Carnival Miracle to Sail from San Francisco
How about a Carnival cruise from San Francisco on the U.S. west coast? The ship will sail 4-day to 15-day voyages from the city in 2020.
The ship will sail to Alaska, Hawaii, and Mexico which will expand Carnival operations even further after the upcoming Carnival Panorama will be based from Long Beach starting at the end of 2019.
Carnival Miracle will also sail from San Diego offering 3-day to 15-day voyages in the Winter 2020-21 season. These cruises will begin on October 4, 2020.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“Carnival is the number one cruise operator from the West Coast, and these new programs from San Francisco and San Diego, as well as the deployment of the brand new Carnival Panorama from Long Beach, speaks volumes to our confidence in growing this important market.”
The Spirit-class vessel’s first ever cruise from San Francisco will depart on March 19, 2020. The deployment will include 4-day cruises to Ensenada which will depart on Thursdays during the spring and summer season.
