Which Cruise System Is Best for Your Cruise Ship?
A new cruise system for the ocean’s largest cruise ship is under development.
The U.S. Coast Guard announced Tuesday that it has contracted a cruise systems engineer to build a new cruise ship for the U.K.’s Cruising Cruises that was built with the same components as one used by Carnival Corp., the world’s largest Carnival Cruise Line.
The Coast Guard plans to announce a final bid for the new cruise vessel in 2019, the Coast Guard said.
Carnival has said the Cruising Cessna has a wide range of functions, including the ability to navigate through rough seas.
The new ship will be a smaller model of Carnival’s Cruising Crystal, which is currently the world record holder for longest cruise around the world.
It is a six-masted, 150-passenger model.
The Crystal sailed into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2014, cruising for more than 2,500 nautical miles from Singapore to the Hawaiian Islands, where it was scheduled to depart.
