Carnival Cruise Line just celebrated a handover ceremony for its newest cruise ship, the Carnival Vista, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.

The 3,954-passenger ship will reposition to Trieste, Italy, where it will depart on its maiden voyage May 1, kicking off a summer schedule in Europe that runs through October 2016. Following a 13-day transatlantic crossing, Carnival Vista will operate a pair of 11-day cruises from New York in November 2016, and then launch year-round Caribbean service from Miami later that month.
