Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world. It has 10 cruise line brands and almost 100 ships. Recently, Carnival announced they are adding cruise ships to their fleet. Here are the four that will be unveiled in 2016:
1. Holland America Line’s Koningsdam
The Koningsdam is a ship with the capacity to hold 2,650 passengers. The first cruise will take place in April of 2016 in the Mediterranean region. Passengers will find plenty to do on this cruise. The Koningsdam will feature a large stage with both sound and visual effects for shows. In addition, the cruise partnered with Food & Wine magazine to bring travelers farm-to-table cuisine options. Not only will you find beauty at the sea on this ship, but you’ll be able to enjoy fine-dining options.
2. Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Vista
This ship will launch in April as well, out of Europe, and will have accommodations for up to 3,954 guests. The ship will give passengers plenty of room with its family-sized staterooms. There’s even an onboard brewery, too. If you’re a movie buff, this might be the cruise for you. The ship will have an IMAX Theater onboard, so you can capture all of your favorite flicks on the giant screen while at sea. These attractions make the Carnival Vista is perfect for individuals of any age.
3. Aida Cruises’ Aidaprima
The Aidaprima will be based out of Hamburg, Germany. It’s the first cruise line to offer a ship setting sail from Germany year-round. But don’t worry – you’re going to have the chance to see more than just one country. The Aidaprima will have itineraries all around Europe, giving passengers an excellent opportunity to see plenty of the region. The activity deck has plenty to do, as well. Passengers can float down a lazy river, scale the climbing walls or watch their favorite sports events on a huge wall that doubles as an LED screen.
4. Seabourn’s Encore
Although it won’t launch until December of 2016, the Encore has plenty for potential passengers to start getting excited about. If you’re a picky eater, this is probably the cruise for you. Guests are permitted to go ashore alongside the ship’s chefs to the local markets. Not only can you help pick out fresh produce, you can also make recipe suggestions.
