Carnival Vista, the newest upcoming ship from Carnival Cruise Lines, passed another construction milestone recently.
The ship, which is under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, has been “floated out” from its dry dock facility and towed to a new location at the yard, marking a significant construction milestone in the ship’s construction progress in anticipation of its May 1, 2016, debut.
The newest and largest ship in the fleet, the Carnival Vista will offer a variety of features, including a suspended cycling experience called SkyRide, the line’s first on-board brewery and the first IMAX Theatre on a cruise ship. Several unique stateroom options, including the new Family Harbor accommodations and the Havana staterooms and suites, will be included as well.
Carnival Vista will operate a schedule of European cruises from May to October 2016. Following a transatlantic crossing, Carnival Vista will operate a pair of voyages from New York in November 2016 and then launch year-round Caribbean departures from Miami later that month.
