Just thinking about what it takes to build a cruise ship is mind boggling to me. These ships are massive in size, not to mention the details that go into specifics once the outer shell is built too.
The folks at Carnival Cruise Lines have decided to show us the construction process with their new behind-the-scenes videos series of the Carnival Vista being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.
Host Peter Gonzalez takes viewers along to Italy for the first of many updates featuring Carnival Vista’s 26-months of construction.
In this first video, you’ll go high above the ship and get a true bird’s eye view – it’s an incredible sight. It is also pretty amazing to see the process for cutting and assembling the 150,000 tons of steel needed to build the Carnival’s newest and largest ship in the fleet – it is 1,055-foot-long.
Here’s a look behind-the-scenes —

Carnival’s newest, largest and most innovative ship, Carnival Vista is set to debut in Europe May 1, 2016, operating a series of Mediterranean voyages before repositioning to New York for a series of departures in November 2016.
