Beginning on January 27, 2018, Carnival Miracle will cruise year-round on seven-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa. This will be Carnival’s second ship based in Tampa. The Carnival Paradise is also based in Tampa.

The Carnival Miracle’s seven-day cruises will depart on either Saturday and Sunday and visit four Caribbean ports including: George Town, Cozumel, Mahogany Bay – an island off of Honduras – and Belize City, Belize.

The seven-day cruises from Tampa include Carnival’s new Cozumel Plus program that allows for extended stays in Cozumel with late-night departures.

This is good news for those who choose the day-long Mexican ruins shore excursions on the Mexican mainland – it gives those passengers extra time when they return to Cozumel after their tour.

The 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle joins the 2,052-passenger Carnival Paradise which operates year-round four- and five-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa.

Carnival is the only year-round cruise operator from Tampa. The two ships will offer four-, five- and seven-day cruises from Tampa.
