Carnival’s Newest Ship – Panorama

Carnivals Newest ShipCarnival Panorama, the newest ship in Carnival’s fleet, boasts a guest capacity of more than 4,000 passengers, with a length of 1,055 feet and crew of 1,450. With 789 inside cabins and 1,215 outside cabins, Carnival Panorama supersedes her sisters Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon. Carnival Panorama will be Carnival’s biggest ship in its fleet until the much-anticipated Carnival Mardi Gras debuts in 2020.

Christened in December 2019 by Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White, the Carnival Panorama will be the first new Carnival ship homeported on the West Coast in 20 years.  The Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from the Long Beach Cruise Terminal departing every Saturday on week-long voyages to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas.

With the Carnival Panorama’s year-round deployment, cruisers on the west coast will have the opportunity to experience one of the biggest ships in Carnival’s fleet without getting on a cross-country flight.

One of the big changes that you’ll see onboard this ship that you won’t find on the Vista class ships is the replacement of the IMAX theater space with a new trampoline park exclusive to Carnival Panorama – Sky Zone. This one-of-a-kind trampoline park is the first entertainment venue of its kind at sea. 

Other unique amenities found on the ship include – SkyRide, a bicycle suspended 150 feet in the air, Waterworks Aqua Park inspired by Shaquille O’Neal, the Cloud 9 Spa with treatment rooms, a salon, a fitness center, and a thermal suite. 

There are plenty of stateroom options to choose from. Carnival Panorama has approximately 40 more staterooms from her sisters.  You’ll get the option to choose from staterooms categorized as interior, ocean view, balcony, suite, Family Harbor staterooms catering to traveling families, the exclusive Havana cabin section with its own private pool.  

Also new for a Carnival ship and already one of the most popular activities onboard is Carnival Kitchen, a dedicated space for cooking classes. The classes are fun, not at all pretentious, and you get to eat what you make.

There will be two new theatrical shows: Broadway Beats and Rock Revolution.  Broadway Beats presents favorite show tunes against a background of NYC-style urban rhythm, with street-style art as an added bonus. Rock Revolution channels Woodstock for inspiration but adds in some modern-day fun with the addition of drones on stage. 

Throughout the ship you’ll find plenty to keep you busy and entertained, from comedy clubs to game shows to a relaxing spa to and the never-ending excitement of the casino, and much more!

Vista-class ships have proven popular since their inception, and Carnival Panorama is a great addition to the lineup.
