Carnival Vista Delivered

Written by:

Carnival’s Newest, Largest and Most Innovative Ship Set to Debut from Trieste, Italy, May 1


April 28, 2016 –
At a traditional maritime ceremony held earlier today at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, Carnival Cruise Line took delivery of the 133,500-ton Carnival Vista.

The 3,954-passenger ship will reposition to Trieste, Italy, where it will depart on its maiden voyage May 1, kicking off a summer schedule in Europe that runs through October 2016. Following a 13-day trans-Atlantic crossing, Carnival Vista will operate a pair of 11-day cruises from New York in November 2016 then launch year-round Caribbean service from Miami later that month.

Carnival Vista offers a number of unique features, including a groundbreaking suspended cycling experience called SkyRide (I can’t wait to try it!), the first IMAX Theatre at sea and the RedFrog Pub & Brewery offering three different kinds of beer brewed on board. While all Carnival ships with a RedFrog Pub are very popular, one with it’s own microbrewery is certain to be a huge hit.

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 455-foot-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 while offering our valued travel agent partners another exciting vacation option to market to their clients,” she added.

Reservations are currently being accepted for Carnival Vista.
