Question is when will they take ownership and will there be a European season or TA.

Assuming the passenger capacity is the same or greater than Mardi Gras, which is almost 5,300, this is why Carnival has staggered arrival appointments and doesn't want everyone to show up at 11:00.

if only carnival can do something to enforce this, people will still up at 11am.

Just my two cents, I bet it will be Carnival (like in Rio). It just seems to be the theme.

Very pleased that the sister ship is in Miami.   There was some talk here she was going to Australia or China, but I poopoo’d that then.

I would have been stunned if the new ship went any where other than Miami or Canaveral.

Carnivale, as that was the second ship after Mardi Gras.

Agree, it was foolish to think otherwise, there are good reasons operationally as well (infrastructure).

Thank you, you know I stared at the sentence as it looked wrong. Should have looked up the correct spelling. I was thinking Carnivale as that was a Carnival ship and it fit the theme.

I think he meant THAT particular new ship.  He knows Carnival has put new ships in many ports.  That said, I have my doubts whether the west coast can support the Panorama with just one itinerary, but we will see.

Guess that means you’ll be coming to this side of the state sometime soon!

I think that is a fairly safe bet.....maybe sooner😉

Actually three. They do one journey cruise to AK in the summer. Then there's the two Hawaii journey cruises in April and October.

True enough, and I am sure those will sell very well.  It is the other 50+ weeks I am much more concerned with, esp in the colder months.

Having sailed the Splendor on this Itinerary twice, I'm not worried about them filling the ship. I am worried about having a place to park should I choose to do this again.

Not to belabor the point, but the Splendor failed in Long Beach...big time.  They had to significantly discount rooms to fill her.  That is why they brought a new ship back to the east coast.

Was that her first run out here or the second one? She was filled to the brim on both of my cruises in the last two years.
