Florida-based cruise company Carnival Cruise Line has christened Carnival Panorama, the newest member of its fleet.

The newbuilding was named by Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White during a ceremony on board the cruise ship held in Long Beach earlier this week.

The 133,500 GT Carnival Panorama is the third Vista-class unit built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri for the cruise operator. Featuring a length of 323 meters, Carnival Panorama can accommodate more than 6,500 people on board, including staff.

The ship was handed over to Carnival at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Venice in late October this year.

It is Carnival Cruise Line’s first brand-new ship homeported in California and deployed on the West Coast of the USA in 20 years.

Following an inaugural three-day cruise, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round Mexican Riviera service from Long Beach, departing on week-long voyages to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.

Carnival Cruise Line, part of Carnival Corp & plc, has 27 ships operating voyages to The Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, Bermuda, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands. In addition, the line has two new ships scheduled for delivery – Mardi Gras in 2020 and an as-yet-unnamed ship in 2022.
