Carnival Cruise Line today announced its first cruise back in Australian waters in over two years, with the sailing on the Carnival Splendor on sale now.

Carnival’s Fun Ships were moved out of the wave season calendar earlier this year, when at the time, it was still unclear when Australia’s cruise ban would be lifted.

Carnival had cancelled sailings on the Splendor from June 10, 2022 through September 26, 2022. But the Carnival Spirit will not return till October 5, 2023. She was due to sail out of Brisbane’s new cruise terminal.

Departing from Sydney on October 2, 2022, guests on board will have the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the fabulous Carnival Splendor on this three-day getaway cruise.

With over 45 onboard activities to explore including the exhilarating Green-Lightning thrill-slide, family-friendly shows, delicious dining experiences and more, Carnival Splendor’s first Australian cruise in over 930 days is the perfect sampler to reignite your love for cruising.

On the cruise, Carnival Cruise Line Australia Vice President, Kara Glamore said: “Thanks to a scheduling availability, we’re extremely pleased to welcome guests back on board Carnival Splendor earlier than expected.

Splendor’s departure from Seattle earlier this week marked the restart of the entire Carnival Cruise Line fleet, so it’s great that she will be kicking off our season in Australia ahead of our 10th Aussie birthday in October.”

Carnival Splendor’s three-day cruise departs Sydney on October 2, 2022 and fares start from $437 AUD per person twin share interior.
