Carnival Vista will be the next largest ship by a cruise line that continues to rebuild its reputation among guests for winter 2016. The news was announced by President and CEO Gerry Cahill on Saturday.
Vista will be a 4,000-passenger cruise ship weighing 135,000 tons, and will be built in the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. It will feature Carnival’s latest upgrades as well as a number of state-of-the-art innovations. The vessel will be the cruise line’s 25th “Fun Ship.”
“Carnival Vista will offer a wide variety of dining, bar and entertainment options that are part of the line’s groundbreaking Fun Ship 2.0 product enhancement initiative, along with a number of innovations unique to this vessel,” Cahill said.
The home port for the Carnival Vista and its itinerary has not been announced yet.
Carnival is trying to reinvent itself after spending $300 million to upgrade its ships, including a second generator to be served in case of a power outage.
The public perception of Carnival turned worse last February when the Triumph was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for eight days.
Since then, the company has made a lot of changes and upgrades to its fleet.
