Carnival Cruise Lines and the Port of New Orleans hosted a reception to commemorate the start up of service of the Carnival Triumph, which launched a year-round schedule of four-, five- and seven-day Caribbean cruises earlier this month.  The 2,758-passenger vessel is the largest cruise ship currently based at the port year-round.  Carnival Triumph replaced the Carnival Fantasy in New Orleans, representing a 34 percent capacity increase from that port.

On the Carnival Triumph’s schedule from New Orleans, four-day cruises depart Thursdays and call at Cozumel, while five-day voyages depart Mondays and Saturdays, visiting Progreso and Cozumel.  Seven-day cruises depart on Saturdays, with western Caribbean voyages visiting Belize City, Isla Roatan (Honduras); and Cozumel; and eastern Caribbean cruises calling at Key West, Freeport and Nassau.
