Carnival Cruise Line today announced its latest ship – Carnival Panorama – will be home ported in Long Beach, Southern California, from December 2019. This will be the first brand-new ship deployed on the West Coast of the USA in 20 years.
The 3,960-passenger Carnival Panorama, the third Vista-class ship in the fleet, will offer seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach at the end of 2019. This is the perfect destination for Carnival’s free-spirited, fun loving guests looking to cruise internationally. Reservations are expected to open late March 2018.
Like its name implies, Carnival Panorama will include onboard venues offering both indoor and al fresco experiences, including the Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, Library Bar, and Bonsai Sushi, along with open-air attractions like the groundbreaking bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction SkyRide, a massive WaterWorks aqua park, and the SportSquare recreation area.
Also featured will be a vibrant Havana section with tropics-inspired staterooms and its own Cuban-themed bar and pool, Family Harbor featuring extra-roomy accommodations, the Family Harbor Lounge, and Ocean Plaza, a spacious dining and entertainment venue with indoor and outdoor seating. Other innovations unique to Carnival Panorama will be announced in the near future.
Jennifer Vandekreeke, Carnival Cruise Line Vice-President, Australia said, “This is fantastic news for Australian cruise lovers who now have even more options to cruise from Long Beach – via just one direct flight to Los Angeles – to some incredible destinations around the Mexican Riviera.”
