Carnival Cruise Lines Returns to Seasonal New York Sailings
Carnival Splendor (11:08 a.m.) -- With the announcement that Carnival Splendor will reposition to South Florida beginning November 2014, Carnival Cruise Lines is returning to its tradition of sailing only seasonally out of New York City. Several months of cruises were canceled as a result of the decision to move the ship south.

The line had been sailing year round from New York since April 2012.

Splendor will become the line's seventh ship to be based in South Florida when it arrives in Miami on November 9, 2014. The ship will then sail a series of week-long cruises alternating between the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Once the Caribbean season comes to an end, the ship will return to New York City, Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen told Cruise Critic.

According to Cruise Critic forum members, passengers on cancelled cruises will receive a $50 per person onboard credit when they select another cruise. Their original pricing also will be protected on comparable sailings, in similar cabin categories.

The line did not give a reason for the switch.
