Carnival Cruise Line is offering more choice with the announcement of three longer itineraries in 2019. These special one time sailings are part of Carnival Journeys where guests can enjoy unique experiences which regular itineraries don’t offer.
Two Carnival cruise ships will be offering the longer sailings including a 24-day trans-pacific crossing cruise on Carnival Splendor, a 13-day Panama Canal transit and a 14-day Hawaii cruise on Carnival Miracle. Let’s take a look at the details and what each ship is offering.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“We’re delighted to expand upon our itinerary choices with these three exciting Carnival Journeys, including an unforgettable 24-day voyage trans-Pacific transit featuring our first-ever calls to spectacular ports in the Far East.”
Longer Carnival Splendor Itinerary
The Carnival Splendor will make history by departing on the longest ever single Carnival itinerary. The ship will set off from Long Beach, California on October 5, 2019, to begin a one time 24-day trans-pacific voyage ending in Singapore on October 30, 2019.
This cruise will be like no other the cruise line offers which will feature calls in Guam, and Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam for the very first time. The ship will also include extended stays in Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii. A traditional ceremony will be held onboard the Carnival Splendor as an extra day is added by passing the International Date Line.
Longer Carnival Miracle Itineraries
The Spirit class ship will offer two different Carnival Journeys sailings. The first will be a 13-day cruise departing Tampa, Florida on September 29, 2019. The voyage will transit through the Panama Canal along after an overnight call in Cartagena, Colombia. After the transit the ship will visit Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala; and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and then will arrive in Long Beach, California on October 12, 2019.
Carnival Miracle’s 14-day long cruise will be a round-trip to Hawaii and back departing Long Beach on October 19, 2019. The ship will call in Maui, Honolulu, Kona, and Hilo along with a visit to Ensenada, Mexico. The Carnival cruise ship will arrive back in Long Beach, California on November 2, 2019.
Carnival Splendor is the only one in her class in the Carnival fleet at 113,300 gross tons and with a guest capacity of over 3,000. Carnival Miracle is a Spirit class vessel at 88,500 gross tons and carrying over 2,100 guests at double occupancy.
