Boskalis has successfully loaded a Carnival cruise ship aboard the world’s largest semi-submersible heavy lift vessels off the Bahamas.

The 12 hour operation involving the 134,000-gt Carnival Vista (built 2016) took place over the weekend a few miles off the coast of Freeport.

Starting at sunrise on Saturday the BOKA Vanguard (built 2013) loaded and then lifted the cruise ship before transporting it to Grand Bahama Shipyard.
