Carnival Announces Name of New Bahamas Cruise Port Destination

Recommended Posts


Further Details and Itineraries Open for Sale Coming in Late September

Cue the Junkanoo band, drumroll please… Carnival Cruise Line announces that the name of its new Bahamas cruise port destination is… Celebration Key.

As Carnival gets ready to open itineraries in late September for cruises that will call on its highly-anticipated exclusive cruise port destination on Grand Bahama, it revealed the name – Celebration Key – to guests, employees, travel advisors, and Bahamian officials today.


Celebration Key is the first port destination exclusively for Carnival Cruise Line guests. Its name is based on the vision for the destination to be a celebration of all that Carnival and The Bahamas has to offer for a memorable vacation. Once complete, it will be capable of welcoming two million guests each year.

“We are working very closely with the Government of The Bahamas and the Grand Bahama Port Authority to ensure that we are highlighting the best of Grand Bahama and its culture, combined with fun like only Carnival can provide,” said Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy. “Invoking the natural beauty of Grand Bahama, every day at Celebration Key will be a celebration of our guests’ own making with a variety of experiences and something for everyone.”

More on Celebration Key

Grand Bahama is a northern island of The Bahamas and is known its breathtaking beaches, lush vegetation, and friendly people. Celebration Key will offer a uniquely Bahamian experience with an abundance of features and amenities. These will include a one-mile stretch of white-sand beach, as well as Bahamian-operated retail, food, and beverage options for Carnival guests to enjoy.

For the ultimate convenience and maximum enjoyment time, the adjacent cruise pier will be able to accommodate up to two of Carnival’s Excel-class ships simultaneously to allow guests to walk off the ship and arrive at Celebration Key.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the destination was held in May 2022 and design, engineering, and construction work is now underway.

In late September, Carnival plans to announce further details of the destination, along with opening for sale the first itineraries on at least ten ships from multiple homeports that will include a visit to Celebration Key. The first cruises will call on the destination in July 2025.
