Carnival has set out its plans to restore sailings to the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.
Three of the company’s brands – Carnival Cruise Line, Holland America Line and Princess Cruises – will complete more than 250 sailings to destinations in the Bahamas by the end of the year.
The company said the calls would support the country’s tourism industry and provide a significant economic boost for local people and businesses.
Carnival Cruise Line will make 41 planned called to Nassau and Carnival’s private island destinations, Half Moon Cay and Princess Cays, during the remainder of September, and an estimated 204 through to the end of the year on eight of its ships.
Princess Cruises has 19 Bahamas sailings scheduled through to the end of 2019, starting 9 October, including one by Sky Princess, which will launch in October.
HAL, meanwhile, has 46 Bahamas sailings scheduled to the end of the year across seven of its ships.
Carnival said Nassau and its private island destinations had suffered “little impact” from Dorian, which tore across Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands earlier this month.
