If you are looking for a relaxing getaway or a fun new adventure from the West Coast I have a great option for you!
Sailing From Long Beach, California
Carnival Cruise Line has several great options sailing from Long Beach, California.
When you sail from Long Beach you can catch a view of the beautiful Queen Mary which is docked there.
The Carnival Panorama is one of their newest ships and offers some really great amenities such as the Sky Zone trampoline park, an amped up Waterworks, the Skyride (pedal through the sky!) and so much more!
Another option is the one I sailed on recently. The Carnival Sunrise may seem a little familiar and that’s because she was originally the Carnival Victory. The Victory was recently completely re-done and renamed to the Sunrise!
Since her remodel, the Sunrise now features a really great Waterworks (pictured below) and many other great amenities. It was a bit too chilly on our sailing to fully enjoy the water slides but we did enjoy drinking our cup of coffee while we strolled the decks.
Cloud 9 Spa
I visited the beautiful Cloud 9 Spa onboard to get a manicure. You will feel truly pampered there! They offer massages, have a hair salon, pedicures and manicures, and so much more. A favorite of many guests is the Thermal Suite (pictured). Note that spa services are an additional fee. But ask about the special Cloud 9 Spa staterooms that offer special access!
Entertainment on Ship
The Carnival Sunrise offers a lot of nighttime entertainment including the new Playlist Productions shows. You’ll be able to enjoy Broadway-style entertainment right there on the ship.
On this cruise we visited Catalina Island first. This is a beautiful island right off the coast of California. While there you can go horseback riding, zip line, and so much more.
Here is a view from our balcony while we were sailing away.
The next port we visited was Ensenada, Mexico. There we encountered some friends when we got off the ship!
This port has some really fun cultural activities to explore.
The most popular shore excursions visit La Bufadora, an amazing natural blowhole!
And just look at this gorgeous scenery!
Sailing from the West Coast can be a really great option if you are looking for something new and different or you live close by and want to drive to port.
