Very cool! We saw the Vista while in Costa Maya and Cozumel a couple of weeks ago - it’s a massive vessel, making that floating dry dock that much more impressive. 

One of Carnival's largest ships yet smaller than Voyager class :)

She is tied for number 40.  Voyager class ships are 30 through 38 with a few other ships in that mix.  

Carnival's Mega ship is the size of Royal's mid size ships.

Vista is roughy 58% the size of Oasis class.  Just over half.    

Wow! MSC is building a ton of new ships. Hong Kong based Dream Cruises has Breakaway class ships like NCL... very interesting.

With 2 more Oasis class ships coming in 2021 & 2023, looks like RC will have the 6 largest ships for a while. Looks like there are 6 200K+ ton ships on the horizon from MSC and Dream Cruises that will just beat out the upcoming Icon class ships.

The new MSC ships has beautiful gallerias/promenades on them. Look up the Bellissima when you get a chance.

MSC is poised to become a serious player in the cruise industry.  They have extensive knowledge with shipping.  Once they figure out how to adapt to North America it will be interesting.  

Some new ships are projected to carry more guests but in ships technically smaller than Oasis class.  No doubt they’ll claim to be largest based on passenger capacity.  

Interesting times.  Competition can be a good thing.
