According to news reports, Carnival plans to be able to send cruise ships back to the Baltimore Cruise Port before the end of May.

The collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on March 24th, 2024 was a tragic event.  In the wake of this tragedy, the city is starting to look ahead with plans to restore crucial functions like the marine port operations.

This includes the cruise industry, as it is a vital part of Baltimore’s economy. Cruise ships have not been able to return to the port since the collapse, and Carnival has been bussing passengers to and from Norfolk, Virginia for cruises.

$100 onboard credit per stateroom has helped ease the frustration for passengers inconvenience by long bus rides between ports, but at least one cruise line is announcing plans to come back to Baltimore soon.

In an update to WMAR-2 News in Baltimore, Carnival Cruise Line made the following statement:

We informed our guests that we have been given a strong indication that cruise traffic can return to Baltimore before the end of May, and based on guidance from port officials, we are planning to embark guests on Carnival Pride’s May 19 cruise in Norfolk, Va. but expect to conclude the sailing in Baltimore.”

This essentially means the cruise on Carnival Pride would be a one-way cruise since it will have a different debarkation port than its original embarkation port.
