The first of Carnival's incredible new Vista Class, the Carnival Vista cruise ship made her debut in May 2016.
- Ship in Detail
- Deck Plans
Carnival Cruises has upped its game in recent years as is amply demonstrated with the 3,956-passenger Carnival Vista that was launched in May 2016. As its name implies, the design is calibrated to connect passengers with the sea by offering great vistas of the ocean at almost every turn. This has been achieved with outdoor seating at the Lanai on Deck 5 where there’s the steakhouse Fahrenheit 555; Japanese-style Bonsai Sushi restaurant; and Cherry on Top ice cream parlour. This impressive ship is brim-full with innovations geared round family fun such as the first-ever IMAX Theatre on a ship; and Thrill Theatre with multi-dimensional special effects. There’s also SkyRide - an 800 ft recumbent bike ride suspended 150 ft above the sea; and Kaleid-O-Slide – a 455 ft inner-tube water slide.
Carnival Vista's cabins come in many configurations and range from Inside cabins to Suites. New are colonial-themed Havana cabins which give exclusive use of the Havana Pool; Family Harbour cabins which offer key-card access to a family-oriented area of Deck 2; and Cloud 9 Spa cabins with free access to the Thermal Suite in the two-deck high spa of the same name.
Horizons offering ‘Your Time Dining’ and Reflections for assigned seating are the two main dining rooms - both offer Carnival's American Table on most nights and American Feast on elegant nights. The ship’s buffet – Lido Marketplace - is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other eateries without supplement include: Pizzeria del Capitano; Guy's Burger Joint; BlueIguana Cantina; Mongolian Wok; the Pasta Bar; and Fresh Creations salad bar - available on sea days. The myriad supplementary dining options include: Chef's Table; Bonsai Sushi; JiJi Asian Kitchen; Cucina del Capitano; Fahrenheit 555; Seafood Shack; Havana Bar; Java Blue Cafe; and RedFrog Pub & Brewery.
The Liquid Lounge is a multi-purpose venue, designed specifically for the line's four signature special effects Playlist Productions song-and-dance shows. There also an array of bars where the action lasts late into the night, these include: Limelight Lounge; SkyBox Sports Bar; Alchemy Bar; Piano Bar 88; Library Bar; RedFrog Rum Bar; the Casino Bar; and the Vista Atrium Bar which is dominated by Dreamscape, a LCD screen with slowly changing digital images.
The non-stop fun continues at the Carnival Multiplex where your seat will rumble and you'll get sprayed with water in the multi-sensory Thrill Theatre. There are only three pools - the Beaches and Tides pools are very busy on sea days, so our suggestion if you’re a sun-worshipper or just want to escape the hullaballoo, is to opt for a Havana cabin which comes with access to the Havana pool reserved for your exclusive use during the day.
