The 3,012-passenger Carnival Splendor departed from Long Beach, California on an unprecedented 24-day trans-Pacific crossing and will arrive in Singapore October 30, 2019. The cruise will have a total of 17 sea days.

The voyage will feature extended port calls at Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii, before crossing the International Date Line, then visit Guam, and Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – the first time the line has visited these destinations on a ship departing from North America. On this fantastic seagoing adventure guests can visit ancient temples and other centuries-old landmarks and attractions and immerse themselves in Far East culture.

The 24-day voyage will also offer a traditional ceremony held when mariners cross the International Date Line.

The 24-day cruise is the longest single departure in Carnival Cruise Line’s history and marks the first time that one of their cruise ships will visit Guam, Vietnam and Malaysia on a North American departure.

In addition to visiting some of the world’s most beautiful destinations, guests sailing on Carnival Journeys cruises enjoy unique on-board activities during which they can sample local cuisine and enjoy entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on topics such as photography, cooking, arts and crafts and celestial navigation, along with a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day,” are also offered.

Once the cruise ship arrives in Singapore, the vessel will head to dry dock for a renovation. After a month in dry dock, Carnival Splendor will head to Australia and homeport in Sydney.

  1. The Splendor has the best crew on board. Special thank you to Ana who made sure our room was 100% every day. Santosa, Mohammad, and Jeffrey including each team made sure our experience was amazing and felt at home. To memorize our name which are not easy made it extra special. Beautiful smile from Desma was a perfect closure before heading to bed. For all those people on board heading on that amazing adventure you are in great hands. Splendor family who cruised the last Mexican Rivera trip . Give the cruise a 10.

  2. You lose a day when you cross the International Date Line going west. If you cross it on a Tuesday then you lose the rest of Tuesday and it becomes Wednesday.
