MEYER WERFT hands over cruise ship CARNIVAL JUBILEE

CruiseMEYER WERFT handed over the CARNIVAL JUBILEE to Carnival Cruise Line on the scheduled date. The newbuilding is the first ship for Carnival Cruise Line (Miami/USA) to be built in Papenburg.

In recent weeks, the CARNIVAL JUBILEE has proven its seaworthiness during extensive technical and nautical sea trials and successfully completed numerous tests. At the same time, work continued on board for completion. The ship is 345.4 metres long, 42 metres wide and can accommodate 5,374 passengers (double occupancy). The CARNIVAL JUBILEE has a wide range of entertainment options and numerous restaurants. The highlight on the upper deck is the "Ultimate Playground" with a waterpark including large slides and the "BOLT" roller coaster.

"With a strong team effort and a lot of commitment from everyone involved in the MEYER Group and our partner companies, we have once again managed to deliver a particularly innovative cruise ship to Carnival Cruise Line. I would like to thank everyone involved in its completion for their work", says Managing Director Jan Meyer.

"Our first ship built in Papenburg for Carnival Cruise Line is stunning, and being on board to take delivery, I'm proud of all the work our team and our partners at Meyer Werft have done in collaboration to bring CARNIVAL JUBILEE to life. Now, we start sailing her home so we can deliver her to our guests just in time for the Christmas holiday," said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. "CARNIVAL JUBILEE's Excel-class sisters, CARNIVAL CELEBRATION and MARDI GRAS, have been extremely well-received by guests sailing from Florida, and so we have high expectations for this ship as she begins to sail from Texas."

"The project teams at the shipyard and the shipping company, the many suppliers and the classification society have once again done an outstanding job on the CARNIVAL JUBILEE despite the many challenges," says Jürgen Storz, the ship's project manager. The ship will begin its maiden voyage from its home port of Galveston, Texas on 23 December.
