Carnival Cruises Unveil New Ship 'Vista'

Date Posted: 29 Jul 2013

Carnival Cruise Line will have a new ship debuting in 2016 and we can now reveal the name of the new 'Fun Ship'.

Carnival Cruise Lines President and Chief Executive Officer, Gerry Cahill made the bold announcement on Saturday that the line’s next new ship is to be named Carnival Vista.

Carnival Vista is set to launch in winter 2016, however no official date has been revealed yet. The ship will be built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy and is said to weigh 135,000 tons.

Carnival Vista will be part of a new class for Carnival and boast new Vista-only features. It will also include many of the ‘Fun Ship 2.0’ additions. These are part of a new innovation programme that Carnival announced in 2011, including new restaurants and venues. Within these enhancements is Guy’s Burger Joint and an interactive Hasbro game show.

The news of the new ship name was announced by Cahill onboard Carnival Sunshine last week, during the first cruise since her major overhaul.

Jim Berra, Marketing Vice President of Carnival Cruise Lines said "We're starting to use the ship names as a touchstone for how we think about design. With Vista, what we're going to try to do is design a ship that is extremely open to the ocean. We think at the end of the day that is really why people are cruising. They want the salt air, they want the ocean breeze, they want to look out to the horizon and see the ocean, so a lot of what we're thinking about in design and the inspiration for the design, is they want those views out to the ocean."

More news about Carnival Vista will be revealed during the time leading up to the launch.
