Carnival Cruise Line has announced via Brand Ambassador John Heald that they will be returning to San Diego for the first time in seven years.


Carnival Miracle will deploy to the southern California city to operate a seasonal winter schedule of 3 to 15-day cruises from December 2019 to February 2020. The ship’s time in California will kick off with a 7-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera departing December 1, and will also include two longer Carnival Journeys voyages to Hawaii departing December 8 and January 17.

Miracle’s San Diego-based schedule also includes two 5-day cruises that spend two days in Cabo San Lucas, and two 3-day getaways visiting Ensenada. Her winter in San Diego will come to a close with a 13-day Panama Canal Carnival Journeys sailing that departs San Diego February 1 and arrives in Miami on February 14, 2020.

Carnival Journeys cruises are extended voyages that also include onboard activities that can’t be found on other Carnival voyages, including a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day” and photography, cooking, crafts, and celestial navigation classes.

Carnival Cruise Line has three year-round ships on the west coast, carrying over 500,000 guests annually from the newly renovated Long Beach Cruise Terminal. The line is also furthering their commitment to southern California in late 2019 when the brand-new 3,954-passenger Carnival Panorama launches year-round 7-day cruises from Long Beach - the first new ship to be based on the west coast in 20 years.
