Carnival Cruise Line reveals newest ship: Carnival Horizon
Announced on July 29, the 133,500-gross-ton vessel will be the line’s second Vista-class ship. The first is the class’ namesake, Carnival Vista, which conducted its maiden voyage on May 1, 2016. They are the largest vessels in the Carnival fleet.
“The name Carnival Horizon not only reflects the ship’s unique connection with the sea with so many spectacular indoor and outdoor spaces but also the boundless array of options that guests of all ages are sure to enjoy,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, in a written statement.
Carnival states Horizon will hold 3,394 passengers and feature many of the same amenities found on Carnival Vista, including SkyRide (a pedal-powered thrill ride along an 800-foot suspended track), an IMAX theater, Alchemy Bar and plenty of indoor and outdoor bar and dining venues.
Carnival also promises there will be unique features found on Carnival Horizon, but has yet to reveal any further details.
Carnival Horizon is under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy.
