The Carnival Splendor was the last of the ships to return to service yesterday in Seattle.
Carnival President was at the Port of Seattle yesterday to celebrate the return to service of the Carnival Splendor. Duffy was also celebrating that all of Carnival's twenty-three ships were back in service.
Duffy said, "with Carnival Splendor beginning operations today from Seattle, Carnival Cruise Line is thrilled to have our entire fleet of 23 ships back in service, providing more opportunities for our guests to enjoy our signature fun while traveling to beautiful vacation destinations."
Duffy added, "We are especially excited to expand our Alaska program this season with three ships bringing more than 100,000 guests – including more than 6,000 this week – from Seattle and San Francisco to awe-inspiring Alaska ports."
According to the cruise line, the Carnival Splendor's summer itineraries to Alaska are part of a three-ship deployment with Carnival Spirit from Seattle and Carnival Miracle from San Francisco – the largest-ever cruise program Carnival has sailed to Alaska.
Carnival now operates from 12 U.S. homeports, including Miami, Galveston, Port Canaveral, Long Beach, Baltimore, New Orleans, Tampa, Charleston, Jacksonville, Mobile, Seattle, and San Francisco.
