Carnival Cruise Line Newest Ship Ecstasy

Carnival received the newest ship Ecstasy this Monday evening. Ecstasy sailed into Port Canaveral, bringing a projected USD 50 million-a-year economic impact for the Space Coast. Port Canaveral estimates the cruise ship’s presence will directly generate 400 jobs and add 600 part time and seasonal jobs.

The ship is Carnival’s third ship based at Brevard County’s seaport, joining the Dream and the Sensation. It will sail to the Bahamas on four- and five-day itineraries.

With these three ships, Carnival will carry roughly 600,000 passengers a year from Port Canaveral the most of any cruise line and will offer its customers trips of three, four, five and seven days. The Ecstasy becomes the Number Seven year round Cruise ship in addition to Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruises having Two Cruise Ships based at that port.
