Carnival Cruise Line is currently the world’s second largest cruise line with 24 cruise ships in service.
Over the next two years, Carnival Cruise Line will add three more ships to their fleet including one brand new vessel and two cruise ships that are moving over from a sister cruise line. Here’s a look at these three ships that are being added to Carnival’s fleet over the next few years.
Carnival Venezia will enter Carnival Cruise Line’s fleet at the end of May 2023. The cruise ship is coming over from sister cruise line Costa Cruises and will be the first of two ships sailing as Costa by Carnival. The cruise ship is a Vista class ship so frequent Carnival cruisers will already know the layout of the ship.
Carnival Venezia is one of the best themed cruise ships in the world. You can see photos of the ship here. The vessel is themed after Venice, Italy and will give Carnival cruisers an Italian experience as they cruise from New York City.
The ship will have unique dining experiences that can only be found on this Carnival ship. Passengers will be able to eat, drink, and enjoy the flavors of Italy.
Carnival Venezia will sail year-round from New York City and offer cruises to Bermuda, Canada, The Bahamas, and the Caribbean. View Prices on Cruises on Carnival Venezia
