The bow of the second Carnival Vista class cruise ship hit water for the first time today. At a Fincantieri shipyard near Naples, Italy a very unique moment occurred, it reminded us of the when the grand old European ocean liners were launched in the past.
Not everyday we get to see a large part of a cruise ship sliding down and hitting water for the very first time. The dramatic moment was posted by Carnival Cruise Line and hosted by Peter Gonzales. The block which floated out is 1 third of the Carnival Vista 2.
Watch as workers prepare for the launch:
