Central Florida will soon welcome a floating tribute to Italy, when one of Carnival Cruise Line’s latest additions, the Carnival Venezia, starts sailing from Port Canaveral in 2024. Her journey from Venice to New York City, to one of Carnival’s most popular homeports, was a strategic choice – allowing “snowbirds” to experience “Carnival Fun Italian Style” cruising before returning back up north the following Spring.

Carnival Venezia Port Canaveral: Ship Overview and Itineraries

Guests on the Venezia will be saying “ciao” to unforgettable Italian-inspired features as soon as they board, starting with the Venice-themed atrium, Piazza San Marco, which sets the tone for the adventure. The journey continues through unique culinary experiences, with three-course offerings at Marco Polo and Canal Grande Restaurants, as well as the Italian street food at La Strada Grill™. There are also exciting fusion offerings at Tomodoro™ (a delightful Mexican-Italian blend) and even at the Carnival-famous Guy’s Burger Joint, where some burger options get an Italian twist. The upscale Italian restaurant, Il Viaggio, elevates the dining experience in true ristorante fashion. Each bar on board offers a unique beverage experience, with sophisticated mixology at Amari™, a range of fizzy drinks, snacks, and coffee at Frizzante™, icy delights at Rococó™, and premium Italian wines at Carnevale Bar & Lounge™. When it comes to entertainment, the plush red Teatro Rosso offers Playlist Productions™ shows, and the Gondola Lounge takes its inspiration from Venice’s famous waterways. Even the Venezia’s Terrazza staterooms showcase Italian flair while simultaneously redefining style and comfort. These staterooms are conveniently located close to amenities like the exclusive Terrazza Carnevale – a private sun deck perfect for lounging and sipping!

The 5,000-passenger Carnival Venezia is set to embark on a variety of itineraries from Port Canaveral. These include 7-day sailings to the Eastern or Western Caribbean, as well as select 14-day sailings to the Southern Caribbean. Cruisers can delight in trips to the sun-soaked beaches of the Bahamas, Mexico, the Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico, and more, all while experiencing a piece of Italy onboard!
