Setting sail in April of 2024 and for the first time, Carnival Cruise Line will take you on a 31-day voyage that will embark in Australia and end on the west coast of the United States.
The 31-day transpacific cruise aboard the Carnival Luminosa is the longest voyage in Carnival Cruise Line’s history and is one of its Carnival Journey cruises.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, had this to say about the itinerary for this adventure, “This itinerary reads like a travel lover’s wish list. This transpacific voyage on Carnival Luminosa is a truly unique offering. As we continue to grow our fleet and our offerings, our team is taking every opportunity to create exceptional new experiences for our guests. This sailing is a perfect testament to that.”
Carnival Luminosa will set sail on her transpacific voyage on April 1, 2024, from her current homeport of Brisbane, Australia. There will be six sea days before her first port in Guam. Days 9 and 10 will be fun days at sea and day 11 will bring a full day in Naha, Okinawa, Japan. This will mark the first time Carnival Cruise Line has visited this historical destination.
