Carnival Celebration has been floated out at Meyer Turku shipyard


Representatives from Carnival Cruise Line and Meyer Turku came together to celebrate the flout out

Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Celebration was floated out at Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland on 11 February 2022.

The LNG-powered vessel is scheduled to arrive in Southampton, UK, for her naming ceremony and maiden voyage in November 2022, in time  for the cruise line’s 50th birthday celebrations. 

“The float out marks the beginning of a very intensive phase in the ships construction, as the inside features and venues will start taking form,” said Tim Meyer, CEO of Meyer Turku. “By the end of the summer Celebration will be ready for her sea trial and then for delivery later in the autumn.”

Carnival Celebration is the second Excel-class built at Meyer Turku for Carnival, and features a BOLT roller coaster.

“This is the exciting part, after the float out, that’s when everything that everyone will love about the ship goes from blueprint to reality,” said Ben Clement, senior vice president of newbuilds, refurbishments and product innovation at Carnival Cruise Line. “When there’s a new ship coming, it’s always tough to pick your favourite part, but Carnival Celebration is going to make that choice tougher than ever when she makes her way to Miami.”
