All is on schedule as Carnival’s next cruise ship coming in 2018 is under construction at the Maghera shipyard in Italy. Work continues on Carnival Horizon and in the photos below workers can be seen on the open deck getting her ready for business by April 2018 which is when the ship will enter service.
As Carnival Horizon is now in the fitting out phase, thousands of workers are setting up the interior spaces. Technical aspects and systems are also still ongoing which is normal for under construction cruise ships. In Spring the crew members will begin to arrive and start setting up their departments for the first cruise passengers. The ship also needs to undergo intensive sea trials before being delivered from ship builder Fincantieri to Carnival Cruise Line.
