 Carnival Jubilee

Carnival Jubilee has been retired and is no longer in service

Built in 1986 as Carnival's second Holiday-class ship, Jubilee used to be deployed on the line's exotic itineraries such as the Panama Canal and Alaska. But when the brand-new Carnival Spirit entered service in early 2001, Jubilee was based in Tampa, and later in Galveston, for year-round short cruises to the Western Caribbean.

    Embarkment: Very easy to get on this boat. We got on the boat around noon. However, I must warn that they do not have porters around noontime because they are eating lunch. You have more

    Just got off the boat yesterday and advise anyone who has a cruise booked on this boat to change your plans now! Our first clue that the Jubilee was not being kept up should have been more

Excerpts from Carnival's Website about Carnival Jubilee

Our 4 and 5 day "Fun from Texas" getaways are some of our most popular sailings. Sail from Galveston on a 4 day cruise leaving on Thursday and returning on Monday. It's the perfect long weekend! Our 5 day sailings depart on Mondays and Saturdays and take you to Calica and Cozumel. Either cruise is an opportunity to get away from the ordinary for a few days and immerse yourself in the beauty of Mexico. Let us take you there in the intimate and pampering atmosphere of the Jubilee.
