GALVESTON — Carnival Cruise Lines in 2015 will base a third ship year-round in Galveston, luring thousands of additional visitors to the island while marking the first time a cruise line has deployed three passenger liners in Texas.

The Miami-based company, which homeports the 3,690-passenger Magic and the 2,758-passenger Triumph in Galveston, said it would add the 2,974-passenger Carnival Freedom to that lineup in February, beginning with a special six-day Caribbean voyage before the start of year-round seven-day departures from Galveston.
