Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Panorama, completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea earlier this week in anticipation of its inaugural cruise in December 2019.
Currently in the final stages of construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Panorama had a full contingent of officers, technicians and engineers on board who thoroughly tested the ship’s technical, mechanical and navigation systems.
With the scheduled debut in Long Beach on December 11, the vessel will become the line’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 its maneuvers and tests with flying colors,” said Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo.
Following an inaugural three-day voyage to Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach on December 14.
