05 April 2016
Trieste, 5 April 2016 – The keel laying ceremony of the new unit for Carnival Cruise Line, brand of Carnival Corporation, took place today at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard.
The new vessel 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”, due to delivery at the end of the month in Monfalcone.
These vessels are a new technological benchmark, in Europe and worldwide, in terms of cutting-edge layout, extremely high performance and high quality 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, theatres, 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.
