What Carnival tend to do is focus on one particular area in their itineraries. That is to say they do not tend to put regions or countries together. So they are as they are displayed on the website. A cruise of the Caribbean does not also include the Bahamas or Bermuda and vice versa.

However you might want a Caribbean cruise, but want to also go to the Bahamas. In this case you would need to select another cruise line like for example Royal Caribbean. Here is an article on Royal Caribbean ships, departure ports and where they travel to if you are interested.
