Ahoy, cruise fanatics — Carnival Cruise Lines is expanding its dock in Long Beach.

Boasting record earnings in the second quarter of 2016, the cruising company announced plans to double the size of its operations to 142,000 square feet at the Long Beach Cruise Terminal. The expansion will reportedly include taking over the dome that used to house the famous Spruce Goose aircraft.

“We’ve been in Long Beach for 15 years, and we are interested in bringing more capacity to this market,” Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy told the L.A. Times.

New renovations will allow passengers to embark simultaneously as others are disembarking, and will dock ships big enough to hold 3,000 passengers — right now, Long Beach ships carry up to 2,500. Carnival curenty occupies 66,000 square feet. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
