Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has held the steel cutting ceremony for Carnival Cruise Line’s third Vista-class ship at the shipyard in Marghera. 

The newbuilding is scheduled for delivery in autumn 2019.

At 133,500 gross tons, the new ship will feature a length of 323 meters and a width of 37 meters.

It will be able to accommodate more than 6,500 people onboard, including staff.

The new unit will be a sister ship of Carnival Vista, which was handed over to the company in Monfalcone in April 2016, as well as of Carnival Horizon. Launched in March this year, Carnival Horizon is currently under construction at the shipyard in Marghera, with the delivery expected in early 2018.

The latest Carnival’s ship brings Italian shipbuilder’s work scope to over 30 ships designed or being built at the group’s yards.

Carnival Corporation has 19 new ships scheduled to be delivered between 2017 and 2022.
