Say Goodbye to Splendor (From Cruise Radio)

Carnival Cruise Line will get a third 133,500-ton Vista-class ship in late 2019. This comes after sister line, P&O Cruises Australia, scrapped plans for a new build because the Austrailian market hasn’t experienced enough growth. That new build has now been deferred to Carnival Cruise Line.

What We Know Under contract with Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri The new Vista-class ship will be 133,500-tons Carnival Splendor is leaving in 2019 Goodbye Carnival Splendor

Carnival Splendor will say goodbye to Carnival Cruise Line and transfer to sister cruise line P&O Cruises Australia at the end of 2019. That answers the question of why no Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades.

Looking Ahead

Current Vista class ships include Carnival Vista that debuted earlier this year, Carnival Horizon, which is scheduled to be delivered in March 2018, and now a third in 2019. The ship’s name, homeport and itinerary details will be announced at a later date.

Thanks for sharing!! I was wondering why all the shuffling with the Splendor.

A person I know who has sailed with CCL a lot was on the Vista last week. Said she would not do it again. It really is too large and the room inside was not adequate for the amount of passengers. She said she will sick with the Conquest and Dream class.

I just hope someone takes a duster to the decorations above the Thallossatherapy pool.

note to staff, dusticles are not decorations.

I have never been on the Splendor but I have been on 3 of her sister ships and I like the Fantasy Class ships. I think they are a great size ship for a short cruise.

I will be on the Vista the end of April and It'll be my first jumbo capacity ship I have been on. I have been on the large ships (Celebrity Equinox) abd loved it and and Adventure of the sea's but both of those have lots of space per person so you do not feel crammed in. I'll give a review of the Vista after my cruise.

I'm sad to see the old mid size ships going to the smaller markets. I enjoy that size ship. I don't need the water slides and all the attractions, I'm happy on a Cruise ship not a floating amusement part.
