A traditional keel-laying ceremony was held at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, for Carnival Cruise Line’s third 133,500-ton Vista-class ship, Carnival Panorama, which is scheduled to enter service in November 2019.
The ceremony, which dates back hundreds of years, signifies the official start of construction of a seagoing vessel.
Carnival Panorama will offer many of the popular innovations and features introduced on Carnival Vista which debuted in May 2016. The second in the series, Carnival Horizon, is scheduled to enter service April 2, 2018.
Additional design details, as well as homeport and itinerary information for Carnival Panorama, will be announced at a later date.
