More on Celebration Key

“No one does FUN like Carnival and we are designing Celebration Key, and its five portals, with endless ways for our guests to unlock their own kind of fun in this incredible paradise that also celebrates the beauty of Grand Bahama,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Celebration Key is uniquely positioned to bring an island experience to our diverse range of guests, in a way that lets them choose their slice of ‘paradise.’”

Carnival ships will dock at an adjacent pier that can accommodate up to two of the line’s largest ships simultaneously. This will allow guests direct access to the destination. Further, Celebration Key will also include an events pavilion that is dedicated to hosting weddings, vow renewals, and other special celebrations.

Carnival plans to share more details for each of the portals over the coming months. With the development underway, there are also plans for future expansion. These include a waterpark and zipline course, giving guests more reasons to return to the destination for years to come.
