About Carnival Cruise Lines
The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The “Carnival Cruise Lines” brand has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest’s experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations.
The Carnival Vista entered service in May 2016. It is not only the first “Vista Class” ship, but with a length of 322 m also the largest vessel ever built for Carnival Cruise Lines. It accommodates almost 4,000 passengers and features the first IMAX cinema at sea.
Atmosphere on board
Carnival Cruise Lines calls their vessels “fun ships” and yes: it is very difficult not to be entertained on board. But this does not mean that passengers will feel disturbed by wildly partying people all day. There is enough room to relax and enjoy some quietness. The dress-code reflects this concept: casual attire is perfect for almost any situation. Only for dinner in the main restaurants a more elegant style is recommended. There are even one or two festive evenings, where evening dress is required, but you may easily escape this when not dining in the à la carte restaurants. Though guests come from all over the world, usually most people on board are US citizens.
The design of all staterooms is modern and comfortable. You will find all amenities you would expect from a good hotel room. With at least 17 m² all staterooms are very spacious. Guests enjoy a wide selection of different cabin types. An interesting new stateroom category is the “Havana Cabana Staterooms” with a stylish 9 m² veranda. Also new for Carnival Cruise Lines: interior cabins for single passengers with almost 15 m².
Food and Beverages
Explore the world’s different cuisines in the numerous restaurants or enjoy the daily multi-course dinners in the main à la card restaurants. Here you may choose between early, late and open seating. If you prefer it more casually how about a pizza or a burger? Of course you might also try out the 24/7 room-service. Carnival Cruise Lines caters for every taste.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
As Carnival Cruise Lines calls them “fun ships” you will be entertained very well. Las Vegas style shows in the grand show lounge, thrilling games in the casino, freshly mixed cocktails in one of the lounges, your talent shown in the Karaoke bar or on the dancefloor to live music. A unique feature: the first IMAX cinema at sea! Expect it all and get it all.
Of course the Carnival Vista also offers many ways to relax, such as the spa area where a wide choice of treatments is offered. For those who feel the urge to move the fitness area and sporting facilities are great choices
