American registered, multinational cruise company Carnival Corp. announced that four ships of its new fleet will break the current record for passenger capacity, according to the Miami Herald on June 15.
Carnival Corp. chairman Micky Arison noted that this announcement was unorthodox for the company, but they released the information since their boats would support the greatest number of passengers in the world. The boats would be able to carry 6,600 passengers.
Arison added that the new vessels’ design would make sure that each space would be fully utilized.
Two of the new megaships will be joining the AIDA fleet – which caters to the German market – by 2019 and 2020. As for the other two, they will either join the AIDA or the Italian cruises – the Costa Cruises.
