Carnival Cruise Line Releases Latest Construction Photos of Upcoming Ship

Carnival Cruise Line has released the very latest construction photos of the Carnival Horizon which is coming in Spring 2018.

The cruise line has posted some new photos of the Carnival Horizon while under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. It is nice to see how the ship is coming along and how it looks before going into service next year.

Even though the ship looks whole there are still many things which need to be done. Carnival Horizon is a long way off yet with all the interior spaces needing to be built. All kinds of local shipyard workers and contractors are working flat out to get the vessel ready.

Carnival Horizon will be the sister ship to Carnival Vista which is the largest ship ever built for the cruise line to date. The 26th ship in the fleet will sail her maiden voyage on April 2, 2018, from Barcelona, Spain. The maiden voyage will be the first of four as the new vessel spends a short inaugural season in the Meditteranean.

Cruisers in the United States don’t need to worry as Carnival Horizon will sail a 14- day transatlantic voyage where she will arrive in New York on May 23, 2018. The ship will then head towards its new home port in Miami, Florida after sailing a Summer season out the Big Apple on 4-day Bermuda itineraries and 8-day Caribbean itineraries.

Carnival Horizon will finally be based out of PortMiami year round from September 22, 2018. The new ship will sail 6-day and 8-day Caribbean cruises and guests will be able to enjoy features like the innovative SkyRide and the IMAX Theater which was first introduced on Carnival Vista. A new Dr. Seuss WaterWorks will also be introduced on the ship, the first at sea.

We also posted about the much anticipated ship in March when the shipyard and Carnival celebrated the traditional coin ceremony. It is a nice way to see how far the construction has come along since then. Carnival Horizon will be 133,500 gross tons and be able to carry 3,934 passengers.
