The cruise line’s annual Cruise to the Bahamas cruise ships and a fleet of six private charter ships will be sailing into Florida next month, bringing with them a host of new attractions and services.
The cruises are slated to hit Florida in late October and November, and the fleet will be anchored at Key West, Fla., for a month-long voyage.
For many travelers, the Bahamas is their first stop in the Caribbean, but that hasn’t always been the case.
When they first arrived in the United States, many of them traveled with little to no understanding of the country or its history.
But that changed with the arrival of cruise ships in the early 1900s.
For the first time, travelers were able to enjoy the country, the sights, and experiences of the region, said Michael R. Schoenborn, president of the Bahamas Tourism Board.
The first Caribbean cruise ship arrived in Miami in 1909, and in the years following, the Caribbean cruise industry grew.
Today, more than 30 Caribbean cruise lines operate, and they are all based in the U.S. According to Schoenbeck, Caribbean tourism is growing at an annual rate of around 3 percent, which is more than twice as fast as the rest of the world.
That growth is largely driven by the U-shaped economy of the United Kingdom, which employs roughly 2.7 million people and is home to some of the most expensive destinations in the world, such as New York and Paris.
That’s why, in the past two decades, there have been major changes in the way people travel around the Caribbean.
In recent years, tourism has been growing in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Europe, according to Schönbeck.
“There is no question that the region has had its share of growth, and it’s important for us to continue to be on top of that,” he said.
For travelers, that means exploring Caribbean culture and history, taking in some of Florida’s most popular destinations and getting to know some of its newest attractions.
“We need to be aware of the changes happening in the region and to prepare for the future,” Schoenbensaid.
“But, it’s not just the changing geography of the Caribbean that is changing.
It’s also the culture and the history.”
Carnival Cruise Lines Caribbean Cruise Line is the leading Caribbean cruise line and the only major cruise line in the country.
Carnival cruises operate from several ports in the Bahamas, Caribbean, and off the Bahamas coast.
They typically visit three or four destinations during their Caribbean cruise trips, but a few destinations are off-limits, such and the Bahamas resort city of Nassau.
Carnival Cruise Line’s website provides a guide to some popular destinations, including St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Croix, the Turks and Caicos, and Trinidad and Tobago.
“The Bahamas has a rich history and is known for its rich heritage and heritage tourism,” said John J. D’Amico, executive director of the Nassau Tourism Board, which oversees the Nassaus Convention and Visitors Bureau, which organizes Carnival cruise trips.
“That’s a great thing for us because we want to continue our long-term relationship with Carnival.”
Carnival cruisers often take advantage of a variety of vacation options that can be found in other countries, including the Caribbean Islands, the French Caribbean, the St. Martin Islands, and Grenada.
While some of those destinations are not always available to U.s. visitors, other destinations such as St. Barthelemy, St Helena, and St. Lucia are not so far from Florida.
The Bahamas has about 25,000 people, according a 2014 report from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
The islands are located about 120 miles west of Miami and about 80 miles north of St. Augustine.
Carnival cruise ships usually travel between Nassau and Port Canaveral.
For most passengers, the island destinations they’ll be exploring include St. Helena, St Croix and the islands of St Martin, St Barthelet, St Vincent, St Martinique, and Saint Martin.
