Carnival Cruise Line is readying its Carnival Panorama cruise ship for its highly-anticipated expansion of Mexico cruises.
Carnival Panorama has completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea in anticipation of its launch from Long Beach, Calif. in December.
It will be the brand’s first new ship on the West Coast in 20 years.
“Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition to the fleet and she passed all of her maneuvers and tests with flying colors. We can’t wait to welcome guests aboard this beautiful ship,” said Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo.
Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day cruises to the Mexican Riviera beginning Dec. 14.
Those cruises will include stops in Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan.
