Carnival Plans Europe Return
Ending much speculation, Carnival Cruise Lines, which this year for the first time ever is offering a series of cruises in Europe, has said today it will return for a full season plus (spring, summer and fall) next year.

Carnival Liberty, which is still under construction at Fincantieri's Monfalcone, Italy, shipyard, and which will be sailing this summer's Mediterranean voyages, has received the nod to sail there next year as well. Originally, Carnival had announced that the ship would sail year-round Caribbean itineraries.

Carnival Liberty's 2006 schedule will include 15 12-night voyages (note that the more-than-a-week length of these voyages is also a bit of a departure for Carnival) that sail round-trip from Rome's Civitavecchia, beginning May 7. The final European departure will embark on October 22. Ports of call include Naples, Dubrovnik, Sicily, Barcelona, Cannes, Livorno (for Tuscany) and an overnight stay in Venice.

The ship's modified Caribbean slate calls for a series of six- and eight-night voyages out of Ft. Lauderdale's Port Everglades from November 12 of this year to April 15. Carnival Liberty will return on November 19 to Ft. Lauderdale, where it will resume the six- and eight-night itineraries.

The 110,000-ton, 2,974-passenger Carnival Liberty will debut in July.
