Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista is the largest ship Carnival Cruise Lines has built, and it’s a behemoth that features many wonderful places for gathering and having fun. It’s the first vessel in Carnival’s new Vista Class, and it’s packed with activities and loaded with great amenities. Carnival Vista has tons of outdoor spaces for taking in gorgeous views of the ocean and it offers plenty of areas inside for soaking up scenery. Carnival Vista’s experiences and attractions are well-suited for adults, but they’re meant to provide travelers of all ages an amazing time.

The Ship

While sailing Carnival Vista, you’ll be able to spend days lounging on stunning pool decks and evenings cozying up in charming bars. There are pool parties to enjoy, elegant and formal evening events to attend, and many other chances for a great time. Restaurants are varied, staterooms are state-of-the-art, and services is attentive and comprehensive.

The Itineraries

Carnival Vista is Carnival’s first ship to sail to Europe in more than three years. She gives passengers opportunities to voyage on eight to 13-day Mediterranean trips that include stops in France, Italy, Croatia, Spain, and Turkey. Carnival Vista presents several intriguing itineraries from New York City, such as a 13-night Transatlantic Cruise. Other journeys on Vista include two-night and 10-night adventures to locales in the Eastern Caribbean.


When it’s time to dine on Carnival Vista, there are dozens of eateries to sit down in, including a handful of dining rooms. The ship’s two main dining rooms, Horizons and Reflections, offer a variety of fare throughout the day, but Horizons is an especially interesting venue because it’s the first restaurant of its kind for Carnival. It also features a bar, which is ideal for those who like to relax with pre-dinner cocktails. Other eateries on Carnival Vista include the Lido Buffet, a Japanese-style Bonsai Sushi restaurant, and Cherry On Top – a sundae bar that offers made-to-order treats and 80 varieties of candies.

Bars and Clubs

Carnival Vista brews up its own beer, in two huge copper-topped glass kettles, inside of the RedFrog Pub – another first for Carnival Cruise Line. Other spaces for sitting down to drinks with family or friends include Havana Bar, the Library Room, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, and Alchemy Bar.


For fun in the sun, head to Carnivals decks and swim, play in the water park, go for a ride down the Kaleid-O-Slide, or soak in a hot tub. Kids have their own tot and family zone to hang out in outdoors, so head there with your little cruiser. Inside of Carnival Vista, you’ll find the Cloud 9 spa with mineral-infused seawater pool, a video gaming area, the Thrill Theater, and an IMAX Theater.

There’s even a mini bowling alley on Carnival Vista! To find out more about this Carnival Vista, and to book a cruise on the gigantic ship, visit Carnival Cruise Line’s website.
