Carnival’s Miracle will sail from San Diego beginning in late 2019. Destinations include Mexico and Hawaii

Southern California residents will have more opportunities to sail south of the border next year when Carnival Cruise Line returns to the Port of San Diego for the first time in seven years, offering a schedule of three- to 15-day voyages to Mexico.

Carnival, which already operates similar cruises out of the Port of Long Beach, will add San Diego to the roster when Carnival Miracle arrives in late 2019 in San Diego.

Miracle’s San Diego sailings will run from December 2019 to February 2020.


The schedule kicks off with a seven-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera (rates for an inside cabin start at $549 a person, double occupancy), departing Dec. 1, 2019.

It will be followed by two-week voyages to Hawaii (rates for an inside cabin start at $1,429 a person, double occupancy). These voyages, departing Dec. 8, 2019, and Jan. 17, 2020 will visit popular destinations throughout the Aloha State.

Other trips will include five-day Mexican voyages that spend two days in Cabo San Lucas, two three-day getaways visiting Ensenada and a four-day New Year’s Baja Mexico cruise.

The schedule concludes with a 13-day Panama Canal voyage from San Diego to Miami.
