Meyer Werft delivers LNG-fueled Carnival Jubilee

Germany’s Meyer Werft has delivered the LNG-powered vessel, Carnival Jubilee, owned by Miami-based Carnival Cruise Line, a unit of Carnival.

Carnival Cruise Line on Monday welcomed Carnival Jubilee, the third ship in its Excel-class, during a delivery event with Meyer Werft in Bremerhaven, Germany.

“As the 26th Fun Ship in the Carnival fleet, Carnival Jubilee begins its journey to Galveston, Texas where it will bring added capacity and offer an exciting mix of new entertainment, dining, and fun to one of the cruise line’s most popular homeports,” Carnival Cruise Line said.

Once in Texas, Carnival Jubilee will welcome guests for the first time on December 23.

According to Carnival Cruise Line, the ship will sail from Galveston year-round on week-long Western Caribbean voyages.

The 183,000 gross-ton ship can accommodate about 6,400 guests at full capacity, plus 1,750 crew.

The Papenburg-based shipbuilder started building this 344.5 meters long LNG-powered ship in March last year and held a keel-laying ceremony in July.

In December last year, Meyer Werft delayed delivery of the LNG-powered vessel for about two months due to supply chain logistics and related matters.

The newbuilding floated of the covered building dock at Meyer Werft in Papenburg on July 22.

It is part of Carnival’s Excel-class design first delivered by the Meyer Turku shipyard in Finland.

Meyer Turku delivered Mardi Gras in 2020, followed by Carnival Celebration in 2022.
