As part of Carnival Cruise Line’s successful return to guest operations, Carnival Freedom arrived in Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, today, marking the line’s first time back to the port since resuming service.

The six-day Eastern Caribbean cruise departed PortMiami Dec. 12, and featured ports include Half Moon Cay and Amber Cove.

“We are delighted to bring Carnival Freedom back to Grand Turk and to offer our guests the opportunity to experience all of this port’s beauty once again,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “On behalf of Carnival, I would like to thank the Turks and Caicos Islands Government and all our partners on the ground in Grand Turk for working with us to make this opportunity possible.”

By year’s end, Carnival will have 19 ships in operation as the line’s successful restart of operations continues. All 22 of Carnival’s U.S.-based ships will be back in guest operations by March 2022.
