ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Carnival Cruise Lines is returning to the Port of Baltimore.

Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Thursday the cruise line will resume seven-day, year-round cruises beginning in March 2015.

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.
