Set sail as thousands of seafaring Americans have, when you book a Carnival cruise from the 400-year-old seaport of Norfolk. It’s now the proud home of a sparkling waterfront filled with green parks, festive shopping malls, delicious restaurants… and even fascinating maritime museums and monuments. Before you cruise from Norfolk, you’ll find yourself near two colonial villages — Colonial Williamsburg and Olde Towne Portsmouth — plus miles of beaches, and a blooming botanical garden.
