Carnival have ordered four Excellence Class ships, two are on their way to P&O, one is off to Costa. The first will be named Iona. These will be 5200 guest capacity ships. However, we ask has one already arrived? The Helios Class at Aida has been floated out. The AidaNova. You might consider the Hyperion Class an equal class to the Royal Class, and if so, the Helios Class might give clues to the Excellence Class. The Helios offers up to 6,000 guests over 20 decks, 337 meters long, 42 meters wide which is daily standard for many ships, 184,000 GT. There are 23 bars and 17 restaurants, a casino, a water park, rock climbing walls, a gym and spa. The ship has a tropical theme. It will have the Pepper Robot to assist guests, that speak three languages. Go VIP in the two-storey penthouse suites with floor-to-ceiling windows.
