Carnival Begins Construction on New Ship

Carnival’s 26th Fun Ship completed a major milestone today at Fincantieri shipyard in Italy – the keel was laid, according to a Facebook post by John Heald.

The keel is the first building block of a new ship. The rest of the ship will be constructed around the keel.
