Construction begins on largest Carnival cruise ship ever
A shipyard in Italy today officially began construction on what will be the largest Carnival cruise vessel ever. Carnival says the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone near Trieste, Italy held an official keel-laying ceremony for the 3,954-passenger Carnival Vista, which is scheduled to debut in the spring of 2016. The 133,500-ton ship will be the 25th in the Carnival fleet. The ceremony – a shipbuilding traditional that dates back hundreds of years – signifies the official start of construction of a seagoing vessel. The Carnival Vista will be the first in a new class of ship at Carnival and the line's first new vessel since the debut of the 3,690-passenger Carnival Breeze in 2012. At 130,000 tons, the Carnival Breeze and sister Carnival Magic are the line's largest vessels now at sea.

Heavy winds blow VT Halter Marine ship from its moorings into Bayou Casotte
Heavy wind gusts during last night's storm blew a VT Halter Marine vessel under construction at the Pascagoula shipyard from its moorings, the company said today. At about 9:15 p.m., the ship broke loose and drifted into the Bayou Casotte channel. Port of Pascagoula director Mark McAndrews said it was the company's largest ship ever built, the Marjorie C, that broke loose. The 692-foot-long roll-on/roll-off car truck carrier, being built for Honolulu-based Pasha Hawaii, was launched in August. Tugboats were immediately activated, company leaders said in today's news release, and the ship was captured and moored alongside the pier adjacent to Mississippi Phosphates Corp. There were no workers aboard the vessel at the time, and there were no injuries. More at blog.gulflive.com...
