Carnival Celebration Ship Marks Construction Milestone

Carnival’s newest ship, the Carnival Celebration, marked a major construction milestone today, February 11, as it rolled out of the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland and moved into a new dock, where the ship will continue the final stages of its completion.

The ship is the second of three Excel-class sister ships to Mardi Gras and Carnival Jubilee, which are scheduled to sail in 2023. The ship runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG), which reduces carbon emissions.

“That’s the exciting part, after the float, that’s when everything everyone will love about the ship goes from plan to reality,” said Ben Clement, senior vice president of news. construction, renovation and product innovation for Carnival Cruise Line, which was in Finland to oversee the milestone. “When a new ship arrives, it’s always hard to choose your favorite part, but Carnival Celebration is going to make that choice harder than ever when it comes to Miami.”

Carnival Celebration is set to embark this fall on a transatlantic voyage from Southampton to PortMiami in November, where it will begin its first Caribbean season on November 21.
