Vista Class

Carnival has an order for one additional Vista class ship that will be added to their fleet in 2019.  Carnival Panorama, currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, will be the third Vista class ship in service when she makes her debut in December 2019.

Carnival Panorama will be Carnival’s first new cruise ship to sail out of the West Coast in 20 years.  The ship will not sail a season in the Mediterranean before headed to America.  The vessel will go straight from the shipyard to Long Beach, California and sail seven night cruises to the Mexican Riviera.

The cruises ship will have all of the great features of Carnival Vista and Horizon including an IMAX Theater, the Skyride, Havana Cabins, Family Harbor staterooms, plenty of al fresco dining, good variety of specialty dining, and the LED centerpiece in the atrium that sets the festive mood with changing visuals.

LNG Powered Ships

Carnival Cruise Line has an order two, 180,000 gross ton ships that will be powered by LNG. These will be by far the largest cruise ships in Carnival’s fleet and are scheduled to be delivered in 2020 and 2022.  They will each carry 6,600 passengers and be built by Meyer Turku.

Based on Carnival Corporation’s next-generation “green cruising” ship design, these new vessels will be part of the first generation of cruise ships to be fully powered by LNG, which is an industry first and an environmental breakthrough that will produce the most efficient ships in the company’s history.

Pioneering a new era in the use of alternative fuels that reduce air emissions, these new ships will use LNG to generate 100 percent of the ship’s power both in port and on the open sea – an innovation that will significantly reduce exhaust emissions to help protect the environment and support the company’s aggressive sustainability goals.

  1. I have just completed my first cruise on the Carnival Pride and I could not be happier. My Steward Ferry and the people who worked alongside him and the other crew members were outstanding!! Worth every penny and would do it again!

  2. Perhaps Carnival should get their present 26 ships in top condition with all systems operational before spending billions of dollars on new ships. Just a thought.
