For the first time in its 46-year history, Carnival to offer cruises from San Francisco

You’ll soon be able to take a Carnival cruise out of San Francisco. 

Carnival on Tuesday announced it would offer a series of sailings out of the city in 2020 – something it has never done in its 46-year history.  

Kicking off March 19, 2020, the voyages will include four-night trips to Ensenada, Mexico, and five- and six-night trips to Ensenada, Catalina Island and San Diego. 

The voyages also will include 10- and 11-night Alaska cruises that feature calls at Juneau, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, Sitka and Tracy Arm Fjord.  

In addition, the line will offer a single 15-night Hawaii cruise out of San Francisco that features stops at four islands including Maui and Kauai.

The Mexico sailings will take place during the spring and summer of 2020. The Alaska cruises are scheduled for the summer of 2020. The Hawaii cruise will depart on April 16, 2020. 

The sailings will take place on the 2,124-passenger Carnival Miracle. 

Catering heavily to the drive-in market, Carnival is known for offering voyages from more “home ports” around the USA than any other line. On the West Coast, it already offers voyages from San Diego; Long Beach, California; Seattle; and Vancouver, B.C. 

With the addition of San Francisco, Carnival will operate from 19 ports in North America.
