Carnival Cruise Line has announced that its newest ship, and sister-ship to its largest ship Carnival Vista, will be named Carnival Panorama.

The vessel, which will have a capacity of carrying almost 4,000 passengers, is the third in size of Carnival’s Vista-class ships, behind Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon. It is currently being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, and is set to debut on April 2, 2018.

“Carnival Panorama is the perfect name to reflect the design inspiration of our Vista-class ships, providing more venues and opportunities to connect with the sea,” Carnival President Christine Duffy said in a statement.

When it debuts, Panorama will sport many of the features of its sister ships, including the Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse, Library Bar, Bonsai Sushi, SkyRide, Waterworks aqua park, and the SportSquare recreation area.

Panorama will also have its own Cuba-themed area with tropics-inspired staterooms, as well as a themed bar and pool. Carnival’s Family Harbor area, which features accommodations with extra space and its own lounge, will also be installed.

More details on Panorama, including homeport and itinerary, will be announced closer to its debut.
