Carnival Panorama cruise ship is the third ship in the Vista-Class series, operated by Carnival Corporation’s Carnival Cruise Lines brand. The ship is being built by Fincantieri at its Marghera shipyard in Italy.
The ship was originally ordered by Carnival Corporation in December 2015 for the P&O Cruises Australia brand, but a year later the company announced that Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Splendor cruise ship would be transferred to the P&O Cruises Australia in place of Panorama.
The first steel for the Carnival Panorama vessel was cut in July 2017 and the keel-laying ceremony was held in January 2018. The ship is expected to join Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet in December 2019 with its home port being Long Beach, California.
Carnival Panorama incorporates most of the design and features introduced on her sister ships Carnival Vista and Carnival Horizon, which entered service in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

Powered by a five-engine propulsion system consisting of two 14V48/60CR and three 8L48/60CR medium-speed MAN engines, the ship will sail at a cruising speed of 18k.
