Recommended Posts

Sunshine, Radiance and Sunrise are the 3 ships in the fleet that went through an immense refurbishment process.  The Sunshine (2018) used to be the Destiny (1996), the Sunrise (2019) used to be the Triumph (1999) and the Radiance (2021), which is coming out later this year used to be the Victory (2000).

Beautiful new ship and a fantastic sailing experience!  Plenty of space for the additional people.  Lots of great places to eat.  Fun ship with plenty of activities and entertainment.  The crew was great and we'd definitely sail again on the Panorama.

Panorama is in the same class as Vista and Horizon, but dropped the IMAX theater for a trampoline park, and added a cooking classroom where you can learn to make different dishes. The cooking class is quite fun, the bounce house if you are more than 8 years old, not so much.

She is new and beautiful.  We sailed on her in Feb. 2020 and had a great time.  The sky Ride is a must do.  I did it 2 times and I am 77 years old.  A real hoot.  Also many dining choices.

Did the Heroes Tribute bar essentially take the place of SkyBox sports bar for showing NFL, NBA games and the like?  And am I to assume that the Mardi Gras will be the same?

Yes, on Panorama. It's near the new cooking kitchen place and the casino. Mardi Gras is a build of the new Excellence Class so I don't know about that.

As Sanmarcosman mentioned, the Mardi Gras is the first of the two Excellence Class ships for Carnival.  On the MG, it's (Heroes Tribute Bar)  located in the Summer Landing zone.  https://www.carnival.com/cruise-ships/mardi-gras.aspx#zones/3

We had to cancel and rebook but excited to try once again to sail at the end of June. If not you guessed it rebook! We also moved the Mom birthday cruise to 2022 July, since it was my son't present to me and the time works for all of us. We are going to celebrate my birthday yet!

Linda, what makes you think that cruising will be starting up anywhere in the US on June 26, let alone the Panorama out of the west coast?  You do know that NCL has cancelled all cruises until July 1.

I did not say cruising would begin in June. I said we are hoping to sail and if canceled we will rebook. I am not clairvoyant and so I cannot say when any cruise line will sail from Long Beach. I am a hopeful person and if something does not come to pass I look for a positive. I am aware of current updates on the several cruise lines we are booked on. Sometimes looking for the good is not bad.

On a positive note, you have 600 in OBC to look forward to on your rebook.

Hi! Did you get the $600 in OBC for your next cruise because you paid for your cruise they cancelled, and they gave you fcc for the $ you paid instead of a cash refund to rebook? Makes sense. I chose not to pay the balance for a cruise we had booked for last November but then got $670 off to rebook and pay for this November. Hope it happens.

600$ for another cruise sounds like a lot. Hope you make the right choice and finally make it to enjoy it. Take a good care my friend and have a great cruise!

Just found this while packing for my vacation. Found this in the buffet area on Panorama Jan 18th 2020 sailing. I was also on a birthday cruise. Should be packing to go sailing. Can't wait to get back on Panorama.
