Carnival Vista Floated Out!

Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista, currently 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.

Carnival Vista will be Carnivals biggest cruise ship yet clocking in at 133,500 GT and 1,055 feet long. She will hold over 3000 passengers and have a host of new innovations for the line. A couple of the new features of Vista are the first IMAX theater at sea, a new cycle style ride called SkyRide and a onboard brewery.

Carnival Vista will make her debut in May of 2016 with her Maiden voyage from Trieste to Barcelona, Spain. Vista will then make a 13 Day Transatlantic trip from Barcelona to New York before moving to her homeport in Miami.
