This is a note to Carnival management regarding the 14-day January 9 cruise from Long Beach to Hawaii:
I suggest that if the Jan. 9. cruise is canceled because of Hawaiian restrictions (like what just happened to the November cruise), that Carnival consider NOT breaking those 14 days into small cruises out of Long Beach, and instead create a 14-day cruise doing a partial transit of the Panama Canal, accessible from the Pacific side. In addition to Cabo, Puerto Vallarta and Mazatlan, you could add a couple more ports on the way down or back from Panama. That is not, if ever, done on most west coast cruises…usually a Canal cruise is a repositioning cruise…not round trip from Long Beach or San Diego.
I suggest that you might retain a significant number of those already booked on that January 9 cruise. Just a thought, Jack
