Who’s excited about the Panorama?

Recommended Posts

We are sailing on the Panorama next May in a Havana cabin.  I’m getting super excited.  Who’s excited about their upcoming cruise to the Mexican Rivera?  What are your hopes and likes about this new ship?

We're excited.  We booked on the day it opened, lol.  It was such a good deal, we booked a B2B.  We're sailing in February with a Havana aft balcony.  We like sea days and usually staked out a spot in the serenity areas before, so we're looking forward to the Havana area.  We also really like the Alchemy bar, but on the other ships we were on, it was kind of a little more isolated than on the Panorama, but that might make it all the funner.  I also want to do the sky ride, and my cruise buddy will want to try out the skymaxx.  And we've never been to that side of Mexico, so we're looking forward to the ports.

I am very excited about it. We have two balconies booked for March 28. Taking the west coast edition of our grandchildren.    This will be our first cruise from West Coast.  All the others have been from Galveston or NOLA.

I'm always excited to sail on a new (to us) ship and Panorama sure fits that bill.  We'll be on her two Februarys in a row, with the 2021 sailing having us in a Havana Cabana. We live on the West Coast and usually have to settle for much older ships.  Getting a brand new ship is exciting.

We live close to LGB so it's great to have a new ship.

Boarding the Panorama on January 18, 2020. We are very excited for the new ship. This will be my sixth Mexican Riviera and the third for my wife. Best excursion we have been on would be Rhythms of the Night in Puerto Vallarta, I recommend this one big time.

How do you guys feel about being on a larger ship?  I think the Spirit class ships have the perfect balance of space.  I’m sure the Fantasy class ships have a special place in everyone’s heart also...

I'm excited about the Panorama being on the West coast but has anyone heard if this ship will make a couple of Hawaii trips or will carnival just stick with the Spirit class ships for these cruises?

We live in Florida, so I am not excited about Panorama, although I think it’s a good idea for Carnival to put a new ship on the Wesr coast. However, I am excited and looking forward to Mardi Gras.

We have booked Rhythms for our 02/20 cruise.  Have heard nothing but positive reviews. Always hoping to see more reviews of course.  Fun to anticipate. Since we will be celebrating our 40th anniversary, we are hoping the dinner at the show will offer us a chance for a nice “perfect spot” table for 2.  I’ll be in a panic about the return time to the ship...even though I realize the ship won’t leave without a Carnival excursion group. 😉

I think it got overshadowed a bit by the Mardi Gras, but I'm sure glad it's coming. It has definitely heightened my interest in a Mexican Riviera cruise. Can't wait!

You grab your own table, so sit at the back of the boat that takes you to the island so you can be among the first off.  Then once you walk past all the other fun and interesting things to get to the dining area, find a table that suits you.  I don't recall any tables being set aside for a romantic feel.  It isn't that kind of dining experience. It's a buffet.  And you'll be there with 100 of your closest Carnival friends so the boat will get you back to the ship in plenty of time. No need to panic. 🙂
