Carnival Cruise Line’s recently-refurbished Carnival Miracle will expand the company’s presence in Galveston to four ships.
On March 2, 2023, Carnival Cruise Line announced it’s expanding its offerings from Galveston, Texas by bringing a fourth ship to homeport there, beginning in 2024.
Carnival Miracle will offer 10- to 12-day sailings from Galveston, beginning in the fall of 2024 through spring 2025.
Sailing from Galveston, Miracle will join Carnival Breeze, which offers four- and five-day cruises, Carnival Dream, which sails mostly six- and eight-day cruises, and the new Excel-class Carnival Jubilee which arrives in December 2023 to begin week-long western Caribbean sailings.
“We have always offered a great variety of cruises from Galveston, but by adding a fourth Carnival ship to homeport in Galveston and sailing these longer itineraries, we are giving our guests great new choices, especially for those who want to experience a wider variety of beautiful ports of call and more time to enjoy their time at sea,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
“Galveston is one of our top homeports, and with the arrival of Carnival Jubilee and the new Carnival Miracle itineraries, it will only grow in popularity with our guests,” Duffy continued.

Miracle will reposition from San Francisco to Galveston at the beginning of October 2024. She’ll then set sail on a Carnival Journeys voyage that includes stops in Cabo San Lucas, Puntarenas, Cartagena, and a full transit of the Panama Canal.

About Carnival Miracle
A Spirit-class ship built in 2004, Carnival Miracle recently underwent renovations while she was in dry dock last year. In addition to an expanded casino, she also sports new carpeting, tile, furniture, and new upholstery in public areas.
The ship also received a fresh coat of paint, with Carnival’s red, white, and blue livery on her hull.
The 2200-passenger ship offers many of the signature venues Carnival cruisers know and love, including Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, RedFrog Rum Bar, and Alchemy Bar.
Carnival Miracle also has lots of unique features inspired by elements of fantasy, like the Phantom Lounge and the two-story Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab disco.
