Carnival Cruise Line has announced that the new Mega Ship it is building will be funneled. While Carnival Cruise Line’s spokesperson insists the vessel will not sink, more than one expert believes there will be a chance of this happening and causing significant damage to surrounding areas
The “carnival cruise line news” is about the Carnival Cruise Line’s Next New Mega Ship Receives Funnel During Construction. The ship will be known as the “Carnival Vista.”
Carnival Celebration has got her crowning splendour with the installation of the ship’s characteristic “whale tail” funnel. This significant construction milestone is another stage in the ship’s development as she prepares to make her debut in November 2022.
On the occasion of the Carnival, a Funnel was erected.
Carnival Cruise Line reported on January 25, 2022 that the Carnival Celebration, its second Excel-class LNG-powered vessel, has acquired her funnel. “On Tuesday, cranes dropped the funnel onto the ship where she’s being constructed at the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland,” according to the announcement.

The funnel of a cruise ship is both a functional feature that serves as a chimney to elevate gas emissions clear of the deck and away from passengers, crew, and equipment, and an instantly recognized element that aids in the identification of a vessel based on its form, colors, or adornments. Many cruise companies place their logos or ship names on the funnel so that they may be seen readily.
The split fan-shaped or whale-tail form of Carnival Cruise Line’s trademark funnel originally appeared in 1972 on the Tropicale, the first ship built solely for Carnival Cruise Line. Mardi Gras, Carnivale, and Festivale were repurposed ships acquired from other cruise lines and did not have the whale tail funnel.

Since its debut, the new funnel, designed by Joe Farcus, has adorned every Carnival cruise ship in the fleet. The Carnival Celebration will be the thirty-fourth ship to have the iconic red, white, and blue funnel.
Construction for the Carnival Celebration continues.
Carnival Celebration is one step closer to being equipped with some of the same exciting elements that are already wowing visitors on her sister ship and the fleet’s flagship Mardi Gras, thanks to the addition of the funnel.
The BOLT roller coaster, RedFrog Tiki Bar, the Big Chicken restaurant, the Cloud 9 Spa, and other fleet-wide favorites including the Punchliner Comedy Club, WaterWorks water park, Guy’s Burger Joint, and more will all be available on Carnival Celebration.

Carnival Celebration will be 182,800 gross tons and 1,130 feet long when completed, with a capacity of 5,282 people at double occupancy and up to 6,500 passengers when all berths are completely occupied. Carnival’s world-class service will be provided by a staff of 2,000 people on board the ship.
Carnival Celebration will debut in November as part of Carnival Cruise Line’s year-long 50th anniversary celebrations, sailing from PortMiami. Amber Cove, Costa Maya, Grand Turk, Nassau, San Juan, and other prominent ports of call will be visited on her inaugural itineraries, which will comprise 6-, 7-, and 8-night Caribbean cruises.
More Carnival Achievements
The Carnival Celebration isn’t the only ship that has achieved significant milestones. Bookings for Carnival Jubilee, the third of the Excel-class ships and sister to both Mardi Gras and Carnival Celebration, opened on the same day that the funnel was installed on Carnival Celebration.
Carnival Jubilee is slated to make her debut in October 2023, with her transatlantic journey departing on October 30 and arriving in Galveston, Texas, in mid-November for sailings. The ship will have many of the same characteristics as her sisters, but she will also have certain improvements and unique features that will set her apart.
The specifics of those changes and additional features have yet to be revealed, but one thing is certain: she, too, will soon have the famous funnel.
