We've built a lot of ships over the years, but for a truly unique experience at sea, you’ve gotta see our latest, Carnival Vista. Carnival Vista has a whole new relationship to the sea, and you get to experience this as you explore the Caribbean with all-new views.
It's only natural that you'll want to start outdoors, so let's. 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. (But Serenity’s complimentary chopped salad station gets our inner grown-up excited!)
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. Of course Carnival Vista features a Dr. Seuss Bookville and youth activities for all kinds of kids (the smallers, the tallers and the in-betweens). 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 decor, 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.
Carnival Vista Facts
SportSquare featuring SkyRide
SportSquare on Carnival Vista makes not only winning but even simply playing fun. At the all-new SkyRide, strap in and zip around a bike course high above the deck. The Clubhouse features indoor activities like mini-bowling and arcade-style basketball... while soccer, volleyball and ping-pong are just steps away. Try for a hole-in-one at SkyGreens, sink "threes" on the basketball court, and push yourself to amazing new heights at SkyCourse, our ropes course.
Havana Bar & Pool
On Carnival Vista you'll find Havana Bar & Pool. The pool's a retreat that's an exclusive paradise by day... and the bar’s a music-and-dancing hotspot when the sun goes down. Grab a seat at the bar and order up handcrafted Cuban cocktails like the classic Mojito or traditional Daiquiri, fresh Cuban dishes like Ropa Vieja or Ceviche... plus classic sides like Yuca Frita or Tostones. This bar is just steps from the pool, whose ocean view and atmosphere mingles with the bar’s own, for a bit of that old-time Cuban resort flavor.
Carnival Multiplex featuring IMAX
Carnival Vista features two theaters, and we call the whole great big thing Carnival Multiplex. Behind door number one is an actual IMAX Theatre in all its big-screen, big-fun glory... the first of its kind you'll find anywhere at sea. And behind door number two? Surprise! It's Thrill Theater, the 3D experience where jump-off-the-screen visuals are only the beginning of a truly moving experience.
RedFrog Pub & Brewery
When you visit the next-generation RedFrog Pub aboard Carnival Vista, we'll introduce you to a few of our favorite local brews. And when we say local... well, these beers were not only born in our hometown of Miami, but they're freshly brewed just feet from your table. Designed in collaboration with our partner, Miami's own Concrete Beach Brewing, we're debuting ThirstyFrog Port Hoppin' IPA, ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat, FriskyFrog Java Stout and ThirtsyFrog American Pale Ale. Clearly we're all about the beer here, but everything else everybody loves about RedFrog Pub is back: the snacks, the games, the live music... plus atmosphere by the keg.
For those who flock to waterparks just ready to make a splash, we'd suggest sliding on over to Carnival Vista's WaterWorks. Classic spiraling waterslides, a giant bucket, an expanded SplashZone, water toys and more - you know, the works - are simply overflowing here for your hydro-delight. But make sure to see the all-new Kaleid-O-Slide... preferably from inside. This raft slide - for one or two - takes speedy-good times to the next level with lights, colors and all-around fun.
Serenity Adult-Only Retreat
The Serenity Adult Only Retreat is a world of complete peace, like sea breezes through swaying palm trees. And on Carnival Vista, we're taking the chill to new highs with new ways to stretch out and get comfy. With all this comfort, who'd want to leave to grab food? We've got you covered for a lite bite with Fresh Creations, a chopped salad station open on sea days, featuring selections that start with a variety of greens and finish with your choice of delicious ingredients. Serenity’s the place to do the stuff that's so hard to do in everyday life - reconnect with your partner, finish that book... or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.
Cherry on Top
Cherries make the already-sweet a little bit sweeter. That is why you will find Cherry on Top, our candy-and-more store, on Carnival Vista. This is the go-to spot for the sweet stuff but there are surprises in store, like a premium ice cream counter with goodies for mixing and topping. Cherry on Top also features accessories for celebrations, plus great gifts to take home for that special someone, even if admit it that someone happens to be you!
Dr. Seuss Bookville
What would happen if we took a normal library and put it through one of Dr. Seuss wacky contraptions? It would probably come out looking much like Dr. Seuss Bookville on Carnival Vista! The room is decked out in bright colors, fun furniture and even has some of your all-time favorite Dr. Seuss characters on the walls. But let's not forget that this space is all about the books the shelves are filled to the brim for hours of fun reading.
When families cruise Carnival Vista, even the smallest fish in the pond have a big, awesome time. Okay, so it's actually way more than just a pond it's Camp Ocean. At Camp Ocean, 2 - 11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities. We put campers into supervised, age-based groups and give each a cool marine-life identity that's sure to raise the sails on camaraderie at sea.
