TAMPA — Carnival Cruise Line will add a second ship that will sail year round from Port Tampa Bay. The Carnival Miracle will offer seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning in January 2018.

"With this addition the port and the Tampa Bay community will host over a million cruise passengers for the first time ever and bolster its position as a top ten cruise port," Paul Anderson, the port's CEO, said today in a press release.

Carnival Miracle's week-long cruises will depart on the weekend and go to George Town, Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan; and Belize City, Belize.

The 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle joins the 2,052-passenger Carnival Paradise, which operates year-round four- and five-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa.
