Carnival Cruise Line, the world’s largest cruise operator, has reached an agreement in principle with the Canaveral Port Authority on a new state-of-the-art terminal able to accommodate its new 180,000-ton ship, the largest ever constructed for the line, set to debut in 2020.
The vessel will offer an array of groundbreaking, never-before-seen features and attractions while also being the first North American-based cruise ship to be powered by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), part of Carnival Corporation’s “green cruising” design platform.
Construction of the 180,000-ton cruise ship is scheduled to begin in November 2018 with the official steel-cutting ceremony at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Turku, Finland. Further ship details, along with itineraries from Port Canaveral, are expected to be announced in 2019.
These MEGA ships are well-received by many, but there are also others who don’t care for them. Let us know what your thoughts are… Do you prefer the big ships, or smaller ships?
With a 180,000 GT ship, engineers/designers can pack so many great fun things to do on-board. Some of the things that I expect to be included on this ship are below…
The above have proven to be extremely popular on Carnival ships, and I expect this trend to continue on Carnival’s MEGA ship in 2020. There are also my "wish-list things", things that I HOPE will be included on this new ship, but I’m not holding my breath…
Wouldn’t it be great if we could design our own ship, and cruise on it for a week? Sign me up!
Beginning in 2019, we will learn more about Carnival’s BIGGEST ship EVER. This includes itineraries, features, booking dates, room types, etc. Some things, however, may be known/leaked before then. Be sure to stay up-to-date on all things regarding this MEGA ship on our exclusive Carnival MEGA Ship 2020 Facebook Page.
So, how interested are you in cruising this new MEGA ship? Will you go out of your way to book this ship, or will you stick to the smaller ships? Let me know below…
Have a great weekend! And as always, thank YOU for your loyalty!
