Carnival’s upcoming exclusive destination, which is set to open in the summer of 2025, will be a major feature of many 2025-26 sailings that opened for sale today. Adding 100 more sailings with visits there brings the total number of available itineraries featuring Celebration Key to 500. Now, Celebration Key is set to welcome 18 Carnival ships sailing from nine U.S. homeports.
The Port of Tampa is the latest Carnival homeport to add sailings that feature visits to Celebration Key.

Several of these itineraries include visits to Celebration Key. Among the other destinations available are Grand Cayman; Montego Bay; Amber Cove, Dominican Republic; Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos; Belize; Cozumel; Mahogany Bay; San Juan, Puerto Rico and Half Moon Cay and Princess Cays, Bahamas.
