Carnival Cruise Ship Rerouting to Virginia Following Baltimore Bridge Collapse

Carnival Cruise Line has announced that it will temporarily relocate the Carnival Legend’s homeport from Baltimore to Norfolk, Virginia following the collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on Tuesday morning. The bridge was damaged after a container ship crashed into it, forcing the Port of Baltimore to close indefinitely.

Carnival is providing guests on the ship with a bus back to Baltimore due to the closure. However, travelers aboard the Carnival Legend will now be disembarking at Norfolk instead of Baltimore as planned for their weeklong Caribbean vacation. The cruise line has also announced that its next weeklong cruise will depart from Norfolk and future plans to return to Maryland will be updated as guests.

Other cruise lines like Royal Caribbean and American Cruise Line that sail from the Port of Baltimore are yet to comment on potential itinerary changes as a result of the port’s closure. Business experts estimate that the ongoing shutdown of the port could mean a daily loss of $15 million in economic activity, despite it being a smaller cruise departure hub compared to others in the US.
