Carnival Cruise Line has received its 27th ship, and its third Vista-class vessel, the Carnival Panorama, from the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. The ship is headed to Long Beach, California, for its naming ceremony and inaugural sailing in December 2019.
“Carnival Panorama is the 15th ship built by Fincantieri for Carnival Cruise Line and once again, the skill and hard work of hundreds of talented craftspeople are on display here aboard the beautiful Carnival Panorama,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Our guests absolutely love Carnival Vista and Horizon and we are certain they are going to love their sister Carnival Panorama.”
Carnival Panorama will launch a year-round service from Long Beach on 11 December 2019, becoming the line’s first new ship to homeport on the west coast of the USA in more than 20 years.
Carnival Panorama’s unique features include the first Sky Zone trampoline park at sea. There will also be a first-in-fleet culinary studio where guests can participate in hands-on cooking classes, tastings and other food-related activities hosted by the ship’s chefs.
The ship also offers guest favourites like the WaterWorks aqua park; Sky Ride biking in the sky which gives riders unique views of their surroundings; and a suspended ropes course.
Dining venues include Bonsai Teppanyaki and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse Brewhouse, which offers barbecue favourites from Food Network star and long-time Carnival partner Guy Fieri, along with craft beers brewed on board.
Accommodation includes spa staterooms with exclusive privileges at the Cloud 9 Spa. There are extra-spacious staterooms in Family Harbor and tropical-inspired Havana staterooms with access to a Cuban-themed bar and pool.
