Carnival Cruise Lines has added two distinctly different five-day itineraries to Carnival Freedom’s year-round schedule from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., beginning in 2014.

The new five-day itineraries include a western Caribbean route featuring Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman, and an eastern Caribbean/Bahamas option featuring Grand Turk, Nassau and the private Bahamian island of Half Moon Cay.  Departure dates for western Caribbean routes are June 30, Aug. 11 and Sept. 22, 2014, while the eastern

Caribbean/Bahamas cruises depart May 19, June 9, July 21, Sept. 1 and Oct. 13, 2014.

These new five-day itineraries complement Carnival Freedom’s popular year-round six- and eight-day voyages from Fort Lauderdale, providing consumers with a diverse array of destination and cruise duration choices from South Florida.
