From John's Blog: Although we do source some guests from international markets for our European cruises, the majority of Carnival Cruise Lines’ business continues to come from North America. We anticipate that airfares to Europe will remain high and we believe our North American passengers will continue to prefer more affordable vacation options closer to home as we move into next year.
Therefore we have decided to keep ships in North America during this period rather than place capacity in Europe in 2014. This is consistent with the trend among other major cruise lines to reduce European capacity for 2014.
I so enjoyed my Cruise there on the Magic, I am sure there will be many disappointed cruisers.
Trip, with her book & tea!
