Carnival Cruise Line’s next new cruise ship, Carnival Panorama, successfully completed sea trials earlier this week. Carnival Panorama is the cruise line’s 3rd Vista class ship and will debut in December 2019.
During sea trials, the cruise ship’s propulsion, speed, maneuverability, stabilizers, and safety features (fire suppression & life saving equipment) are all tested.
The 133,500-ton Carnival Panorama – the third in the highly successful Vista-class that includes Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon – is set to debut from Long Beach December 11, 2019, marking the first new Carnival Cruise Line ship homeported on the West Coast in 20 years.
Carnival Panorama will offer many of the innovative indoor and outdoor dining, bar, entertainment and activity options featured on Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon, including a suspended course, and a massive WaterWorks aqua park with corkscrew slides, a tipping bucket and other attractions promising lots of splash-tastic fun.
Smokehouse Brewhouse with BBQ favorites from Food Network star and longtime Carnival partner Guy Fieri, along with craft beers brewed on board, will be offered, as well.
A wide range of accommodations will also be available, including spa staterooms with exclusive privileges at the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa, extra-roomy staterooms in Family Harbor, and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms and suites with exclusive daytime access to a Cuban-themed bar and pool.
Carnival Panorama will make a special three-day voyage on December 11, 2019, followed by the launch of year-round Mexican Riviera cruises beginning December 14, 2019. (Cruise Fever will be on the December 11 sailing bringing you all the updates on Carnival’s new ship)
Voyages will depart from the newly renovated Long Beach Cruise Terminal and feature stops at popular destinations including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.
