NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Carnival Cruise Lines has announced Carnival Glory will not deploy from Norfolk in 2014.
The move is just one of several new ship deployments.
"Carnival routinely evaluates its itineraries and make adjustments as needed based on guest preference and overall financial performance of different itineraries," Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen told WAVY.com. "We have a great partnership with the Port of Norfolk and know many of our guests enjoy cruising from there. We will evaluate all viable options to return to Norfolk in the future."
Carnival Glory will remain in Miami year-round.
"That's surprising because there's so many people around here, Now they'll have to go somewhere else to go on one," said Kellie Torres, a Norfolk resident.
"We're disappointed," said Hank Lynch, executive director of the campus that houses Nauticus and the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center . "Right now we're not anticipating any reduction in revenue at all."
WAVY News' Ava Hurdle will have more on this move beginning at 5 p.m.
