This week, the Carnival Cruise Line got more bad news when it learned that its cruise ship “Port of Call” is being retired and replaced with a new one. The company says this maintenance will be done to repair leaks from corrosion on the old ship’s hull.
Carnival Cruise Line has announced that they have replaced the Port of Call with a new ship due to repair work. Read more in detail here: carnival cruise line news.
Due to maintenance work, Carnival Cruise Line has alerted customers booked on the Carnival Glory sailing out of New Orleans on March 27 of an itinerary modification. The work will continue throughout the cruise, necessitating the replacement of one port of call.
Repairs for Carnival Glory
On the next Carnival Glory excursion, which leaves New Orleans on Sunday, March 27, 2022, the cruise company plans to make some repairs to the ship. The ship’s docking mechanism will be repaired starting on Sunday, according to a letter addressed to passengers.
The anticipated visit to Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan in Honduras on Wednesday, March 30, has been canceled due to repairs on the ship. On March 29, the port will be replaced by Progreso, Mexico.

“When Carnival Glory arrives to New Orleans on Sunday, our crew will begin repair work on the ship’s docking mechanism,” Carnival Cruise Line said in the letter. Because the construction will continue during the voyage, we will have to substitute our stop at Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, with a stop in Progreso, Mexico on Tuesday, March 29.”
Progreso would be the natural option for repairs on a Conquest-class vessel, but no additional specifics on the repair work were provided in the letter. The Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, who also constructed the Carnival Glory in 2003, has a maintenance facility in Progreso. The pier at Progreso is likewise much bigger than the one in Mahogany Bay.

The seven-day western Caribbean itinerary, which includes three sea days and a planned stop at Belize on March 31 and then Cozumel, Mexico on April 1, remains unchanged. On April 3, the Carnival Glory will return to its homeport of New Orleans.
Carnival Glory is a ship of the popular Conquest class that was built in Italy at the Monfalcone shipyard. The ship was last dry docked in June 2021, when it received its new red, white, and blue livery. In January 2022, there was also a wet dock for normal hotel maintenance and aesthetic changes.
The ship has a gross tonnage of 110,000 tons, a passenger capacity of 2,980 at double occupancy, and a crew of 1,150 foreign crew members.
