Construction for Carnival Cruise Line’s new cruise ship, Carnival Horizon, remains on schedule at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. Carnival Horizon will be the 26th cruise ship in Carnival’s fleet and will carry 3,934 passengers.
Carnival has released a few more photos from the shipyard giving us a look at the construction update on Carnival Horizon. (They can be found below) The last update from the cruise line was back in May and it’s interesting comparing the photos and seeing how much work has been done over the past few months.
The ship’s stunning spaces – from the Dr. Seuss-themed WaterWorks aqua park and the 270-square-foot Seaside Theatre poolside LED screen to a wide variety of indoor and outdoor dining, beverage and entertainment venues – are taking shape in anticipation for Carnival Horizon’s April 2018 maiden voyage.
Carnival Horizon is set to debut April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from this port. Carnival Horizon will then reposition to the U.S. with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018, positioning the vessel for a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple.
Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami to launch a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning Sept. 22, 2018. Carnival Horizon will also offer a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami Sept. 20-22, 2018.
