Carnival Jubilee, Carnival’s new cruise ship due to launch later this year, is heading into its final stages of construction this weekend.
Carnival Jubilee will be Carnival Cruise Line’s 3rd and last Excel class cruise ship. The ship will offer cruises to the Western Caribbean from Galveston, Texas beginning in late December, 2023.
The ship will be launched at Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany on Saturday. The mooring, as it is known in shipbuilding, will be the world’s first look at the ship ahead of her outfit and is the next important step in launching the ship into the Port of Galveston.
More than 500 spectators from around Papenburg will receive cowboy hats and Pepsi snacks during the approximately three hours to move the Carnival Jubilee from the covered harbor to the clothing store.
The ship will operate with a Liquefied Natural Gas propulsion system and as part of Carnival Cruise Line’s groundbreaking Excel class, it will have many new features – including the top of the ship, BOLT: The Ultimate Seacoaster.
