(1:30 p.m. EDT) -- Carnival Cruise Line will return to Europe in 2018 with its second Vista-class ship, currently being built in Italy, the line's president Christine Duffy revealed at a Q&A onboard Carnival Vista.
The ship, which has not yet been named, will feature many of the same attractions that are on Carnival Vista, including an IMAX theater and a RedFrog brewery. Richard Gelfon, CEO of the IMAX Corporation, also revealed the film company has an exclusive 10-year partnership with Carnival.
