Carnival Cruise Line Will Focus on Domestic Sailings in Australia

Two Carnival cruise ships that are based down under will shift to more domestic cruise offerings rather than international cruises.

Construction has officially started on the third Vista-class ship for Carnival Cruise Line.

The yet to be named cruise ship has started to come together and construction has started at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy. The first piece of steel for the ship was cut at a traditional ceremony held at the shipyard. This marks the major milestone, the first of many during the ships build process.

The ship has not yet been named but will be identical to Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon. The vessel will be among the largest ever built for Carnival Cruise Line so far at 133,500 gross tons and 323 meters long. The ship will be able to carry more than 6,500 passengers and crew and there will be 1,987 guest cabins and 761 for the crew.

The third Vista-class ship is set to be completed in Autumn 2019 and until then the cruise line will be releasing further details including the name, features, and itineraries. We’re really looking forward to the Carnival cruise ship and will keep you all updated on the ship’s development.

Carnival Horizon is also currently under construction at the same shipyard and will enter service in 2018.
