JAXPORT & Carnival Keep on Cruising

On Feb. 27, 2004 Carnival Cruise Lines inaugurated service from Jacksonville, Florida’s JAXPORT with service aboard the newly christened Carnival Miracle. In August 2004, Carnival began year-round service with the Celebration and upgraded to the larger, newer Fascination in September 2008.

Due to their successful partnership over the past ten years—with more than 1.6 million passengers embarking in Jacksonville—JAXPORT and Carnival Cruise Lines have reached an agreement to extend Carnival Cruise service from the port. Carnival Fascination will continue sailing from the JAXPORT Cruise Terminal in North Jacksonville to Key West and the Bahamas for 4-day and 5-day cruises.

“We are pleased to continue this valuable partnership with Carnival Cruise Lines and usher it into a second successful decade,” said JAXPORT CEO Brian Taylor. “The Fascination offers great value and service to vacationers. It also brings jobs and opportunity to North Florida, boosts tourism and offers the region a platform to promote all of our regional assets and attractions.”
