Carnival Vista Floated Out: One Step Closer to Completion

Carnival Cruise Lines’ next cruise ship, Carnival Vista, was “floated out” from the dry dock facility at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. The vessel will be the first cruise ship to debut for Carnival Cruise Lines in four years when she goes into service in May 2016.

Carnival Vista will be the largest cruise ship to sail under the Carnival Brand at 133,500 gross tons, 5,000 gross tons larger than the Dream class cruise ships.  The floatout marked a significant construction milestone in the ship’s construction.

Carnival Vista will bring many first to the cruise industry.  The ship will have first IMAX at sea and a suspended cycling experience called Skyride over the lido dek.  Families will love the Family Harbor accommodations and the Havana staterooms and suites are likely to be a hit.  There will be a wide variety of open air restaurants that will enhance the passenger’s voyage.

The ship will homeport in the Cruise Capital of the World, PortMiami, after a series of cruises in Europe spanning five months.  Carnival Vista will sail 6-8 night cruises to the Caribbean from Miami beginning in November 2016.  A 2nd Vista class ship is scheduled to be completed in 2018 and is rumored to be come in at just under 140,000 gross tons, eclipsing Carnival Vista as the largest Funship at sea.
