Yesterday Carnival Miracle arrived in Long Beach, Calif., following a 15-day Panama Canal cruise and began its new West Coast deployment with a seven-day cruise to Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas that departed Sunday afternoon.

Carnival Miracle will operate another week-long Mexican Riviera cruise then embark on a 15-day Hawaii voyage departing Long Beach April 14 and arriving Vancouver April 29, 2013, visiting Hilo, Kona, Nawiliwili, Kahului, and Honolulu.

Carnival Miracle will then offer a special eight-day Alaska cruise from Vancouver to Seattle, positioning the vessel for a summer schedule of seven-day Alaska cruises round-trip from Seattle May 7 to Sept. 10.  Those voyages will visit Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, as well as Victoria, British Columbia, and scenic cruising of Tracy Arm Fjord.

Upon the completion of its Alaska season, Carnival Miracle will offer another 15-day Hawaii cruise from Vancouver to Long Beach Sept. 17 to Oct. 2, then resume its Mexican Riviera program from Long Beach.  Carnival Miracle’s West Coast deployment also includes three round-trip Hawaii cruises from Long Beach departing Oct. 19 and Dec. 7, 2013, and Jan. 18, 2014.
