(Alliance News) - Carnival PLC on Sunday said Carnival Cruise Line has set the first industry sail from the port of Baltimore since pause in operations due to coronavirus pandemic.

Carnival Pride departed on Sunday on a seven-day cruise to Bahamas, visiting Nassau, Freeport and the private island of Half Moon Cay.

The Miami, Florida-based cruise operator said Carnival Cruise Line launched the first year-round cruise program from Baltimore, Maryland in 2009 and since then has carried over one million customers.

Carnival said a newer ship, Carnival Legend, will replace Carnival Pride in Baltimore in November when Carnival Pride shifts to departures from Tampa, Florida.

"We're thrilled to be back in Baltimore, providing our guests with the relaxing vacation they've been so patiently waiting for but also supporting the local economy and offering our crew members an opportunity to support their families back home," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

Carnival shares were trading 0.6% higher in London on Monday at 1,502.34 pence each.
