Carnival Takes Delivery of Carnival Conquest

Friday, October 25, 2002
Carnival Cruise Lines has taken delivery of the new 110,000-ton Carnival Conquest. Billed as the largest "Fun Ship" ever constructed, the Carnival Conquest’s official ceremonies were held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. Carnival Conquest is the first in a new series of ships for the line and becomes the 18th vessel in the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet. "Carnival Conquest is a stunning addition to the 'Fun Ship' fleet and offers an unprecedented array of amenities and facilities desired by today's discerning consumers," said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president. The 2,974-passenger SuperLiner will depart Italy on a 16-day transatlantic crossing in late October and is scheduled to arrive in its U.S. homeport of New Orleans the week of Nov. 11. Following an on-board black-tie charity fundraiser benefiting the United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area Nov. 14, Carnival Conquest will sail on its maiden voyage, a four-day cruise to Cozumel departing Nov. 15.
