Carnival Cruise Ship and Queen Mary
The Queen Mary has also benefited from Long Beach’s increasing reputation as a tourist destination. “We have experienced small incremental growth in visitors outside of the Southern California region over the last two years, and that trend is continuing,” Urban Commons Principal Taylor Woods said.

Carnival Cruise Line has canceled all cruises out of Long Beach until at least Feb. 28.

The cruise ship company recently announced that none of its ships would leave from the U.S. until Dec. 31 to comply with the Centers for Disease Control’s no-sail order. Now that date has been pushed back another month, with cruises out of Long Beach, Baltimore, Charleston, Jacksonville, Mobile, New Orleans and San Diego canceled until the end of February.

“We are committed to meeting the CDC requirements and keeping our guests and business partners informed of our progress,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.  “The entire Carnival team appreciates the great support of our guests, travel advisors and business partners, and local officials in our homeports and destinations.”
