Large Carnival Cruise Ship Receives Artwork

The largest ever Carnival Corporation-owned cruise ship and the first in a new class of ships ordered has received her new artwork on the bow.


The ship will be operated by German-based Aida Cruises is being constructed at the Mayer Werft shipyard in Papenburg Germany.

Even though the mega-ship named Aidanova is for Aida Cruises it is the first of a new generation class which will also come to other cruise line fleets including Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises and P&O Cruises.

The Carnival-owned cruise ship will be completed in August 2018 so not long to go! ON August 31 a christening ceremony will be held at the German yard which will include a fireworks display and productions. The new flagship will actually begin inaugural cruises in December when the ship departs Hamberg Germany for a Canary islands voyage.
