart-racing waterslide action at WaterWorks to the soul-soothing Thalassotherapy pool at the Cloud 9 Spa.

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que: Enjoy a wide variety of BBQ favorites smoked right on board over hickory and cherry wood using Guy’s signature recipes, rubs and spices. Throw in sides like Mac Daddy Mac n Cheese, Old Skool Potato Salad and Collard Greens and you’ve got a rockin’ sea day on deck.

Beef and Thai barbecue? Chicken and black bean? Come back to Mongolian Wok and try all the combos your heart desires!

Pizzeria del Capitano: Featuring piping hot slices right out of the oven, with your choice of toppings, Pizzeria del Capitano is the good kind of cheesy — the best reason to stop in for a taste of hand-tossed specialties made with fresh mozzarella. This place rolls out pizzas and Caesar salad 24 hours a day.

Seaday Brunch: At Seaday Brunch, you can sleep in and still enjoy breakfast favorites, while early risers get a head start on lunch. You’ll enjoy huevos rancheros, special French toast, loaded mac-n-cheese and more ways to cook eggs than you may have thought possible.

Swirls: Swirls ice cream entices with sweet frozen treats around the clock! Choose from chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. Open on Lido deck 24/7, frozen yogurt and soft-serve ice cream is a great way to beat the heat all day, or the perfect nightcap after a long evening of fun.

The Carnival Deli: Craving a little taste from the old neighborhood? Enjoy old-time favorites like a hot pastrami on rye, a grilled Reuben or roasted turkey breast on a country roll. Sandwiches and wraps are always hand-carved, and served fresh with coleslaw or relish and a kosher dill pickle.
