Carnival Cruise Line will get a third 133,500-ton Vista-class ship in late 2019. This comes after sister line, P&O Cruises Australia, scrapped plans for a new build because the Austrailian market hasn’t experienced enough growth. That new build has now been deferred to Carnival Cruise Line.
What We Know
- Under contract with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri
- The new Vista-class ship will be 133,500-tons
- Carnival Splendor is leaving in 2019
Goodbye Carnival Splendor
Carnival Splendor will say goodbye to Carnival Cruise Line and transfer to sister cruise line P&O Cruises Australia at the end of 2019. That answers the question of why no Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades.
