San Diego will have more water to cruise come December 10. Carnival is replacing their eight-night cruise with new five-night and nine-night cruises to the Mexican Riviera.
Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO, explains, "Carnival Spirit's convenient new schedule from San Diego provides two distinctly different West Coast cruise choices - a value-packed five-day cruise and a port-intensive nine-day itinerary, both calling at world-class resort destinations along the Mexican Riviera."
Carnival says that both trips will have a two-day stop in Cabo San Lucas. The two day stop was chosen based on guest feedback--requesting more time to enjoy the popular cruise destination.
Additionally, Carnival announced the nine-night cruise will offer visits to the seaside destinations of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and La Paz. This will be the first time La Paz has been featured as a regular stop on a Carnival cruise.
The new nine-night cruises will depart on Fridays and return on Sundays, while the five night cruises will sail Sundays through Fridays.
