Carnival Jubilee will be the third Excel-class ship to join the fleet
Carnival Jubilee will have a guest capacity of 5,282 (double occupancy)
When it debuts in October 2023, the 5,400-passenger Carnival Jubilee will become Carnival Cruise Line's third Excel-class vessel and sister to ship to Mardi Gras and Carnival Celebration. It will homeport in Galveston, becoming the largest Carnival ship based at the Texas port.
Carnival Jubilee Deck Plans Will Include Bolt Roller Coaster and Some Surprises
Carnival Jubilee is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Turku, Finland. The ship will share features from its two siblings which include six themed indoor areas, BOLT, the first roller coaster at sea, 20 different cabin categories and a three-deck atrium overlooking the ocean that converts to an entertainment venue at night. The ship will also be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) as part of Carnival's commitment to sustainability and emissions reduction. Carnival has said the ship will also feature some "surprises" that will be revealed at a later date.
