Carnival Panorama, the newest ship from Carnival Cruise Line, took another important step towards launch with the successful completion of its sea trials earlier this week. When the ship makes its inaugural cruise from Long Beach, CA, on December 11, it will be the first new ship from the cruise line on the West Coast in 20 years. 

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 onboard, who tested the ship’s technical, mechanical and navigation systems.

As the newest ship in the fleet, Carnival Panorama will offer amenities such as the first Sky Zone trampoline park at sea and a new ChooseFun WaterWorks aqua park inspired by the line’s Chief Fun Officer, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal, as well as returning onboard venues like Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse, serving BBQ favorites created by Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri and craft beers brewed onboard.

Following an inaugural three-day voyage to Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round, seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach December 14. The week-long adventures will visit seaside resort towns including Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan.
