Carnival Cruise Line has begun opening its 2025 and 2026 deployment with new sailings from Galveston, Texas available for booking today. Cruises aboard Carnival Breeze, Carnival Dream, and the fleet’s newest ship Carnival Jubilee—set to debut later this year—are now available with sail dates through April 2026.

“Galveston is one of our most popular homeports, and the addition of Carnival Jubilee brings not only an all-new cruise experience and increased capacity—it also gives us the opportunity to freshen our offerings for the other popular ships homeported there, Carnival Dream and Carnival Breeze,” said Fred Stein, Carnival’s VP of revenue planning and deployment.

“Building on our strong portfolio of options out of Texas will give our guests in that region great new options as they look ahead and plan for their future vacations,” Stein continued in a press release.
