New Orleans Gets Second Year-Round Ship
Let the good times roll: Carnival Cruise Lines has announced it will homeport a second year-round vessel in New Orleans. The 102,000-ton, 2,758-passenger Carnival Triumph will begin sailing from the Big Easy in the fall of 2007.

Carnival is currently the only cruise line operating there year-round; its Fantasy will begin New Orleans-based cruises on October 26, 2006, replacing Sensation after a long post-Katrina hiatus (click here to see who else is returning this fall). The newer, larger Carnival Triumph will join Fantasy on August 28, 2007 for a one-time five-day cruise to Costa Maya and Cozumel before settling into regular seven-day Western Caribbean cruises from September 2, 2007.

Triumph's weeklong voyages will alternate between two itineraries: Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios; and Belize, Cozumel and Progreso (available November through April).
