News From Carnival Cruise Lines – Carnival Horizon Nearing Completion!

Carnival Horizon has just reached another construction milestone and is just months away from joining our ever-growing fleet! Read below for the details. Also, I’m proud to share the news that Carnival was the recipient of six Porthole Cruise Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards!

Carnival Horizon Successfully Completes Sea Trials

Carnival Horizon is one step closer to its debut! We finished the final sea trials earlier this week which involved several of our officers, technicians and engineers onboard to thoroughly test Carnival Horizon’s sophisticated technical, mechanical and navigation systems. The ship then returned to Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy where it is now getting its finishing touches before it debuts on April 2, 2018. We can’t wait for you and your clients to check out the many firsts it will have for our fleet such as the Dr. Seuss WaterWorks aqua park, Bonsai Teppanyaki, and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse|Brewhouse. It will also have popular Vista-class features including an IMAX Theatre, SkyRide, and the Havana and Family Harbor staterooms.
