Carnival to use Royal Caribbean island2013-02-27
Carnival Cruise Lines has arranged with Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. to use its private island at Coco Cay for selected sailings of two Carnival ships this year.
Starting March 14, the Carnival Fascination will call there 19 times this year on its five-day cruise from Jacksonville, while the Carnival Ecstasy will call 11 times on five-day cruises from Port Canaveral. For each ship, the calls replace a stop in Key West. The switch is being made to expand and diversify Carnival’s port of call/destination options, Carnival said.
