Carnival Jubilee Completes River Conveyance for Sea Trials

Carnival Jubilee, set to begin her maiden voyage from Texas in December, accomplished a remarkable milestone by becoming the first vessel from Carnival Cruise Line to undergo a passage through the river Ems in northwest Germany. Carnival Jubilee became the first ship built at Meyer Werft, and was successfully moved from the German port to Eemshaven, Netherlands. 

Carnival Jubilee sailed backward toward the North Sea from the River Ems and departed from Papenburg early Monday morning by two tugboats guiding the vessel. Officers, technicians, and engineers directed Carnival Jubilee to test its mechanical and navigational systems carefully. Pilots of the Pilot Brotherhood of Emded accommodated the ship with state-of-the-art technology, such as a hyper-realistic river simulation, to prepare for the crossing.

Prior to its arrival in Eemshaven early Tuesday morning, Carnival Jubilee began its escort around narrow channels and under many German bridges from the River Ems. Its further trials at sea are set to begin on November 5, 2023.
