A ceremony was held at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy when the first piece of steel was cut for the new cruise ship.  This yet to be named 133,500 gross ton cruise ship is currently scheduled to debut in 2019 and will hold nearly 4,000 passengers.  Itineraries and the ship’s home port will be announced at a later date.

The ship will have all of the great features that Carnival Vista brought to cruising last year including the Sky Ride, IMAX at sea, LED centerpiece in the atrium, and the Havana cabins and relaxation area among other features.

The first Vista class ship, Carnival Vista, debuted in May 2016. The second Vista class ship, Carnival Horizon, is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2018.  Once completed, Carnival Horizon will sail a season in the Mediterranean and then home port in Miami, Florida and sail to the Caribbean.
