The Carnival Ecstasy sailed into her new home port of Port Canaveral on Monday night. And now, there are SEVEN ships home ported at Canaveral year round.  (Plus the Norwegian Sun, which homeports there half of the year.)

This is good news for the suffering local economy, as estimates that the addition of another ship at the port may generate as many as 400 "direct" jobs, and pump millions into the local economy annually.

And it's good news for cruisers, as the ship will broaden options for those cruising from Port Canaveral, offering four and five night voyages to The Bahamas.

There are two choices of four night itineraries, departing on alternating Thursdays:
  • Nassau, Sea Day, and Freeport
  • Nassau,. Half Moon Cay, Day at Sea

Five night itineraries, departing Mondays and Saturdays, also offer two options:
  • Freeport, Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and a Day at Sea
  • Nassau, Freeport, Key West, Sea Day
