Carnival Cruise Line Adding Five San Francisco Sailings to 2020 Schedule

With its curved platform, vaulted tile ceilings, skylights, and chandeliers still largely intact, the station may have been abandoned, but it remains a vital piece of America's rail history. Its track is still used as a turnaround spot for the 6 line, but the station is closed off to the public. However, members of The New York City Transit Museum can book into the semi-regular guided tours it runs into the abandoned station.

Carnival Cruise Line recently revealed it is adding five voyages from San Francisco to the Carnival Miracle’s previously announced inaugural schedule in 2020.

With the added journeys, the Carnival Miracle will now offer a total of 27 voyages, including four-day sailings to Ensenada, Mexico; 10-day cruises to Alaska; and 15- and 16-day voyages to Hawaii.

The itineraries will sail between March and September 2020, and all voyages are now open for reservations.

“After seeing the incredible reaction to Carnival Miracle’s initial San Francisco sailings announcement last month, we knew we had to continue to Choose Fun and bring even more options to the West Coast,” Carnival president Christine Duffy said in a statement. “And what better time to announce this amazing news than while the Carnival AirShip is flying over the city?”

Carnival already carries more passengers from California than any other cruise operator and will expand operations with the debut of the Carnival Panorama from Long Beach in December 2019, new cruise programs from San Diego starting in December 2019 and San Francisco in 2020.

The cruise line made the announcement the same day the Carnival AirShip blimp debuted in San Francisco.
