Carnival to take on four new ships in 2016

New ships for Carnival, AIDA, Holland America, Seabourn
Carnival Corporation will mark 2016 with the launch of four ships around the world, TTG Digital reports.
In April, Holland America Line will take delivery of MS Koningsdam, while Carnival Cruise Line and AIDA Cruises will take delivery of Carnival Vista and AIDAprima respectively in the same month. Then, in December, Seabourn is expected to take delivery of Seabourn Encore.
The four ships will be the first of 17 that Carnival is expecting to take delivery of by 2020.
“As we execute our fleet enhancement plan, which includes a long-term strategy for bringing highly efficient, state-of-the-art ships to market and elevating the overall cruise experience, we are excited about seeing these new ships come to life this year,” chief executive Arnold Donald said.
“With each new ship we introduce, we generate new levels of excitement it creates for our guests and the industry.
“We also remain focused on managing our fleet capacity in a responsible way by delivering and refurbishing ships that are innovative and efficient, while we phase out some of our existing ships – all designed to reinvigorate the options available to travellers looking to explore the more than 700 destinations we visit around the world.”
