The construction of Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Horizon, is moving along as scheduled as work continues at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy.

Launched in March this year, the 133,500 gross ton newbuild is the company’s second Vista-class ship.

Once completed, the cruise vessel will measure 323 meters in length and 37 meters in width and will be able to accommodate more than 6,400 people on board.

Carnival Horizon is set to debut April 2, 2018, with a 13-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona – the first of four round-trip departures from this port.

Carnival will then reposition the vessel to the US with a 14-day trans-Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to New York May 9-23, 2018, placing Carnival Horizon for a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean departures from the Big Apple.

Carnival Horizon will shift to Miami to launch a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises beginning September 22, 2018. The newbuilding will also offer a special two-day cruise to Nassau from Miami.
