Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Jubilee, has successfully completed her sea trials at the Meyer Werft shipyard and is now back at the dock in Eemshaven for finishing details before her upcoming delivery to the cruise line. The ship’s sea trials rigorously tested all her technical and operational systems, including navigation, propulsion, and emergency responses. The ship will be officially handed over to Carnival Cruise Line in a delivery ceremony and will become the 26th ship in the Carnival fleet.
Carnival Jubilee is now undergoing finishing work on interior details such as artwork, lighting, and flooring to be ready to welcome her first guests on December 23, 2023. The ship will need to move from Europe to Texas before she begins sailing, and her arrival in Galveston will be celebrated with fanfare, including the presence of cruise line executives. Carnival Jubilee matches her sister ships in size and capacity at 183,521 gross tons and room for 5,374 guests at double occupancy.
Carnival Jubilee will be the newest ship in the fleet until Carnival Firenze completes her conversion from Costa Cruises and joins Carnival Cruise Line in April 2024. The cruise line has no further ships on order, as they are focusing on ensuring the product they deliver to guests aboard their current vessels continues to be of the best quality and most amazing experiences. Carnival Jubilee will offer luxurious amenities such as the Cloud 9 Spa, Grand Central atrium space, Dr. Inks, PH.D with color-changing cocktails, and the onboard brewery at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse and Brewhouse.
