(5:25 p.m. EDT) -- Itching for a European getaway? Carnival Cruise Line has revealed a slew of new itineraries that include destinations such as Norway, Scotland, Ireland, Croatia, Portugal, Greece, Greenland and Iceland for summer and fall 2020.
The cruises onboard Carnival Legend will depart in June and early July; a repositioning cruise from Barcelona to Tampa departing on October 30 also will be offered. Carnival's itineraries announcement comes just weeks after it revealed it would return to Europe in 2020, with a series of Mediterranean cruises on Carnival Radiance (currently sailing as Carnival Victory).
