Don’t try to adjust your antenna if you see a massive cruise ship floating down the middle of the street on New Year’s Day.
That’s because Carnival has announced they will have their first-ever float in the 2019 Rose Parade, set to take place on January 1.
The cruise line float will be a replica of its latest cruise ship under construction — the Carnival Panorama. This model of the Panorama will only be 55-feet long (much smaller than the 1,055′ real ship), but will be covered in thousands of flowers. Among features showcased on the float, are the famous Carnival funnel, RedFrog and BlueIguana bars, a waterslide, and the new Sky Zone trampoline, which was just announced as a new attraction on the ship.
Here’s a rendering of what the float will look like from Carnival’s Twitter feed:
Hey West Coast, the fun has arrived & we’re starting things off at the @RoseParade. Our float will be covered in 12,000 flowers AND acrobats AND a @skyzone trampoline! #ChooseFun #RoseParade #SkyZone #CarnivalPanorama pic.twitter.com/8YxU4nUC4k

The Carnival Panorama is slated to be the latest addition to Carnival’s Vista class of ships, which includes the Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon. When it comes into service in December 2019, the ship will sail seven-day cruises from Long Beach to the Mexican Riviera.
You can see the float by tuning into the parade, set to start at 8:00 a.m. Pacific.
