Another 14-Day Quarantine to Begin for Diamond Princess Crew Members

While everyone is thinking of the disembarked Diamond Princess passengers, another 14-day quarantine is starting for the crew members.

Work has started on expanding the Carnival Cruise Line Long Beach terminal.

The Miami-based cruise line and the city of Long Beach have started work on renovating the terminal. The enhanced multi-million dollar terminal facility will be able to cater for larger cruise ships and more passengers. A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the port which was attended by key executives involved in the project.

Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Strategic and Commercial Port Development Carlos Torres de Navarra, said:

“The start of construction on this project further cements our commitment to the City of Long Beach and the outstanding relationships we have built with the leaders and people of this community.”

“Our operations bring tremendous economic benefit to this area and expose hundreds of thousands of people a year to this great city. These new terminal enhancements will further grow that positive impact,” he added.

The terminal refurbishment will increase the space from 66,000 square feet to 142,000 square feet. The expansion and new design will allow for a dramatically enhanced passenger experience and operational flow within the terminal.In addition, the project includes the expansion of portside “cold-ironing” to enable larger ships to plug into the local electric grid to reduce exhaust emissions while docked. Further enhancements to the area surrounding the geodesic dome which houses the cruise terminal and the adjacent Queen Mary attraction are also planned.

Currently, Carnival operates three ships from the Long Beach Cruise Terminal — Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Imagination, which offer three- and four-day Baja cruises, and Carnival Miracle which operates week-long Mexican Riviera voyages along with 14- and 15-day cruises to Hawaii and Alaska.  In 2018 when the larger Carnival Splendor replaces Carnival Miracle, the line will carry more than 700,000 guests annually from Southern California, operating nearly 250 three- to 14-day cruises a year.
