Carnival Cruise Line is offering the longest cruise in its history — a 24-day journey between Long Beach, California and Singapore. It also marks the first time the cruise line will visit Guam, Vietnam, and Malaysia on a North American departure.
“In addition to visiting some of the world’s most beautiful destinations, guests sailing on Carnival Journeys cruises enjoy unique on-board activities during which they can sample local cuisine and enjoy entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call,” the cruise line said. “Activities focusing on topics such as photography, cooking, arts and crafts and celestial navigation, along with a 1980s-themed ‘Throwback Sea Day,’ are also offered.”
Carnival Cruise Line is also introducing a 13-day cruise between Tampa and Long Beach that goes through the Panama Canal, as well as a 14-day round-trip cruise between Long Beach and Hawaii.
“We’re delighted to expand upon our itinerary choices with these three exciting Carnival Journeys, including an unforgettable 24-day voyage trans-Pacific transit featuring our first-ever calls to spectacular ports in the Far East,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
The 24-day Carnival Cruise Line voyage from Long Beach, California to Singapore
The maiden voyage of the Carnival Splendor’s route to Singapore will leave Long Beach on Oct. 5, 2019 and end up in Singapore on Oct. 30, 2019. The ship will have extended port calls in Maui and Honolulu, Hawaii before stopping in Guam, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
“On this fantastic seagoing adventure guests can visit ancient temples and other centuries-old landmarks and attractions and immerse themselves in Far East culture,” Carnival said. “The 24-day voyage will also offer a traditional ceremony held when mariners cross the International Date Line which essentially adds an extra day to the cruise.”
Carnival will also begin offering a series of seven-day Mexican Riviera cruises from Long Beach beginning Oct. 12, 2019, with stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas.
