The only place I have seen them is on a vacations web site- search for cruise discounts and you'll find a web site that starts with that, and then you will be set to go. (I think we cannot link to these web sites).

Usually in April/May and September/October on the West Coast. The lines pull their Alaska ships south for the winter. Less common are the Panama Canal cruises. You can also find European ones if you look hard enough.

The Spirit does Hawaii/Vancouver between her Mexico/Alaska cruises.
HAL and Princess does several a year. The good thing about HAL and Princess is that once you have sailed Carnival you can get past guest rates on the lines.

Has to be some on the East Coast also.

The Elation is doing a Panama canal repo at the end of April.

Seach repositioning cruises on most any website.

Its the Panama cruise. Just search by ship on the Carnival site.

OP there is only one TA, this one, so maybe thats why you arent finding them for Carnival.

Carnival tends to not do re-po cruises for these type things. They just do a quick one or two day empty run to move the ship instead of selling an cruise that must include foreign ports. They do the same thing every year when they move a ship north to New York for the Canada cruises. They run empty from Miami to Charleston, do a cruise their, then sail empty up to Norfolk and do a cruise there, then sail empty again up to New York. Occasionally they do a Panama Canal when moving ships. But mostly Carnival just moves the ship and gets it over with.

To board passengers at one USA port and drop them off at a different port requires a stop at a distant foreign port. The nearest ones from the east coast that qualify are Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire or ports in South America. Repositioning a ship through the Panama Canal can easily call on one of these ports, Cartagena being the easiest but when sending a ship from Miami to Charleston it would require a nine or ten day itinerary to reach one of the required ports. It is more profitable for Carnival to just sail the ship empty and start a six or seven day itinerary at the new port.

The Glory out of Charleston in May is a resposition cruise. It will eventually be based out of NY.
