Representing a major construction milestone, Carnival Cruise Line’s signature red, white and blue winged funnel was recently set into position atop the new Carnival Panorama which is scheduled to enter service in December 2019.

Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, the 133,500-ton cruise ship will make her inaugural voyage from the Long Beach Cruise Terminal on Dec. 11, 2019 – marking the first new Carnival Cruise Line ship sailing from the West Coast in more than 20 years.

The third in the line’s extremely popular Vista-class, Carnival Panorama will offer a variety of exciting innovations including the SkyRide aerial attraction, a massive WaterWorks aqua park, the Family Harbor with extra-roomy accommodations and the Family Harbor Lounge and the tropics-inspired Havana section with a Cuban-themed bar and its own pool.

Following a special three-day cruise Dec. 11-14, 2019, Carnival Panorama will begin a schedule of a three-port, seven-day itineraries year-round from Long Beach beginning Dec. 14, 2019.  Voyages will depart every Saturday and feature stunning destinations along the Mexican Riviera, including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.
