Design and construction
By gross tonnage, she will be the largest ship within Carnival Cruise Lines’s fleet. The ship is under construction in the Fincantieri shipyard of Monfalcone (Gorizia) and will be expected to be delivered by April 2016.
The first steel for the ship was cut in late February 2014, and the keel was laid in October 2014. The Carnival Vista Coin Ceremony/Float out was done in June 2015. 
Carnival Vista is the first Carnival cruise ship fitted with ABB Azipod propulsion units since the 2004-built Carnival Miracle.
