Carnival Cruise Line has announced that Carnival Panorama has officially successfully completed her sea trials and they have released some stunning photos too.
Carnival Panorama Completes Sea Trials
Earlier this week Carnival’s newest cruise ship the Carnival Panorama completed its sea trials in the Adriatic Sea. During this important phase of construction, the ship undergoes several maneuvers along with testing propulsion systems and technical aspects which can only be tested at sea.
Carnival Panorama Captain Carlo Queirolo said:
“Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition to the fleet and she passed all of her maneuvers and tests with flying colors. We can’t wait to welcome guests aboard this beautiful ship.”
The cruise line released a batch of photos showcasing the new cruise at sea. These are the first official photos of Carnival Panorama at sea:
The third Vista-class vessel has already returned to the Fincantieri Marghera shipyard in Italy where the final stages of construction are now taking place. The majority of the work is taking place in the interior spaces. The ship will be brought alive and will begin to look like a floating hotel.
Usually a month or so before the ship debuts the crew will begin to arrive at the shipyard in preparations for Carnival Panorama’s first cruise. The ship will debut from Long Beach, Californian on December 11, 2019, with a special preview sailing.
After the preview sailing, the new vessel will launch year-round Mexican Riviera cruises on December 14, 2019. The ship will be calling at Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan.
Carnival Panorama will follow in the footsteps of sister ships Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon with the popular SkyRide feature where guest can peddle on the very top deck with ocean views. The ship will introduce the first Sky Zone indoor trampoline park at sea and a new Choose Fun water park.
The Carnival ship will be 133,500 gross tons with a guest capacity of just over 4,000 at double occupancy. Still, plenty to look forward to including the ship being delivered from Fincantieri to Carnival.
