Itinerary for Carnival’s new Panorama cruise ship includes several Mexican ports

The largest cruise ship of the Vista line will arrive at the port of Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, Carnival Corporations reported.

Their new Carnival Panorama, which will make its inaugural trip in 2019, will sail from Long Beach and will reach some of the main tourist destinations in Mexico.

The boat will feature attractions such as the SkyRide, WaterWorks and SportSquare water park as well as the Fahrenheit 555 Bonsai Sushi restaurants, Ocean Plaza, a bookstore-bar, a spa and a Cuban-style bar with a pool.

With an investment of $800 million dollars, it has a size of 133,500 GT (gross tonnage) and a capacity of up to 4,716 passengers with 1,991 rooms.

The Panorama will have a length of 322 meters long and can reach 23 knots (43 km / h) with a crew of 1,450 people.

The anticipated cost of a 7-day trip on the Panorama, depending on the class, will range from $469 USD per person up to $1,269 USD or around 24,200 peso.

The Itinerary that includes Mexico significantly strengthens cruise tourism in these ports, said the head of the Secretariat of Tourism, Economy and Sustainability of Baja California, Luis Genaro Ruíz Hernández.

He added that cruise tourism in these regions is increasingly strengthened, because at the beginning of this year there was a triple arrival in Los Cabos, a port that this year has received 221 ships.

Carnival Panorama will be the first new ship from Carnival to be based in Southern California in 20 years.
