Meyer Werft lays keel for Carnival Cruise Line’s LNG-powered vessel

Germany’s Meyer Werft continues to progress work on the LNG-powered vessel, Carnival Jubilee, for Miami-based Carnival Cruise Line, a unit of Carnival Corporation.

Meyer Werft held the ship’s keel-laying ceremony at its yard in Papenburg on Thursday.

This follows the official start of construction in March this year.

Meyer Werft said in a statement it expects to deliver the large LNG-powered vessel at the end of 2023.

Carnival Jubilee should arrive at its home base in Galveston, Texas, in November 2023 at 182,800 gross tons, with a capacity of more than 5,400 guests and 1,700 crew.

The 344.5 meters long newbuilding is the first ship Meyer Werft is building for Carnival Cruise Line.

To remind, the US cruise line said in June last year it took over the newbuilding slot originally reserved for its Germany-based sister firm AIDA Cruises, also a unit of Carnival, at the Meyer Werft yard.

The vessel is part of the 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 .
