Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri launched the cruise ship Carnival Horizon, Carnival Cruise Line’s new ship, at its Marghera shipyard on May 10.

The shipbuilder said that interior fittings will now begin, leading the ship to its delivery, scheduled for spring 2018.

Featuring  133,500 gross tons and a length of 323 meters, the new cruise ship will be able to accommodate more than 6,400 people onboard, including the staff.

Carnival Horizon is the sister ship of Carnival Vista, which Fincantieri delivered to its owner in Monfalcone in April 2016.

The shipbuilder said that Carnival Horizon will be built “according to the latest navigation regulations and equipped with the most modern safety systems, including the ‘Safe return to port’.”

Furthermore, it will feature advanced technologies for energy saving and for meeting environmental regulations with energy-efficient engines and an exhaust gas cleaning system.
