 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.

    As this was our first cruise, I had done all the online research and read all the reviews. Most of the reviews were not positive so I tried to maintain an open mind. We boarded in more

    A great mini-vacation offering good value! From the beginning, everything went RIGHT for us on this trip. My fiancée and I flew from Toronto to Houston, and my parents flew in 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.
