Book your cruise on Carnival Vista and let Carnival Vista take care of the rest. There are an abundance of fun facilities onboard and ample opportunities for things to do at sea. Families and social cruisers will enjoy the Carnival community and those looking for an active cruise will like the high energy pace onboard.

For sunny sea days top deck is the place to be. Carnival WaterWorks on deck 12 has an expanded SplashZone, giant bucket and classic spiralled waterslides, including the new high tech Kaleid-O-Slide with lights and colours. SportSquare is a large indoor and outdoor fun area with mini golf, mini-bowling, volleyball, ping-pong, basketball and more. Those wanting to admire stunning sea views can do so from the SkyCourse ropes course or suspended cycle SkyRide.

For indoor fun, the Carnival Multiplex presents the first ever IMAX Theatre at sea showing a selection of Hollywood blockbusters and film fan favourites. Next door the 3D Thrill Theatre brings screenings to life for a real animated atmosphere.

Dr.Seuss Bookville and Camp Ocean keep kids happy and entertained with plentiful books and age appropriate activities, whilst parents can chill out in the adult-only Serenity Retreat on deck 15.

Infectious LOL’s can be heard when Carnival Live is onboard. Vista guests can enjoy top of the range live performances from featured musicians or comedians. Other after dark entertainment can be experienced in the Liquid Lounge, RedFrog Pub or Havana Club.

Dining Onboard is Amazing

From green eggs and ham ala Dr, Seuss to beer that has been brewed in the ship’s very own onboard brewery, Carnival Vista offers a fantastic range of food and drink options for all to enjoy.  Top food recommendations from the Iglu Cruise team include:

  • Get a breakfast burrito from BlueIguana Cantina, you won’t regret it!
  • You have to try the Carnival Chocolate Melting Cake, nothing else even compares.
  • Grab a burger from Guy’s Burger Joint for a real American style snack.
  • Choose your own Asian stir fry melody with customisable options from Mongolian Wok.

  • Other great dining options include Horizons Restaurant for a sit down meal with new surprising dishes to try each night or seafood with 360 degree ocean views in Seafood Shack. Succulent steak and lobster in the Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse and Italian inspired family favourites at Cucina del Capitano. For an extra special dining occasion, The Chef’s Table, with delicious dishes and even a behind the scenes galley tour is a great option.

    The Carnival Crew go above and beyond

    During our time onboard Carnival Vista the crew were extremely welcoming and friendly, eager to make sure that we had a fun and memorable cruise. Our Cruise Director – Matt Mitcham was fantastic and made an extra special effort to speak to everyone onboard. Matt was at times a comedian and an entertainer creating a fun environment for all to enjoy. Dancing and games at the pool area are a much loved Carnival custom.
