Carnival Returns to San Diego

By Karen Robes Meeks

For the first time in seven years, Carnival Cruise Line will be returning to the Port of San Diego with the arrival of the 963-foot long Carnival Miracle.

Starting December 1, 2019, Carnival Miracle will offer 10 voyages from the Port of San Diego, launching with a seven-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera featuring stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas.

“The Port of San Diego is thrilled to welcome Carnival Cruise Line back,” said Rafael Castellanos, chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners. “The partnership between the port and Carnival offers cruisers more travel options while providing even more economic benefit to the region.”

Other Carnival offerings include a pair of 15-day special Carnival Journeys voyages to Hawaii, two five-day cruises to Cabo San Lucas and two three-day getaways to Ensenada. There will also be a four-day New Year’s Baja Mexico cruise leaving San Diego on December 30. A six-day cruise with two days in Cabo San Lucas and a day trip to Ensenada will be leaving from San Diego on January 6, 2020.

Lastly, a 13-day Panama Canal Carnival Journeys cruise will depart from San Diego on February 1, 2020, and arrive in Miami on Valentine’s Day.
