Carnival Cruise Lines is celebrating Texas Pride with one of its newest ships and paying homage to it's new home port of Galveston for the Carnival Jubilee.

This past week, Carnival Cruise Lines unveiled its newest ship, the Jubilee, which is aiming to start sailing by the end of 2023. On the bow of the ship is a large star with the word TEXAS under the star. The company wanted to celebrate the first ship that would be sailing out of Galveston according to the Houston Chronicle.

“The Texas star on Carnival Jubilee’s bow is a symbol of our commitment to the Port of Galveston. As the first cruise line to sail year-round from Galveston, we have a long history with the community, and our next new ship is our latest investment in support of the local economy’s impressive growth while delivering innovative experiences for our guests,” said Christine Duffy, the company’s president. “I’m looking forward to Carnival Jubilee showing off her Texas pride starting later this year.”

The ship’s addition to Carnival’s Galveston operations was first announced in 2021, and a $53 million expansion of the Port of Galveston’s Cruise Terminal 25. Its name is a tribute to the first Jubilee, which first set sail from Galveston in 2002.

As someone who has learned that cruising is awesome, I can't wait to check out the Jubilee. Maybe even next year.

The Jubilee is currently going through testing and continued construction in Germany. Once the ship arrives in Galveston, it will be doing year-around sailings to the Western Caribbean.
