Carnival to Expand Capacity in Southern California for Short Cruises

Carnival Cruise Lines said today they would expand capacity at Long Beach by moving Carnival Imagination there for 3- and 4-day cruises beginning January 26, 2014.

Once repositioned, Carnival will operate three ships from Long Beach. Carnival Imagination will join Carnival Inspiration and Carnival Miracle which will continue to operate their respective programs from the Southern California port.

Carnival Imagination is currently sailing short cruises from Miami. Carnival Ecstasy, now operating from Port Canaveral, will reposition to Miami to assume Carnival Imagination's program of short cruises from Miami to the Bahamas.

Additional information will appear in today's edition of Cruise News Daily.
