Just announced will be the return to Mediterranean cruising by Carnival in 2016.
This marks the first return to Europe for Carnival since 2013.
Currently under construction at Italy’s Fincantieri shipyard, the brand new Carnival Vista will offer a series of cruises next year to a host of European destinations in both the Western Mediterranean and the Aegean. Ports so far advertised as offered include Athens, Barcelona, Dubrovnik, Messina, Marseilles and Rome.
The 141,000 ton Carnival Vista is the largest ship ever built for the line, and the 25th ship to join the Carnival fleet. Early renderings reveal a ship that seems to be a slightly larger version of the previous, 135,000 ton Dream class vessels.
Full details of the new ship are currently being unveiled at simultaneous launch events in both New York and London right now to various assembled media.
A fuller blog will appear in due course.
As ever, stay tuned.
