Fincantieri Lays Keel for Carnival Panorama

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has held a keel-laying ceremony in Marghera, Italy, for Carnival Cruise Line’s third 133,500-ton Vista-class ship, Carnival Panorama.

The Miami-based cruise liner announced the name of the ship back in December.

The third Vista-class cruise ship is scheduled to enter service in November 2019, joining its sister ships Carnival Vista, which was handed over in April 2016, and Carnival Horizon, set to debut April 2, 2018.

The three Vista-class ships are the largest ever vessels constructed for Carnival Cruise Line.

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri held the steel cutting ceremony for the vessel in early July 2017 at its Marghera shipyard.

Further design details of the  323-meter-long vessels, as well as its the ship’s homeport and itinerary, are expected to be revealed at a later date.

Apart from the Vista-class ships, the cruise company has two more 180,000-ton vessels in its orderbook, scheduled to enter service in 2020 and 2022.
