Carnival Corporation is launching four new cruise ships across three global brands this year.
That includes new ships for Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises and Princess Cruises.
The new ships include Carnival Panorama, Sky Princess, the fourth in Princess; Royal-class of ships; Costa Smeralda and Costa Venezia.
Carnival Panorama will homeport in California’s Long Beach Cruise Terminal, part of the brand’s Mexico-focused expansion.
The new ships are part of Carnival’s ongoing fleet enhancement plan, which includes 20 new ships set for delivery through 2025.
Last year, Carnival launched four new ships as well: Carnival Horizon from Carnival Cruise Line, Seabourn Ovation from Seabourn, ms Nieuw Statendam from Holland America Line and AIDAnova from AIDA Cruises.
“Each launch of a new ship generates lots of interest and excitement among consumers, whether they are among our many loyal guests or they are new to cruising,” said Roger Frizzell, chief communications officer for Carnival Corporation. “Our four new ships in 2019 will be no exception as our brands will introduce spectacular new vessels that have been designed with one purpose in mind: to dazzle our guests as they enjoy an extraordinary vacation experience.”
