Carnival Cruise Line has announced that its next ship will be called Carnival Horizon.
The vessel, which is being built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Marghera, Italy, will be the line’s second Vista-class ship after Carnival Vista. It will be launched in March 2018.
It will feature SkyRide, the iMax Theatre, WaterWorks aqua park, Seuss at Sea programme and Alchemy Bar. Carnival Horizon will also be fitted with features not on board Carnival Vista, although these, along with itinerary and homeport details, were not revealed.
“The name Carnival Horizon not only reflects the ship’s unique connection with the sea with so many spectacular indoor and outdoor spaces but also the boundless array of options that guests of all ages are sure to enjoy,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “And in keeping with our reputation for bringing fun and enjoyment to our guests and fans, we’ve come up with an engaging social media contest encouraging the sharing of your favorite Horizon photos,” she added.
Carnival is hosting a social media contest on Instagram that will award a stateroom for up to four people when the ship debuts in 2018. To enter, post your favorite photo of a horizon and tag @Carnival and use the hashtag #CarnivalHorizonSweepstakes to enter to win the cruise giveaway. The contest will run through to July 31, at 11:59 p.m.
