CCL-Carnival Cruise Line is the first cruise ship operator to resume sailings from California since the industry-wide pause 17 months ago.
A #BackToFun celebration was held in the terminal prior to sailing as part of the festivities. Christine Duffy (CCL's President) and Luca Lazzarino (the ship's Captain) cut the ribbon to welcome guests back onboard.
CCL is the largest cruise ship operator on the West Coast USA with 3 liners operating 3- to 15-day roundtrip itineraries to ports in Hawaii and Mexico from Port Long Beach’s historic terminal. In addition to Panorama’s 7-day voyages, Carnival Miracle is scheduled to resume CCL’s short cruise program (starting in September) while the reconstructed Carnival Radiance (fka Carnival Victory) - following a USD 200 million drydock, will debut from Southern California in October 2021.
Carnival Panorama debuted from Long Beach in December 2019 and is the newest passenger liner on the West Coast offering a wide range of amenities, such as the Sky Zone (first-at-sea trampoline park), WaterWorks (some of the largest aquaparks at sea), SkyRide (aerial attraction), Carnival Kitchen culinary experience, the luxurious Cloud 9 Spa, and more.
