Carnival Cruise Line’s latest ship Carnival Panorama will be homeported in Long Beach, Southern California, from December 2019.
The company said that this will be the first brand-new ship deployed on the West Coast of the USA in 20 years.
The 3,960-passenger Carnival Panorama, the third Vista-class ship in Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet, will offer seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach at the end of 2019.
Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri held a keel-laying ceremony for the 133,500-ton ship in early January 2018 in Marghera, Italy.
Apart from the Vista-class ships, Carnival Cruise Line has two more 180,000-ton vessels in its orderbook, scheduled to enter service in 2020 and 2022.
