Line’s  Newest Ship Set to Debut From Long Beach in December 2019

MIAMI (July 18, 2019) -- Carnival Cruise  Line’s newest ship, Carnival  Panorama, successfully completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea earlier  this week in anticipation of its inaugural cruise from Long Beach,  Calif.,  Dec. 11, 2019, becoming the line’s first new ship on the West  Coast in 20 years.

             Currently in the final stages of construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in  Marghera, Italy, Carnival Panorama had a full contingent of officers,  technicians and engineers on board who thoroughly tested the ship’s  sophisticated technical, mechanical and navigation systems.

  “Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition  to the fleet and she passed all of her maneuvers and tests with flying  colors.   We can’t wait to welcome guests aboard this beautiful  ship,” said Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo.

  As the newest ship in the fleet, Carnival  Panorama will offer innovations such as the first Sky Zone trampoline park at  sea and a new ChooseFun WaterWorks aqua park inspired by the line’s Chief Fun  Officer, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, as well as popular onboard venues  like Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse, featuring BBQ  favorites created by Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri and craft  beers brewed on board.  

  Carnival Panorama will also offer a  variety of accommodation choices, including the tropics-inspired Havana area  with colorful staterooms and its own Cuban-themed bar and pool; Family Harbor  with extra-roomy staterooms and the Family Harbor Lounge; and luxurious Cloud 9  Spa staterooms with special amenities and privileges.

  Following an inaugural three-day voyage to  Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera  cruises from Long Beach Dec. 14. The week-long adventures will visit  spectacular seaside resort towns including Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and  Mazatlan.
