Carnival Cruise Line has plans to grow its fleet by two additional ships by 2023. It’s taking over the delivery of an Excel-class ship that had previously been assigned to sister line AIDA Cruises that will arrive in late 2023, as well as taking ownership of Costa Magica from European sister line Costa Cruises. That 2,700-passenger ship, built in 2004, will go through a dry dock and be renamed to join the Carnival fleet by mid-2022.
These two ships are in addition to the new capacity growth represented by Mardi Gras, Carnival’s first Excel-class ship which starts sailing from Port Canaveral on July 31 and her sister ship, Carnival Celebration, which will be delivered and sail from Miami starting in late 2022, as part of Carnival’s 50th birthday festivities.
