Carnival Panorama Nearing Completion as Crew Prepares for Maiden Voyage in December

by CStromfeld

Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Panorama, is entering the final stages of construction with interior and exterior outfitting being completed and crew members beginning to arrive at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy in preparation for its repositioning to southern California and her Dec. 11, 2019 inaugural voyage. The third in the highly successful Vista-class, Carnival Panorama will be the line’s first new ship homeported on the West Coast in 20 years.

Spaces like the multi-level atrium with a stunning Dreamscape LED display, the Choose Fun-themed WaterWorks aqua park and tropics-inspired Havana section are nearly completed. Carnival Panorama will also be the first cruise ship to offer a Sky Zone trampoline park.

Led by Housekeeping Managers Sasa Jovanovic and Clayton Clarence, the ship’s housekeeping team is already on site ready for the loading of stateroom amenities, including nearly 6,000 mattresses, 13,000 pillows, 43,000 sheets and 100,000 towels. 

Carnival Panorama is scheduled to enter service Dec. 11 with a three-day inaugural voyage to Ensenada followed by the launch of year-round seven-day cruises featuring popular Mexican Riviera ports including Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas beginning Dec. 14, 2019.
