Construction on the 135,000-ton Carnival Vista is officially underway!
Earlier this week at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, the first steel was cut on Carnival Cruise Linesâ€™ newest â€œFun Ship,â€ which is slated to enter service in spring 2016.
Following the initial start-up of construction, workers will now begin building out the 4,000-passenger ship which will feature a variety of dining, bar and entertainment options that are part of the lineâ€™s Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative as well as several innovations unique to this vessel. Carnival Vista will be the 25[SUP]th[/SUP] vessel in the Carnival Cruise Linesâ€™ fleet.
Additional details on Carnival Vistaâ€™s homeport, itinerary and design innovations will be announced in the future.
