Carnival Cruise Lines To Deploy Second Cruise Ship To New Orleans In Aug. 07

Carnival Cruise Lines said that by August 2007 it would deploy a second year-round ship to New Orleans. The 2,758-passenger ship named Carnival Triumph would cement Carnival’s status as the number one cruise operator, Carnival said. The company claimed that it would be the only cruise line to operate year-round from New Orleans and, with the deployment of the line’s 2,056-passenger Fantasy to New Orleans in October, it would now offer four-, five- and seven-day cruise to the most attractive destinations in the western Caribbean.
