Carnival Cruise Line names its new Vista-class ship Carnival Panorama

Carnival Panorama is the name of Carnival Cruise Line’s new 133,500-ton ship arriving in autumn 2019.

The ship, currently under construction at the Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy, is the third in the line’s successful Vista-class series - all named to reflect the connection between the vessels and the sea and highlighted by stunning indoor and outdoor spaces.

Carnival Panorama will join its sister ships Carnival Vista, which entered service in 2016, and Carnival Horizon, set to debut on 2 April 2018.  The three 3,954-passenger ships are the largest ever built for Carnival Cruise Line.

As its name implies, Carnival Panorama will offer venues with both indoor and al fresco experiences, including the Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, Library Bar and Bonsai Sushi, along with open-air attractions such as the ground-breaking bike-ride-in-the-sky attraction SkyRide, a massive WaterWorks aqua park and the SportSquare recreation area.

Also featured will be a vibrant Havana section with tropics-inspired staterooms and its own Cuban-themed bar and pool, Family Harbor, featuring extra-roomy accommodation, the Family Harbor Lounge, a luxurious Cloud 9 Spa and Ocean Plaza, a spacious dining and entertainment venue with indoor and outdoor seating. 

“Carnival Panorama is the perfect name to reflect the design inspiration of our Vista-class ships providing more venues and opportunities to connect with the sea,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.

“The shipwill offer a wide variety of fun indoor and outdoor experiences along with exciting one-of-a-kind features that will provide our guests with a lifetime of wonderful holiday memories,” she added.
