On March 23, 2023, Carnival Cruise Line opened reservations for the inaugural season of its next new ship, Carnival Firenze. The ship will begin sailing year-round from Long Beach, California starting in May 2024 through April 2025.

Carnival Firenze is named after the spectacular city of Florence, Italy. She was designed to evoke the same charm and beauty found in Florence and she’ll also pack in plenty of Carnival fun, which will be brought to life by the friendly and dedicated team members that make cruises across our fleet memorable,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“This truly stunning ship will serve as a great new cruise vacation option from Long Beach, joining Carnival Panorama and Radiance, and offering a range of sailing lengths to Baja Mexico and the Mexican Riviera,” Duffy continued in a press release.

Itineraries aboard Carnival Firenze for her inaugural season
