Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Splendor is to transfer to the P&O Cruises Australia fleet in 2019, after the Australian cruise line decided to scrap plans to build a new ship.
Instead, Carnival Cruise Line will receive a third 133,500 GT Vista-class ship, set to debut in late 2019.
Carnival Splendor will transfer to the P&O Cruises Australia fleet in late 2019, when Carnival’s new ship launches.
Carnival Vista launched this year in Europe, with a second ship, Carnival Horizon, launching in March 2018. The new ship will be the third ship in the Vista-class.
The ship will offer many of Carnival’s most popular guest features, a wide range of accommodation types and a number of new innovations unique to the vessel.
The ship’s name, homeport and itinerary details will be announced at a later date.
