Carnival Cruise Line has unveiled a new impressive and large fleet operations center in Miami which is where the cruise line is based. All 26 vessels can be tracked at the most advanced facility in the entire cruise industry.
Carnival’s New Fleet Operations Center
The new Carnival Cruise Line fleet operations center (FOC) is much needed with so many ships now in the fleet and more on the way. The facility is located in Miami, Florida and is 35,000 square feet which have been custom-designed for the cruise line.
The new high tech FOC which is the first of its kind in South Florida features 74-foot-long video wall composed of 57 LED screens which have real-time updates and information on all 26 Carnival cruise ships. An important aspect of the FOC is the collaboration between those onboard the ships and shoreside where many type operations are done covering environmental, technical services, and more key areas.
Carnival Cruise Line President, said:
“In designing the FOC, we combined best practices from the military, government and industry to achieve a generational leap in facility design, sophisticated technology and utilization, creating the largest and most advanced fleet operations center in the industry.”
“Nothing is more important than the safety of our guests and crew, and this new facility enhances our already comprehensive approach to safety and operational excellence.”
The South Florida-based facility is the third and largest in Carnival Corporation’s global FOC network, complementing those in Seattle, Washington, and Hamburg, Germany, where Neptune was first piloted. While the new location primarily is dedicated to Carnival Cruise Line, it includes the ability to monitor the entire 103-ship fleet among parent company Carnival Corporation’s nine operating lines and it can act as the FOC for any of them at a moment’s notice.
