Carnival Cruise Line is accepting reservations for the 133,500-ton Carnival Panorama, which kicks off a year-round, seven-day Mexican Riviera schedule from Long Beach, Calif., Dec. 14, 2019, becoming the first new Carnival ship homeported on the West Coast in 20 years.
Prior to the launch of seven-day service, Panorama will offer a special one-time, three-day cruise to Ensenada from Long Beach Dec. 11-14.
Carnival Panorama will offer a three-port, seven-day itinerary from Long Beach, departing every Saturday to destinations along the Mexican Riviera, including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.
Voyages will depart from the newly refurbished Long Beach Cruise Terminal (above), housed in a massive 146,000-square-foot geodesic dome that once housed Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose airplane. The expanded facility offers a streamlined embarkation and debarkation process along with stunning design elements that pay homage to the Golden State, including a mural of the Sierra Nevada mountains and replicas of the Spruce Goose.
