Carnival Vista

New class of ship offers ground-breaking features and cruise experiences

Carnival Cruise Line took delivery of its newest, largest and most innovative ship, the 133,500-ton Carnival Vista, at a traditional maritime handover ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy in April 2016 ahead of her debut on 1 May.

Carnival Vista, with a maximum capacity of 3,954-passengers, offers a number of unique features, including a groundbreaking suspended cycling experience called SkyRide, the first IMAX Theatre at sea and the RedFrog Pub & Brewery offering three different kinds of beer brewed on board.

Also new is Family Harbor with special family accommodations and a family concierge, along with the tropics-inspired Havana staterooms and suites featuring a dedicated pool area. The ship’s outdoor spaces include a massive WaterWorks aqua park, highlighted by the 455ft-long Kaleid-o-slide, the longest slide in the fleet.

“Carnival Vista is a spectacular addition to our fleet and we can’t wait for our guests to experience all of the ship’s exciting new features,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Carnival Vista will provide our guests an opportunity to create a lifetime of wonderful vacation memories.”
