Cruise News Shorts: Carnival Cruise Lines Cuts Steel and Norwegian Goes Bananas
Carnival Vista Steel Cutting (1:30 p.m. EST) -- Every week we catch wind of so much cruise news, we don't always know what to do with it all, but a few standout bits sometimes catch our attention. Here are two interesting cruise tidbits we think you might like to know about.

Hola la Vista
Construction on Carnival Cruise Lines next ship is officially underway after the first steel was cut earlier this week in Italy. The 135,000-ton Carnival Vista, which will be the 25th ship in the lines' fleet, is scheduled to launch spring 2016.

Bananarama
Norwegian Cruise Line is going bananas. Seriously. The line has scheduled 16 calls at the Honduran port known as Banana Coast beginning this October and lasting through April 2015. Calling on the relatively new port will be the 2,376-passenger Norwegian Jewel. To date, five cruise lines have scheduled 34 calls on eight ships at Honduras' first mainland cruise port including Holland America Line, Silversea Cruises, P&O Cruises and Oceania Cruises. Banana Coast has a tender dock, reception center, shopping, transportation hub and 10 acres of beachfront.
