Cruises depart from Jacksonville, Florida throughout the year. The short cruises on Carnival Cruise Line take you to the beautiful islands of the Bahamas for a getaway. Get onboard a Jacksonville cruise for sun and fun.
Spend a few days before or after your Jacksonville cruise. Jacksonville is the hub of northern Florida. Downtown has picturesque riverwalks on the St Johns River and Jacksonville Landing's shops. Just over the Intracoastal Waterway are the Jacksonville beaches, with some of the whitest and widest beaches anywhere.
Carnival Cruises from Jacksonville sail to the Bahamas. Enjoy the pool decks, restaurants, casino, lounges, and spa. Camp Carnival programs will keep the kids happy. 4-day and 5-day cruises take you to Bahamas ports like Nassau, Freeport and Half Moon Cay (a private island). These are quick, inexpensive vacations.
There are also small ship cruises out of Jacksonville to the historic Southern coast and to Florida rivers. These trips are on calm inland waterways.
