The ship will then launch a summer program of week-long Glacier Bay and Glacier Route Alaska voyages, followed by two 12-day Hawaii cruises, marking the first time that a Carnival ship has been deployed in those markets. The ship will sail on a 14-day Panama Canal cruise departing Oct. 20 from San Diego to Miami, where it is scheduled to operate a unique eight-day Caribbean program beginning Nov. 3.
