Carnival Cruise Line has announced that the new Carnival Horizon will offer a series of four-day Bermuda cruises from New York in spring and summer 2018. The trips are part of the ship’s inaugural season that includes previously announced voyages to Europe from Barcelona and the Caribbean from New York and Miami.
A new 133,500-ton cruise ship, which will be the third vessel in the company’s Vista class series, will join the Carnival Cruise Line fleet in late 2019. The ship, under contract with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri, was originally designated for the P&O Cruises Australia brand.
For the first time, Carnival Cruise Line will offer a 14-day Alaskan adventure round-trip from Long Beach, California. Launching in September 2017, the trip will feature seven spectacular destinations, including Glacier Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the line’s first visit to Icy Strait Point, an unspoiled wilderness area offering some of the best whale and bear watching in the state and the world’s longest zip-line.
Carnival Cruise Line has confirmed that Carnival Horizon will be the name of its new 133,500-ton ship scheduled to be delivered in March 2018. urrently under construction at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera, Italy, Carnival Horizon will be the line’s second Vista-class ship, with the namesake vessel in the series, Carnival Vista, having entered service in May 2016.
A traditional maritime handover ceremony has been held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, as Carnival Cruise Line took delivery of its newest, largest and most innovative ship, the 133,500-ton Carnival Vista. The 3,954-passenger ship will reposition to Trieste, Italy, where it will depart on its maiden voyage, kicking off a summer schedule in Europe that runs through October 2016.
When guests on Carnival Cruise Line’s newest, largest and most innovative ship, Carnival Vista, raise a pint in the Red Frog Pub & Brewery, they will have a choice of three distinctly flavoured hand-crafted beers brewed right on board. Carnival Vista’s RedFrog Pub & Brewery is the result of a unique collaboration between Carnival and Miami-based Concrete Beach Brewery.
Carnival Cruise Line has made a number of enhancements to its trade sales organisation, shifting two of its most experienced sales professionals to new roles and appointing sales directors to oversee two newly created territories.

Carnival Cruise Line is launching a new air programme that is designed to provide guests with maximum value, choice and convenience when making their air arrangements in conjunction with their cruise. The new Fly2Fun programme is highly flexible as it allows guests to customise their air reservations with a wide array of options, including the ability to specify their preferred air carrier, departure point, specific flight schedule, and type of accommodation.
Carnival Cruise Line has announced deployment changes designed to enhance its leadership position in two key homeports – Galveston and Port Canaveral, Florida, – while providing exciting ‘Fun Ship’ itinerary choices in time for next summer’s cruise season.
