Carnival Panorama was welcomed with open arms when it arrived on the West Coast.

Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White served as the godmother and officially named the ship during the ceremony.

White spoke about her passion for cruising and the incredible commitment she shares with Carnival Cruises to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Furthermore, she also reminded people of her passion for the relationship carnival have with Wheel of Fortune, which she has been co-host of for 37 years now.

In addition, she revealed a series of letters which spelt our ‘Panorama’ before releasing a bottle of Moet to officially name the ship.

White said, “I’m incredibly flattered and honored to be the godmother of this ship.

“Naming Carnival Panorama was truly a special moment, and one I will never forget. I look forward to sailing on her in the future.”

The festivities also included a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Carnival Kitchen, a first-in-fleet culinary center that offers more than 15 different interactive cooking, baking and decorating demonstrations. 

Alongside Christine Duffy, the Carnival President, during the ribbon cutting were the “Culinary All Stars”. Namely, they included Rudi Sodamin who will have his own Seagrill on the new Mardi Gras when it debuts next year.

“One of the things we are most proud of is the delicious food we offer across our fleet,” Duffy said. “To celebrate Carnival Panorama’s inaugural with our very own ‘Feast of Fun’ featuring our amazing culinary team both on board and through our partnerships really added to the celebration.”

The grand opening of the first Sky Zone trampoline park was also celebrated during the occasion.

Furthermore, the day included the return of the Carnival AirShip, a 128-foot-long blimp with a huge fireworks display which lit up the sky during the event.
