It’s been four years since San Francisco opened its splashy cruise terminal on Pier 27. Ever since, tourists have disembarked, ridden cable cars halfway to the stars and left their hearts right here. But boarding a Carnival Cruise Line ship here was another matter.
On Wednesday, Carnival announced that it will launch its first San Francisco departures in 2020, offering four to 15-day cruises from the Bay Area to Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico aboard the Carnival Miracle.Related Articles

First up, beginning March 19, 2020, will be four-day weekend cruises from San Francisco to Ensenada, followed by five and six-day trips to Ensenada, Catalina Island and San Diego this spring.
Fifteen-day Hawaiian cruises begin April 16, with stops in Maui, Oahu, Kauai and the Big Island, plus Ensenada. And summer will bring 10-day Alaska cruises — with stops in Juneau, Skagway and Icy Strait Point — that start from and return to San Francisco.
