Stein explains that the decision to debut the ship at one of Carnival’s busiest ports will have wider strategic benefits for the cruise line beyond the success of Carnival Jubilee’s maiden season. “It is important for us to bring our upcoming flagship to our homeport of Galveston,” he says. “Galveston is one of our most popular homeports, and the addition of Carnival Jubilee brings not only an all-new cruise experience and increased capacity – it also gives us the opportunity to freshen our offerings for the other popular ships homeported there, Carnival Dream and Carnival Breeze. Building on our strong portfolio of options out of Texas will give our guests in that region great new options as they look ahead and plan for their future vacations.” Ultimately, concludes Stein, the most important consideration for Carnival when deciding on any of its itineraries remains its guests. “We’ll judge the first season for Carnival Jubilee the same way we judge the maiden season of every new ship – based on the feedback from our guests,” he says.
