Carnival Cruise Line’s next ship, Carnival Celebration, will feature The Gateway, an new area spanning two decks.
With design and décor inspired by grand terminals, transportation stations and departure points, the entertainment, dining and shopping zone will feature a promenade highlighted by 12 high-definition multimedia virtual windows displaying “unique scenes.” The 9.5 feet by 5 feet windows and the nearly 100 feet LED ceiling are intended to create an immersive experience throughout the zone.
By day, guests will be entertained with scenes like a sunny sky. By night, the zone will take varying nightly themes, transporting guests to different places throughout the world. Some of the theme nights will include Abroad in Europe, Far East Voyage and Mexico Lindo.
The Gateway’s main promenade will be home to a new travel-inspired bar concept, Latitudes. Inspired by a classic airport or train station with travel-themed chairs, menus and a mechanical split-flap “departures”, Latitudes is designed to come to life periodically with motion and sounds. The board will change to display the bar’s daily menu offerings and will include messages to support the imagery on the surrounding virtual windows. Offerings will include cocktails, spirits and wines from destinations around the world as well as special tastings and samplers.
Carnival Celebration’s inaugural sailing is from Miami on 21NOV.
