Carnival Cruise Lines expands West Coast cruise offerings

Good news! Carnival Cruise Lines expands capacity on the West Coast

Beginning January 26, 2014, Carnival Cruise Lines will expand capacity on the West Coast with the introduction of year-round three and four-day cruises on the 2,052-passenger Carnival Imagination from Long Beach, CA. With the additional capacity, there will be three Carnival Cruise Lines’ ships sailing from Long Beach.


We have lost a lot of cruise options sailing from Southern California over the last five years.  The increased capacity should help local cruise passengers get back on board.  – Carrie Finley-Bajak, Editor @CruiseBuzz


Carnival Imagination will offer three-day cruises to Ensenada, Mexico, departing on Thursdays and four-day voyages to Catalina Island and Ensenada departing on Sundays.  The vessel’s sister ship, Carnival Inspiration, will continue to offer a similar program from Long Beach with three-day cruises departing on Fridays and four-day cruises on Mondays.

Additionally, the seven-day Mexican Riviera and 15-day Hawaii programs from Long Beach currently operated by the Carnival Splendor through February 3, 2013 will continue on the Carnival Miracle seasonally from October 2013 through April 2014.  Together, these ships will carry approximately 550,000 guests annually from Long Beach.

New and Exciting!
