15 Things You Shouldn't Miss on the Carnival Vista (the Cruise Line's Biggest, Best Ship Yet)
Meet Carnival Vista: the largest ship of the cruise line's fleet, which features more unique features than any other in the industry. As the newest (the Vista first set sail in 2016) and therefore best Carnival vessel yet, the 15-deck ship blows the rest out of the water. In fact, 85 percent of the equipment installed is completely unique to the Vista. And true to its name, the ship offers views unlike ever before, while its abundant indoor/outdoor settings encourage passengers to enjoy the sea breeze to the fullest — a detail I most appreciated.
"We focused a lot more on outdoor areas on this ship and that's because we forget that the beauty of cruising is the ocean, the sounds, the stars," Carnival Vista's cruise director Matt Mitcham told POPSUGAR.
I was able to experience everything Carnival Vista has to offer firsthand, and I can honestly say that six days wasn't long enough to see and do it all. From the first-ever IMAX theater to the suspended bike course, the 3,954-passenger ship truly has something for everyone. Whether you're a family of 10 or a millennial couple, the Carnival Vista makes a fantastic first — or, in my case, sixth — cruise experience.
"It's new, it's clean, it's fresh," Matt said. "People come on here expecting to have a good time, which puts them in the mindset to have a good time."
