Carnival Cruise Lines said that construction is officially underway on the 135,000-ton Carnival Vista, which is slated to enter service in spring 2016.

The first steel was cut early last week at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, marking the first stage of construction for Carnival Cruise Lines’ newest “Fun Ship.”

Following the initial construction start-up, workers will begin building out the 4,000-passenger ship which will feature a variety of dining, bar and entertainment options that are part of the line’s Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative as well as several innovations unique to this vessel.  Carnival Vista will be the 25th vessel in the Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet.
