Carnival Panorama successfully completed sea trials in the Adriatic and is the final stages of construction at Fincantieri's Marghera yard.

A full contingent of officers, technicians and engineers tested the ship’s technical, mechanical and navigation systems.

'Carnival Panorama is a wonderful addition to the fleet and she passed all of her maneuvers and tests with flying colors,' Carnival Panorama Capt. Carlo Queirolo said.

Long Beach service begins Dec. 11

The ship is due to operate its three-day inaugural cruise from Long Beach, California, on Dec. 11. Following that sailing to Ensenada, Carnival Panorama will launch year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera calling at Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlán.

Features include the first Sky Zone trampoline park at sea and a new 'Choose Fun' WaterWorks park inspired by the line’s Chief Fun Officer, NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal.
