4 new ships for Car­ni­val

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

CAR­NI­VAL Cor­po­ra­tion is set to launch four new ships this year across four of its cruise lines. CEO of Car­ni­val Cor­po­ra­tion Arnold Don­ald said the com­pany was “ex­cited” to wel­come the new­builds. The four ships sched­uled for de­liv­ery in­clude Hol­land Amer­ica Line’s i a with room for 2,650 pax Car­ni­val Cruise Line’s Car­ni­val Vista with a 3,954 guest ca­pac­ity and AIDA Cruises’ / AIDAprima with 1,643 cab­ins are all on track to be ready in Apr while Seabourn’s Encore with space for 600 guests should ar­rive in Dec. “With each ship we in­tro­duce, we gen­er­ate new lev­els of ex­cite­ment. It also sup­ports our goal to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble va­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence at a value that land-based va­ca­tions can­not match,” Don­ald said. Th­ese ad­di­tions are part of the 17 ves­sels that will join Car­ni­val Cor­po­ra­tion’s 10 brands through 2020.

This “mea­sured ca­pac­ity growth” to the com­pany’s fleet of 99 ships will al­low Car­ni­val’s global fleet to meet in­creased de­mand for cruise hol­i­days the line said.
