The replica of Michelangelo’s statue of David will be back sailing on Carnival Cruise Line. After nearly two decades on Carnival Pride, the statue was removed in 2023, but he’s now found a new home on Carnival Firenze – designed and named for the city of Florence, where the real David is on display at the Academia Gallery.


Carnival Firenze will be arriving to Long Beach, Calif. in April and will depart on its inaugural cruise April 25, where guests will experience Carnival Fun Italian Style.
