On behalf of Carnival and the Celebration Key team, THANK YOU to everyone who joined us during our October 19, 2023 community event!  We had a great turn out filled with exciting and positive feedback on our project.  Here are the most recent local media press releases regarding Celebration Key:


Upcoming Event- F&B Townhall Nov 27, 2023.


Celebration Key is the first port destination exclusively designed for Carnival Cruise Line guests and its name is based on the vision for the destination to be a celebration of all that Carnival and The Bahamas has to offer for a memorable vacation.  The adjacent cruise pier will be able to accommodate up to two of Carnival’s Excel-class ships simultaneously to allow guests to walk off the ship and arrive at Celebration Key.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the destination was held in May 2022 and design, engineering, and construction work is now underway.

Once complete, Celebration Key will be capable of welcoming two million guests each year, with the first cruise calling on the destination in July 2025.


Many employment opportunities continue to be available for the Grand Bahama community throughout the remaining phases of the project – construction and operations.

For direct employment opportunities at Celebration Key, please visit our port for a list of all available positions in Grand Bahama.
