When the Carnival Pride returns to Baltimore next spring, it will not only have new pollution-control technology and a $500 million makeover. The ship also will have a new itinerary of extended cruises to the Caribbean. Carnival Cruise Lines, which agreed this year to continue its round-trip service from Baltimore beginning in March 2015, will offer longer sailings to the Caribbean for the first time and a shorter getaway to the Bahamas. Carnival plans to continue its seven-day sailings from Baltimore to the Bahamas and the eastern Caribbean, and will add a number of cruises with special itineraries, including a series of 10- to 14-day trips between Baltimore and San Juan, Puerto Rico, with ports of call that include an exotic array of Caribbean destinations.

The days when people bragged about taking a cruise to the Caribbean are long gone. The afterglow from a week at sea with all-you-can-eat amenities topped off with a tan is gone as well. And the EPA has nothing to do with it ("Carnival has plans to ship out of port," June 28). Anyone who has been half-aware of the news headlines over the last year has noticed a gigantic spike in cruise ship mishaps. We've watched as an Italian ship cruising off the Mediterranean coast literally re-enacted the story of the Titanic.

When Carnival Cruise Lines decided to leave Baltimore last summer, saying the port had become too expensive because of environmental regulations, it was with substantial regret. The world's largest cruise line regularly filled its Carnival Pride cruise ship at the port of Baltimore with affluent first-time cruisers who found the Mid-Atlantic jumping-off point convenient. Meanwhile, Maryland saw about $50 million a year in economic value from the ship. After hearing the Pride would be heading to Florida to cut costs, state officials immediately began trying to salvage the relationship.

It seems strange to celebrate the return of a ship that hasn't left yet, but that's what the recent announcement that the Carnival Pride will be sailing out of Baltimore beginning in March of 2015 amounts to. Last summer, Carnival Cruise Lines announced the ship would begin sailing out of Tampa, Florida beginning this November, and now, like a reliable snow bird, it's planning a return to Northern climes after just a few months in the Sunshine state....

Pride will only leave the port of Baltimore for a few months. Carnival Cruise Lines announced Thursday that its Carnival Pride cruise liner will return to the port of Baltimore in March 2015, after only a brief stint in Florida, thanks to new technologies that will help the ship meet federal emissions standards. Its return limits the economic impact of a decision in June, when the Miami-based company said it would move the Pride to Tampa starting in November 2014 due to increased costs of operating in coastal waters under the new regulations.

Federal regulators have reached a tentative deal with Carnival Corp. on a plan to reduce air pollution from nearly a third of its cruise ships, but the accord comes too late to reverse at least a temporary loss of lucrative cruise business for Baltimore. Under the agreement, to be announced today, the Miami-based company pledged to install pollution control equipment on 32 of its ships over the next three years and use it while they cruise in waters near the U.S. coast. During that time, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Coast Guard will exempt those vessels from a pending requirement that they burn less-polluting fuel.
