Carnival Cruise Line this week announced that the Carnival Miracle will homeport in San Diego in late 2019, marking the cruise line’s return to San Diego for the first time in seven years.

When it arrives, Miracle, which was most recently sailing seven-day cruises out of Tampa, will sail a schedule of three- to 15-day cruises through February 2020, starting with a seven-day Mexican Riviera itinerary that sets sail on Dec. 1, 2019.

Miracle will sail two, five-day itineraries that include two days at Cab San Lucas on Dec. 22, 2019 and Jan. 12, 2020; two, three-day sailings that stop in Ensenada on Dec. 27, 2019 and Jan. 3, 2020; a four-day New Year’s Baja Mexico sailing on Dec. 20, 2019; and a six-day sailing that features two days in Cabo San Lucas and a day at Ensenada on Jan. 6, 2020.

It will wrap up its San Diego season with a 13-day repositioning cruise through the Panama Canal that leaves San Diego on Feb. 1, 2020 and arrives in Miami on Feb 13.
