Carnival Cruise Line Opens New Deployment From Long Beach, CA

Carnival Cruise Line has opened for sale future sailings from Long Beach, CA, on Carnival Panorama, Carnival Radiance and Carnival Firenze.

Carnival Panorama, which currently operates seven-day sailings, will now alternate between six- and eight-day itineraries departing Saturdays and Sundays. These sailings begin in the spring of 2025 and are now open for sale into the spring of 2026. The six-day sailings to Mexico will include itineraries calling in Ensenada and two days in Cabo San Lucas while the eight-day cruises will sail guests to Cabo San Lucas, La Paz, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta.

Alternating three- and four-night cruises, nearly 50 new getaways to Ensenada, are available on Carnival Radiance from the spring to the fall of 2025. The ship’s three-day weekend cruises departing Fridays visit Ensenada while the four-day cruises call in Ensenada and add a stop in Catalina Island.

Carnival Firenze, joining the fleet in Long Beach in May 2024, will offer four-day cruises visiting Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico as well as five-day Mexican Riviera cruises calling in Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada. These cruises are now open for sale between the spring and fall months of 2025. Carnival Firenze, named after Florence, becomes the second ship to offer "Carnival Fun Italian Style" experiences, following this year's arrival of Carnival Venezia sailing from New York. Carnival’s familiar venues complement several new, creative concepts—including Italian-themed restaurants, bars and entertainment—and unique architectural designs that embody the ship’s namesake. 

Cruises to the Mexican Riviera and Baja Mexico offer guests the chance to experience thrilling adventures and relaxing experiences alike, complemented by natural beauty and rich, immersive culture. Popular shore excursions enjoyed by guests year-round include a zipline adventure course that offers thrilling rides above the foothills of the Sierra Madre as well as an ATV ride that winds through the Guadalupe Valley and its rolling country hills filled with vineyards and olive trees.

Additional 2025-26 itineraries from other Carnival homeports will be announced in the coming weeks.
