Carnival Panorama – Carnival’s first new ship on the West Coast in 20 years – is showcased in a virtual tour that highlights the fun and unique experiences aboard the vessel, set to debut from Long Beach this December. The virtual tour video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/7WZipjV3Fh4

The four-minute video tour is hosted by the ship’s cruise director Emma Nixon who takes viewers on a virtual journey throughout the vessel, from the groundbreaking aerial attraction SkyRide and the Choose Fun-themed WaterWorks aqua park to the first-ever Sky Zone trampoline park at sea, which was introduced during the Rose Parade earlier this year on the brand’s float.

Particular emphasis is placed on the ship’s varied dining and beverage options, with Nixon describing the offerings at Farhenheit 555 steakhouse, the family-style Italian restaurant Cucina del Capitano, JiJi Asian Kitchen, cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar and Bonsai Teppanyaki where she notes “guests are encouraged to play with their food.”  Nixon also pays a visit to the brand’s first interactive culinary studio, details of which will be revealed in the near future.

Next, it’s on to the ship’s entertainment venues including Piano Bar 88 – “a jukebox without the quarters” Nixon explains – Limelight Lounge, home to the Punchliner Comedy Club, and Liquid Lounge where the award-winning Playlist Productions shows are presented.  Fun facts such as Carnival hosting 27,000 comedy shows a year fleetwide are scrolled throughout the bottom of the video news-style.

Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, Carnival Panorama is scheduled to enter service Dec. 11, 2019, with a special three-day cruise from Long Beach then launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera service Dec. 14, visiting top resort destinations including Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.
