Carnival Panorama Suffers Propulsion Issue

Carnival Panorama will be late returning to Long Beach, California on Saturday in what the line is calling a technical issue with propulsion. Panorama is now set to be back at 10 am, also delaying the departure later that afternoon. 

Carnival is reimbursing change fees up to $200 per person if passengers’ airfare was not booked through the cruise line. 

In 2019, sister ship Carnival Vista also suffered technical issues which required a overhaul of the propulsion system. 

Panorama is currently sailing seven-night Mexican Riviera cruises from southern California.
