Carnival Cruise Lines has flagged the prospect of operating a second ship in Australia with a decision likely mid next year.

The cruise line said it did not view Australia as only a one-ship market which could mean a second vessel sailing alongside Carnival Spirit.

“The decision would be based on the continued opportunity we saw in the market, based on sales figures and if there is continued demand for a Carnival type of holiday,” Carnival Cruise Lines general manager Jennifer Vandekreeke said.

“We are absolutely committed to Australia as a market for Carnival Cruise Lines, she added.

Meanwhile, a recent Carnival Spirit voyage was delayed due to supply deliveries with Vandekreeke believing a storage warehouse at the Overseas Passenger Terminal would improve turnaround time.

“The cruise industry has grown faster than the infrastructure has. We have to think very carefully about how we can make increased capacity work,” she said.
