Improvements to the Long Beach Cruise Terminal would accommodate a new and larger class of cruise ships capable of holding approximately 4,008 passengers, allow for the safe mooring of the larger cruise ships at the existing berth, and improve existing safety at the berth related to ocean swells. Maritime improvements would include dredging of approximately 33,250 cubic yards of sediments to deepen the existing berth; construction of two mooring dolphins and associated catwalks; construction of a new tower element on the existing wharf deck and a new tower on a new platform deck to connect the existing gangway; and replacement of existing worn fenders along the wharf deck with new oversized high-density foam-filled fenders and backing plates. Carnival, as a sub-lessor to Urban Commons uses approximately 7.8 acres of Port-owned submerged land and water surrounding the Carnival cruise ships' berth. Carnival would enter into a new water lease directly with the Port of Long Beach to expand its water lease area from approximately 7.8 acres to 11.8 acres. Onshore improvements would include expanding the existing parking garage from 1,430 parking spaces to 2,055 parking spaces; filling a dilapidated and abandoned 450-foot tunnel system adjacent the parking garage; and reconfiguring traffic lanes around the southern corner of the existing parking garage.
