Carnival Cruise Line said it will expand the Carnival Journeys enrichment cruise series with 13 new 12- to 14-day departing from homeports along the East and West Coasts and the Gulf of Mexico in 2018 and 2019.

The new voyages are in addition to a number of previously announced nine-to 15-day Carnival Journeys cruises departing in 2017-18.

"Guests sailing on Carnival Journeys cruises can participate in unique on-board activities where they can sample local cuisine and enjoy entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on a broad range of topics – everything from photography and cooking to arts and crafts and social media – along with a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day,” are also offered," said Carnival, in a statement.

"Our Carnival Journeys cruises have proven enormously popular with guests who enjoy both unforgettable landside experiences and one-of-a-kind onboard enrichment activities that this unique program offers,” said Christine Duffy, Carnival president. “We’re thrilled to expand Carnival Journeys with these 13 new voyages that showcase some of the world’s most captivating destinations,” she added.
