Carnival Cruise Line Orders New Cruise Ship from Meyer Werft

Carnival Cruise Line announced today that the company has finalized an agreement with German shipbuilder Meyer Werft to build another giant cruise ship.

The new ship will be the sister ship to the Mardi Gras, which is currently the largest cruise ship in the Carnival fleet. It will be 1,130 feet long and 180 feet wide, with a capacity of 5,282 passengers and 1,700 crew members.

The ship is scheduled to be delivered in 2025 and will sail from Galveston, Texas. It will be the first Carnival ship to be based out of Galveston since 2000.

The new ship will be a “Project Panorama” class vessel, which is a new class of ship that Carnival Cruise Line is developing with Meyer Werft. The Project Panorama class ships are designed to be more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly than previous Carnival ships.

Carnival Cruise Line has been on a new ship building spree in recent years. The company has ordered nine new ships since 2018, including the Mardi Gras and the new ship that was announced today. Carnival Cruise Line is the largest cruise line in the world, and it is continuing to grow its fleet to meet the demand for cruises.


Carnival Cruise Line's order for a new cruise ship is a sign of the company's confidence in the future of the cruise industry. The new ship will be one of the largest and most advanced cruise ships in the world, and it will offer passengers a variety of new and exciting features. Carnival Cruise Line is committed to providing its passengers with a great vacation experience, and the new ship will help the company continue to do so.
