Carnival Horizon which is joining the fleet in 2018 will St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital artwork on its center Dreamscape atrium LED sculpture.
The next Carnival cruise ship to enter service will be Carnival Horizon in Spring 2018 and new details of the main LED atrium sculpture have been revealed. The feature will have artwork displayed by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patients. The new ship will feature 33 different artistic creatives by the patients and guests will be able to enjoy the visuals as they rotate.
Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, said:
“As the hospital’s Official Celebration Partner, we couldn’t be happier to showcase these amazing creations designed by the talented St. Jude patients on our newest ship.”
“We are always looking to bring to life our partnerships in a way that also gives back. We do that on each cruise with Groove for St. Jude and we did it on Carnival Vista with Brownie Buoy, a specially designed flavor with proceeds benefiting the hospital. This is just another way to recognize the work St. Jude’s does for the families and patients they serve.”
The LED display was first introduced on Carnival Vista in 2016 and has become a highlight in the ships main atrium. The sculpture is 3-decks high at 24 feet and rotates through different displays depending on the mood and atmosphere of the day or night.
The second Vista-class ship will depart on its maiden voyage on April 2 from Barcelona. The ship will spend a series of cruises sailing the Mediterranean before repositioning to New York in May for Bermuda and Caribbean cruises. Carnival Horizon will finally sail year-round from PortMiami, Florida starting from September 22, 2018.
Carnival Horizon recently departed for sea trials while under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The ship is in the final stages with the interior spaces starting to take shape. The vessel will be 133,500 gross tons.
