Carnival Panorama completes sea trials ‘with flying colours’

Carnival Panorama has successfully completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea ahead of its inaugural cruise from Long Beach, California, in December when it becomes Carnival's first ship on the West Coast in 20 years.

Currently in the final stages of construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Panorama has a full contingent of officers, technicians and engineers on board who thoroughly tested the ship’s technical, mechanical and navigation systems.

“Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition to the fleet and she passed all of her manoeuvres and tests with flying colors. We can’t wait to welcome guests aboard this beautiful ship,” said Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo.

As the newest ship in the fleet, Carnival Panorama will offer innovations such as the first Sky Zone trampoline park at sea and a new ChooseFun WaterWorks aqua park, as well as popular onboard venues like Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse Brewhouse, featuring BBQ favourites created by Food Network star and longtime partner Guy Fieri, and craft beers brewed on board. 

The 133,500-ton ship will also offer a variety of accommodation choices including the tropics-inspired Havana area with colourful staterooms and its own Cuban-themed bar and pool; Family Harbor with extra-roomy staterooms and the Family Harbor Lounge; and Cloud 9 Spa staterooms with special amenities and privileges.

Following an inaugural three-day voyage to Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach on 14 December.
