Carnival's newest not-yet-launched Miracle has been assigned to a year-round
home port in Tampa beginning in November 2004. The 2,124-passenger ship will
take over Inspiration's seven day Western Caribbean run, which calls at
Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel and Belize. Inspiration will stay in
Tampa, however, replacing Sensation, which is handling the short cruise
route with four- and five-day trips to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.
Sensation gets a new assignment as well. The 2,052-passenger ship will
replace Holiday in New Orleans, which has been serving the short cruise
market. Sensation launches from the "Big Easy" in October 2004 and will sail
four- and five-day itineraries to Cozumel, Costa Maya and Calica.
Holiday, as Carnival announced last week, will head to Jacksonville.
