Carnival Vista Launched at Monfalcone

The Carnival Vista was launched today at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone.  

Interior fittings will now begin, leading the ship to its delivery, scheduled in spring 2016.

The launching was introduced by the traditional “coin ceremony”, consisting, according to an ancient shipbuilding custom, in welding a silver dollar on the last deck of the ship.

Godmothers of the ceremony were Heidi and Kye Heald, wife and daughter, respectively, of John Heald, Brand Ambassador of Carnival Corporation.

The ceremony was attended by Benoit Clement, Vice President New Builds and Refurbishment of Carnival Cruise Line, while Fincantieri was represented among others by Gabriele Cocco, Senior Executive Vice President Merchant Ships Business Unit, and Attilio Dapelo, Director of the Monfalcone shipyard.
