First steel cut on new 135,000-ton Carnival Vista

Construction on the 135,000-ton, Carnival Vista is officially under way.

Earlier this week at the Finantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, the first steel was cut on Carnival Cruise Lines’ newest “fun ship”, which is slated to enter service in spring 2016.

Following the initial start-up of construction, workers will now begin building out the 4,000-passenger ship which will feature a variety of dining, bar and entertainment options that are part of the line’s Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative as well as several innovations unique to the vessel.

Carnival Vista will be the 25th vessel in the Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet.

Additional details on Carnival Vista’s homeport, itinerary and design innovations will be announced in the future.
