LONG BEACH, CA. - Carnival Cruise Lines announced today that the Carnival Splendor will be arriving back to its home port of Long Beach, California by February 19, 2011.
The Splendor experienced an engine fire last November while on a voyage to the Mexican Riviera. The ship remained afloat and crippled for over 4 days at sea while tug boats scrambled to tow it back to San Diego for debarkation.
The cruise ship is currently being repaired at dry dock in San Francisco, California and will make its voyage back into service near Los Angeles to commmence it's 2011 itinerary.
"We are excited to have the Carnival Splendor back in service to provide our west coast product," announced Vicki Tomasino, Vice President of Sales, Western Region. An event will be planned pierside Saturday evening February 19th to welcome the cruise ship back to Long Beach. "We will be inviting our travel partners, business associates, CVB and Chamber of Commerce from Long Beach and San Diego. Additionally, invitations will be extended to those involved in the ship's rescue, such as the US Coast Guard and officials from the Port of Long Beach and Port of San Diego," added Tomasino.
