The Future of Fun Looks Spacious

When it comes to fun and comfort, Carnival Vista staterooms go the extra square foot.

Havana Staterooms & Suites

Consider your Carnival Vista Havana stateroom or suite your own island resort. Most important is the exclusive location: near the Havana Bar & Pool. The pool is your members-only spot by day, and a fun-for-all hotspot when the sun goes down. Indoors, all Havana staterooms feature a unique décor, but step up to a Havana Cabana for an extra-large outdoor chill space featuring a lounge-ready hammock chair. Step into a Havana Cabana suite for even more space, plus a luxurious rain shower.

(All Havana stateroom guests must be 12 or older.)

Family Harbor Staterooms & Suites

All-new Family Harbor staterooms, with a unique nautical décor, can be found near Carnival Vista’s Family Harbor Lounge, an exclusive 24-hour spot with breakfast, snacks during the day, concierge service… plus Hasbro board games, family movies, video games and more. The benefits don't end there — your kids eat free in most specialty onboard restaurants and get a free evening of Night Owls babysitting service, so you can enjoy a little alone time.

Cloud 9 Spa Staterooms & Suites

Cloud 9 Spa staterooms on Carnival Vista feature exclusive décor and amenities — Elemis toiletries, plus spa bathrobes and slippers — to help soothe you after a long day of fun. Get priority spa reservations, unlimited access to the thermal suites, free fitness classes, exclusive discounts and more! And you can have comfort and value — Carnival Vista’s got a full range of Cloud 9 staterooms, from cozy Interiors to stretch-out Suites.

Interior Staterooms

Here’s the most affordable way to experience Carnival Vista, without cutting even a single corner when it comes to comfort. With an Interior stateroom you’ll get a full private bathroom, complimentary 24-hour room service — plus linens you can feel at home in — all of which make this a great spot for curling up after a long day’s fun.

Ocean View Staterooms

These comfy rooms with a view let you sail along to beautiful destinations while taking in scenery of the sort you simply won't find anywhere on land. That view isn’t all that matters here — Ocean View staterooms on Carnival Vista are a little bit bigger than Interior rooms and feature a supremely loungeable couch for those times when neither lying nor standing will do.

Balcony Staterooms

Balcony staterooms believe it’s not always enough to be cruisey, but breezy. Any time you’re in your Carnival Vista Balcony stateroom, you’re steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, designed for maximum sea breeze and that ultimate view that’s so stunning, you have to feel it to believe it.

Suites

Get all the comforts of home and then some — think whirlpool tub — with absolutely none of the hassles. Since your huge Carnival Vista Suite gives you VIP status, you're our priority when it comes to getting on and off the ship. A Suite is the ultimate way to enjoy Carnival Vista, and the extra comfort definitely helps. So feel free to put your feet up, whether you’re passing the time with a soak in the tub or a stretch on the balcony.

The Future of Fun Tastes Incredible

Carnival Vista has new and popular dining options to satisfy your inner foodie’s palate.

carnival vista dining seafood shack restaurant

Seafood Shack

A good seafood dish is quite the catch. However you like yours served — whether on a roll, in a bowl or atop a platter — Seafood Shack’s the place to cast your net. Imagine a New-England-style seaside spot where you can take it all in, enjoying a great meal with a side of ocean view. (Although nowhere on land can you get your seafood with 360-degree ocean views.) Enjoy the view with favorites like Crab Cake Sliders, Lobster BLT, Fried Buffalo Shrimp, Snow Crab and more. Steer a course for Carnival Vista... that’s where you’ll find this shack by the sea, wherever in the world you happen to be!

Horizons Restaurant

Every night at dinner you'll find your menu featuring a selection of favorites... and perhaps future favorites, new and surprising dishes to try because your taste buds don't get a vacation. Bring all your buds and gather around a big table for a sit-down meal, complete with a fresh design twist you can't miss. Choose Your Time Dining and do dinner — plus a pre-dinner drink at Horizon's full bar — whenever the time is right.

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

High cuisine meets great atmosphere at Fahrenheit 555, a dining experience that stands toe-to-toe with some of the best steakhouses on land. This one features your choice of steak cuts, lobster, lamb and more… and inside, there’s even a full bar to pour great pairings. Outside, there’s seating for dining al fresco. They’re the building blocks of an amazing experience — delectable elements that combine with great service to offer an evening to remember.

Bonsai Sushi

So maybe you’ve had sushi before, but you’ve never had it like Bonsai Sushi, Carnival Vista’s onboard seafood-and-soy-sauce spot. Dine indoors or out, amidst expertly-pruned bonsai trees while enjoying sit-down service and a menu of delectable catches… plus soups, sides, sakes and desserts. So the next time you’re taking an onboard stroll, stop at Bonsai Sushi for a roll, a box or maybe a whole ship — it satisfies two.

The Chef's Table

When you cruise Carnival Vista, take a seat at The Chef's Table. At this gathering of fellow foodies you'll indulge in a cascading series of delectable plates as our chef shows off a little, all to the delight of the discerning palates seated around the table. Dinner is the main event, but prepare to have your eyes opened as you enjoy a galley tour, for a behind-the-scenes look at where the magic happens.

JiJi Asian Kitchen

JiJi Asian Kitchen

A modern dining spot inspired by a millennia-old society, JiJi Asian Kitchen on Carnival Vista serves up enticing dishes in an eclectic space that brings not just good food, but good fortune to the table. You’ll enjoy your meal among Asian prayer rolls and Mongolian-inspired fabrics in this unique culinary experience. JiJi offers a full-service menu featuring a mix of exotic and familiar dishes designed to challenge and delight your senses.

Cucina del Capitano

Cucina del Capitano

Who’s gathered around the table is as important as what’s being served at Cucina del Capitano on Carnival Vista. At our table you’ll enjoy Italian favorites, family-style, because we know that sharing tales of your day’s adventures goes better with large plates and good company. Speaking of which, the walls are adorned with old snapshots from the family albums of our officers, proving that the rustic Italian farmhouse atmosphere is more than skin-deep.

Guy's Burger Joint

Guy's Burger Joint

We’ve teamed up with Guy Fieri to design not only the burgers and fries you'll find at Carnival Vista’s onboard burger spot, Guy’s Burger Joint, but some of the rustic atmosphere you’d find at, say, a roadside burger shack just off a cool coastal highway. (Surprisingly, flavor and ambience this big will fit on the ship.) So try a signature burger dressed up Guy’s way, or take yours off-roading... to the nearby topping bar, where you can make it your own.

BlueIguana Cantina

BlueIguana Cantina

BlueIguana Cantina is Carnival Vista’s onboard taco and burrito place, featuring freshly made Mexican faves. Because BlueIguana is all about you, we'll throw in your choice of ingredients — meat, veggies and more — and hand it over for the finishing touches that make it your own. So head on over to the salsa bar and fire it up... or if you’re not feeling it, that’s cool too. Any way you dress it, expect a meal that’ll make you say "mmmm."

Hungry yet? Give your taste buds
even more to get excited about.

The Future of Fun takes the indoors out

Whether indoors or out, Carnival Vista has even more opportunities to play, relax, and have fun.

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 and FriskyFrog Java Stout. 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.

WaterWorks on Carnival Vista

Carnival WaterWorks

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, sea breezes and swaying hammocks. On Carnival Vista, we’re taking the chill to new highs with new ways to stretch out and get comfy. And 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 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’s why you’ll 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

Dr. Seuss Bookville

What would happen if we took a normal library and put it through one of Dr. Seuss’s 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.

Camp Ocean

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.
