Keel Laid for Carnival’s New Cruise Ship
A keel laying ceremony for Carnival Cruise Line’s new vessel took place today at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard.
The new cruise ship will go to sea in 2018. She will be about 133,500 gross tons, carry almost 6,500 people (guests and crew), and will be realized on the basis of the project of the twin vessel Vista, the largest ship which Fincantieri has ever built, due to delivery at the end of the month in Monfalcone.
According to the builder, these vessels are a new technological benchmark, in Europe and worldwide, in terms of layout, performance and technical solutions. The interior fittings will be of an extremely high level quality comfort, offering a wide range of onboard entertainments, such as an IMAX 3D cinema, a brewery (with onboard beer production), restaurants, theaters, shops and wellness centers. One of Vista-class’ innovation will be the Havana Area, a themed private and exclusive area, with cabins, open bars and a swimming pool. The access to this area is limited only to those passengers whose cabins are in the Havana Area.
