Galveston Bids Bon Voyage to Carnival Triumph

Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Triumph sailed from the Port of Galveston for her final time on March 21. A fixture at the port for the past four and half years, the 2754-passenger "Fun Ship" has embarked hundreds of thousands of sea-going tourists in Galveston on voyages to Mexico and the Caribbean. It now has been repositioned to New Orleans.

"We are saddened to see Carnival Triumph depart our facilities for the last time today," stated Galveston Port Director Michael Mierzwa. "Carnival Triumph played a key role not only in our success in the cruise industry and becoming the fourth busiest cruise port in the United States, but also significantly contributed to the local and regional economy. She will be missed."

Replacing Carnival Triumph in Galveston is a sister ship, the 2974-passenger Carnival Liberty, which arrived here on March 18 and departed on an inaugural 8-day cruise. Carnival Liberty will sail year-round four- and five-day cruises to Mexico from Galveston beginning March 26.  Four-day "long weekend" cruises depart Thursdays and feature a stop at Cozumel, while five-day voyages depart Mondays and Saturdays visiting Cozumel and Progreso.
