The German shipbuilder Meyer Werft is preparing to transfer the CCL-Carnival Cruise Line's ship Carnival Jubilee.

This vessel is slated to depart from Papenburg Germany on October 30, 2023, and make its way to Eemshaven Holland along the Ems River.

The arrival in Eemshaven is scheduled for the early morning of October 31, 2023.

Following technical and nautical trials, the Carnival Jubilee will return to Eemshaven for further preparations.

Carnival Jubilee is notable as she represents the first CCL cruise ship constructed in Germany. Within the MEYER Group, it belongs to the Excel class, with Meyer Turku Finland having already delivered CCL's ship Mardi Gras in 2020, followed by Carnival Celebration in 2022. All three sisterships are LNG-powered.

Carnival Jubilee will navigate backward along the Ems towards the North Sea, aided by the assistance of two tugboats. This method has proven to be effective due to the vessel's enhanced maneuverability.

The transfer of the ship will be conducted by the experienced team of Emden Germany-based pilots. They utilize state-of-the-art technology to prepare for a realistic simulation of the Ems River passage in Wageningen (Hollan)d

During the passage of the Carnival Jubilee down the Ems, the Ems barrage will be utilized to keep the duration of the passage as short as possible, minimizing disruption to navigation along the river.
