The giant cruise ship is said to be suffering from a propulsion problem that will impact its upcoming itinerary.
Passengers set to embark on a 7-day Mexican Riviera cruise this coming weekend October 2, 2021, were notified via email that the Panorama is having technical difficulty.
Dear Carnival Panorama Guest,
As you get ready for your cruise, wo want to let you know that Carnival Panorama is
experiencing an issue that is affecting the ship's maximum cruising speed. As a result,
we have reversed the order of our port visits and modified the port times. These changes will be reflected on Carnival.com within 24 hours and, at that time, you can log on to MY CRUISE MANAGER for full details. Pre-purchased Carnival shore excursions will be automatically adjusted on board for
the October 2, 2021, sailing, and prior to sailing for the remaining dates.
We sincerely apologize for this unexpected change in plans and look forward to
welcoming you aboard soon.
The Carnival Panorama had its inaugural sailing on December 11, 2019, just prior to the beginning of the pandemic. It is the newest ship to port out of Long Beach for the Carnival corporation.
The Panorama stops in the Mexican ports of Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and Puerto Vallarta on it’s weekly sailing to the Mexican Riviera.
The ship has been reportedly having this propulsion issue since returning to service last month.
Other than itinerary change there doesn’t seem to be any additional disruption to the service, or experience, as reported by recent cruise guests.
