The steel cutting process for the construction of Carnival Cruise Line’s third Vista class ship began on Friday 7th July at Fincantieri’s yard in Maghera.
A sister ship for Carnival Vista and the currently under construction Carnival Horizon, she is due for delivery in Autumn 2019.
At 133,500grt, 323m long, the new Carnival ship will be able to accomodate more than 3900 guests in 1987 passenger cabins.
The new Carnival ship will incorporate the features of her older sisters with the inclusion of features such as the IMAX cinema, restaurants, shops and the Havana Area. Guests in the Havana grade of cabins (with their own personal patio/balcony) can enjoy exclusive use of the Havana Pool during the daytime.
Carnival Vista entered service in 2016 and has proved to very popular. Carnival Horizon will join her older sister in March 2018 and then 2019 they both will welcome the third in the class.
