Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans for its three longer-length Carnival Journeys itineraries in 2019, with a transpacific crossing, a Panama Canal transit and a cruise to Hawaii on tap.
The 24-day transpacific crossing will take place aboard Carnival Splendor and sail from Long Beach to Singapore. Two of the itineraries will be operated by Carnival Miracle: a 13-day Panama Canal transit from Tampa to Long Beach and a 14-day Hawaii cruise roundtrip from Long Beach.
The 24-day voyage is the longest single departure in Carnival Cruise Line’s history, the cruise line said, and marks the first time that the line will visit Guam, Vietnam and Malaysia on a North American departure.
Guests sailing on Carnival Journeys cruises can enjoy onboard activities during which they can sample local cuisine and enjoy entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on topics such as photography, cooking, arts and crafts and celestial navigation, along with a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day,” are also offered.
24-Day Transpacific Crossing on Carnival Splendor
The 3,012-passenger Carnival Splendor will operate the 24-day transpacific crossing that will depart Long Beach, CA, on October 5 and arrive in Singapore October 30, 2019.
The voyage will include extended port calls at Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii, before crossing the International Date Line and visiting Guam; Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia; and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – the first time the line has visited these destinations on a ship departing from North America.
The 24-day voyage will also offer a traditional ceremony held when mariners cross the International Date Line.
13-day Panama Canal, 14-Day Hawaii Carnival Journeys Cruises
Carnival Miracle will operate a 13-day Carnival Journeys Panama Canal transit that will depart Tampa September 29 and arrive in Long Beach October 12, 2019, positioning the vessel for a series of seven- and 14-day cruises from that port.
The 13-day cruise will include an overnight stay in Cartagena, Colombia, prior to the Panama Canal transit, followed by calls at Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Carnival Miracle will also operate a 14-day Carnival Journeys cruise to Hawaii roundtrip from Long Beach October 19 to November 2, 2019, with stops at four destinations within the Aloha State – Maui, Honolulu, Kona and Hilo – along with a call at Ensenada, Mexico.
The ship will also offer a series of seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach beginning October 12, 2019. The week-long voyages visit Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
