First Steel Cut on New Carnival Vista

The image at left doesn't really do the occasion justice, but it illustrates that construction on the 135,000-ton Carnival Vista is officially underway.

Late last month at the Fincantieri 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 this 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.
