Hi Cruisers, In this video I sit down with Micca the awesome Cruise Director on the Caribbean Princess. We are aboard the Caribbean Princess for a 10 night cruise to the Panama Canal, and Micca was kind enough to sit with us for a quick chat about himself, and the Caribbean Princess renovations. The Caribbean Princess has recently been refurbished, and we thought Micca was the perfect person to give us the inside scoop about what cruisers should expect from the upgrades. Micca, whose first name is actually Michael, is a super nice guy that embodies the fun spirit of the Caribbean Princess. If you find yourself on the Caribbean Princess, take the time to say hello.

Hi Cruisers, In this video we take a look at the newly renovated Long Beach Cruise terminal, but first check out our wonderful sponsor: CruiseLine.com

We just returned from a terrific weekend in Long Beach California where we visited the newly renovated, and highly anticipated Long Beach cruise terminal. I was pretty excited about this, and I’ve gotta to say I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t believe how awesome this new space is. They really put a lot of thought into utilizing the space in a functional yet beautiful fashion. It feels open and natural kind of like a park. You’re not going to feel like you’re sitting in a bus station or airport at the Long Beach cruise terminal. Only time will tell how efficient the new design will be, but I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a whole lot faster that it was. During the reopening event we also got some fantastic news about a future ship coming to the Long Beach cruise terminal. You don’t even have to watch the video. I’ll tell you right now (because it’s so exciting) Carnival’s new Vista class ship Panorama will be coming directly to the Long Beach cruise terminal in 2019! So cool.

Breaking news! Carnival Panorama will home port, direct from the shipyard, in Long Beach, California.

What do you think west coast cruisers?

With the expansion, Carnival is now utilizing 100% of the dome, up from a portion, for its operations. The renovation of the Long Beach Cruise Terminal more than doubles the size of the facility’s space while dramatically enhancing the overall passenger experience and operational flow. It also includes the expansion of portside shore power to enable larger ships to plug into the local electric grid, reducing exhaust emissions while docked.
The terminal’s striking design features California’s recognizable landmarks, bringing indoors the state’s iconic natural elements, including a backdrop of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range. In a nod to the dome’s former tenant, a replica of the Spruce Goose hangs from above, as well as the original model of the plane used in the 2004 movie, “The Aviator.” The dome also includes the cruise industry’s first 1980s-style arcade which is available for families to enjoy.
