While we have no news on the progress on the Carnival Vista ship, we can tell you that she will be an energy efficient cruise ship thanks to her Multi-Effect Plate (MEP) evaporators. This freshwater generating plant uses far less energy than other systems, which is so important not only for our seas, but also to help keep costs down for cruise ship companies.
Many of these companies have been involved with an internal race to outfit their vessels with these MEP high efficiency evaporators. It comes as no surprise to us that Carnival Cruises has ordered these for the Vista seeing as though Norwegian Cruise Line has ordered them for the duo of Breakaway Plus ships, as well as Royal Caribbean fitting them to the three Quantum class ships.
That is not all, there is a third Oasis class vessel coming, and that two will make use of MEP technology.
There is not much else we can tell you about this upcoming ship, and while we know many of you will wish to know the Carnival Vista deck plans, venues, home port and other such question, you will just have to sit tight. However, with a delivery date of winter 2016, we don’t expect to learn any new details on Carnival Vista until early next year.
