See the Carnival Sunshine get welcomed to Port Canaveral and Space Coast

The Carnival Sunshine is the latest incarnation of the Carnival Destiny, which was once a ground breaking cruise ship when it first set sail in 1996. Now it's been completely redone with an overhaul so extensive that it needed a new name befitting what is essentially a new ship.

The Sunshine sailed to Port Canaveral, which is now its new home port. It will sail out on various itineraries, offering cruises starting at five nights throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean.

Click the video accompanying this article to see the Carnival Sunshine get an official welcome to its new home from Port Canaveral and Space Coast tourism officials. Port Canaveral is second only to Miami as Carnival's largest home base, and the Sunshine increases its presence even more.

I attended the on board presentation of the plaques, which was held before the two day media cruise to Freeport that kicked off the Carnival Sunshine's service from its new home port.

You'll find out more about shore excursions in Freeport in this article.
