Carnival reveals look of massive ship coming to Port Canaveral as first steel is cut

Carnival Cruise Line is now in the building phase for the new class of ship coming to Port Canaveral, and a new rendering shows what the ship will look like when it arrives.

The first steel was cut at Meyer Turku shipyard in Turku, Finland for the unnamed ship that the cruise line is calling its XL class of ships. When complete, the 1,130-foot-long, 180,000-ton vessel will dwarf the lines’ current spate of largest ships, Carnival Vista and Horizon, which are 133,500 gross tons.

“This new ship promises to be truly special, from its groundbreaking technology and one-of-a-kind features to its distinctive livery and hull design that is both timeless and forward-thinking while paying tribute to our nearly 50-year history of making wonderful vacation memories for our guests,” said cruise line President Christine Duffy in a press release.
