Carnival Venezia was officially registered today with the Bahamas Maritime Authority (BMA). During a ceremony in Cadiz, Spain, Carnival Venezia’s senior leadership team and the classification society completed all necessary registration processes and raised the Bahamian flag to designate the new ship registry.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate another maritime milestone as Carnival Venezia joins the seven other ships we have registered in The Bahamas,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “The BMA is among the most respected administrations in international shipping, and we value their level of cooperation and professionalism aimed to achieve the highest safety standards.”

Carnival Venezia is currently undergoing a dry dock in Cadiz and will depart on her 15-day transatlantic Carnival Journeys sailing from Barcelona on May 29, 2023.  The ship is set to begin year-round cruising from New York’s Manhattan Cruise Terminal on June 15, 2023. A wide range of sailing options are available, with 10 different cruise durations and 22 unique itineraries featuring visits to 25 ports across 14 countries.

Carnival Venezia will be the first ship to feature “Fun Italian Style” combining the Italian theming of the ship with Carnival’s signature fun.  Built in 2019, Carnival Venezia accommodates up to 5,145 guests and 1,393 Carnival crew members.
