Carnival Orders Ships for New Chinese Brand

The Chinese cruise industry took a giant step forward today when Carnival Corp signed a memorandum of agreement to order two Vista-class ships for use by their new Chinese brand. The MOA for the two ships also includes an option for two additional ships.

The order is also another first because the ships are the first ordered from the joint venture Chinese yard that is a partnership between China's CSSC - China State Shipbuilding Corp - and Italy's Fincantieri - the world's largest cruise ship building company.

Details appeared in the September 24 edition of Cruise News Daily.
