American television host Vanna White will be the godmother for Carnival Panorama when the ship is officially named in a ceremony at Long Beach, California on 10 December.

“Carnival Cruise Line has been delivering fun and memorable holidays while taking great care of their guests for almost 50 years, and it is such an honour to be asked to be a part of the celebration of their newest ship coming to California,” said White. “There is always so much excitement whenever we give away a Carnival cruise on the show. I can’t wait to see the ship and to meet the crew in December.”

Carnival Panorama left Fincantieri’s shipyard in Italy on 1 November and is currently sailing to Long Beach.

“Vanna has been that welcoming face, cheering on and watching over ‘Wheel of Fortune’ contestants for decades, and we love the fact that Vanna will be doing the same for Carnival Panorama, her guests and crew, as the ship’s godmother,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. 

Following the ceremony, Carnival Panorama will start sailing year-round, seven-day cruises to Mexico from Long Beach on 14 December, calling at Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas.
