Carnival Corporation announced today that they’re placing an order for nine new ships, to be spread across multiple brands over a four-year period from 2019 – 2022.

The new ships are expected to serve established cruise markets in North America and Europe, as well as newer markets, including China.
Currently, Carnival Cruise Line is slated for the delivery of Carnival Vista in Spring 2016, while Holland America Line has the ms Koningsdam debuting around the same time.
