Due to high demand, Carnival Cruise Line has decided to add more sailings from San Francisco for its first-ever deployment from the city in 2020. These will be in addition to the Carnival Miracle cruises announced last month.

More Cruises from San Francisco

Carnival is adding five more sailings to Carnival Miracle’s San Francisco deployment in 2020. These newly announced sailings will be in addition to what the cruise line announced in December 2018.

The Carnival cruise ship will now be offering a total of 27 voyages which includes four-day long weekend sailings to Ensenada, Mexico, 10-day cruises to Alaska and 15- and 16-day voyages to Hawaii from March to September 2020.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:

“After seeing the incredible reaction to Carnival Miracle’s initial San Francisco sailings announcement last month, we knew we had to continue to Choose Fun and bring even more options to the West Coast.”

“And what better time to announce this amazing news than while the Carnival AirShip is flying over the city?”

Carnival is heavily expanding on the U.S. west coast with newly upgraded Long Beach cruise terminal and basing the new Carnival Panorama when she arrives at the end of 2019. The popular Carnival AirShip has even been doing a tour of California and the 128-foot-long blimp is even flying over San Francisco in conjunction with today’s announcement.

Here are the additional five voyages from San Francisco:

  • Aug. 20, 2020 and Sept. 3, 2020: four-day sailing to Ensenada, Mexico;
  • Aug. 24, 2020 and Sept. 7, 2020: 10-day sailing to Alaska throughout the Last Frontier calling at Juneau, Skagway and Icy Strait Point;
  • Sept. 17, 2020: 16-day Carnival Journeys sailing to Hawaii calling at Maui (Kahului), Honolulu, Hilo, and Kauai.
