Carnival Vista Below the Water Line

What lies beneath the water line of a cruise ship? Host Peter Gonzalez dives in to learn more. The team is going under the hull of the Carnival Vista to see something that viewers may never get to see until now.

The new “Behind the Scenes: Carnival Vista” video series continues with the second episode venturing below deck to showcase the line’s largest and most innovative ship, which is set to debut from Europe May 1, 2016.

In the video that follows, entitled “Below the Waterline,” host Peter Gonzalez heads to the Fincantieri shipyard to interview Carnival Vista’s Chief Engineer Cesare Boldrini who talks about the groundbreaking technology incorporated into the 133,500-ton vessel—85 percent of which has never been employed before on a Carnival ship. Gonzalez also explores the ship’s Azipod propulsion system that includes twin 170-ton propellers that can rotate a full 360 degrees. He also examines the hundreds of massive 2,000-pound support blocks that must be expertly positioned to ensure maximum stability during the construction process.
