Take a video tour of the Carnival Vista here!
The Carnival Vista is Carnival's biggest cruise ship! She has delivers a truly unique experience at sea. Let's start with outdoor fun. You can't help but have your eye caught by - wait, are those flying bicycles? Pretty much! SkyRide at SportSquare is a twin-track suspended bike course - strap in and race around for the win or just cruise for great views. At Havana Bar & Pool you'll find an island retreat that evokes classic Cuban-style lounging with an emphasis on style… and on views, and on traditional cocktails! Carnival WaterWorks is packed to the gills with wet ways to get-a-splashin', including Kaleid-O-Slide which adds funky light and color effects to the usual “speed-n-splash” story. If you can't get enough Guy Fieri, we invite you to try at Guy's Burger Joint and Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse. Rounding out this ship's sunlight highlights is Serenity Adult-Only Retreat, the low-key grown-up spot that's more lounging and hot tubs than action and adventure.
Indoors, things are every bit as cool. Take RedFrog Pub & Brewery for example - yes, you read right, the latest incarnation of our Caribbean-cool pub has a fully-functional onboard brewery that produces exclusive craft beers you can enjoy just feet from the brewing kettle. If you do seafood, you'll want to direct your appetite to Bonsai Sushi or the seaside Seafood Shack, while JiJi Asian kitchen and Cucina del Capitano are prepared to satisfy cuisine-specific cravings. On the stateroom side, Carnival Vista adds two new types of rooms to the mix: Family Harbor is a special area reserved for families and features a private 24-hour lounge and concierge service. All Havana staterooms and suites are located just off the Havana Bar & Pool and feature a unique tropical décor, while Havana Cabanas add a patio with hammock chair!
One last thing you should know: on Carnival Vista more onboard places than ever before span the indoors and outdoors - so whether you set the thermostat to "cool-and-crisp" or "sea-breezy perfection" you'll enjoy your kind of Caribbean comfort on Carnival Vista.
