A major cruise line is returning to the Port of Baltimore after making changes to how it operates.

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley says Carnival Cruise Lines will resume seven-day, year-round cruises beginning in March of next year. The return comes after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard approved Carnival's plan to reduce ship emissions.

The O'Malley administration says the Carnival Pride ship will return to Maryland with new air emission reduction technologies.

The Maryland Port Administration says 500 jobs are generated by cruise activity in Maryland. They include 220 direct jobs at the Port of Baltimore.
