Carnival Cruise Lines has made two exciting enhancements to its West Coast cruise operations, deploying two Spirit-class ships featuring a variety of Fun Ship 2.0 innovations as well as a huge number of balcony staterooms.
The new deployments include Carnival Miracle introducing year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera departures from Long Beach, beginning in October 2014, and Carnival Legend operating the line’s Alaska program from Seattle in May 2015.
Carnival Miracle and Carnival Legend will also offer four Hawaii cruises in 2015-16.
Carnival Legend recently underwent an extensive makeover that added a host of new features, including WaterWorks highlighted by Green Thunder, the fastest and steepest water attraction at sea, and the RedFrog Pub, a Caribbean-inspired watering hole serving the line’s private label draught brew, ThirstyFrog Red.
The full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurant offering Asian specialties and Cherry On Top, a confections and novelty store, were added, as well.
Carnival Miracle also offers a wide range of innovations, including the Serenity adults-only retreat featuring its own pool and full bar service, the Punchliner Comedy Club presented by George Lopez with up to 20 family friendly and adults-only shows each week, a wedding chapel, a luxurious 14,500-square-foot health and wellness facility, and an enclosed corkscrew water slide full of exhilarating twists and turns.
Carnival Miracle will also undergo a dry dock in March 2015 that will add a huge variety of additional Fun Ship 2.0 features.
Carnival Miracle and Carnival Legend each offer fun, supervised programs for children ages 2-17, as well as nearly 850 ocean view and balcony staterooms – perfect for viewing the beautiful passing scenery.
“Carnival is the leader in West Coast cruising with more ships and itineraries than any other cruise operator.
“With these new deployments, we’re providing two spectacular Fun Ship 2.0-equipped ships with even more fantastic features for our guests to enjoy, as well as additional opportunities to experience the rich diversity of this popular sailing region,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival president.
“Our travel agents partners have expressed an interest in a greater variety of West Coast options so we are very pleased to provide these attractive, value-packed ‘Fun Ship’ cruises to market to their clients,” he concluded.
