Vista will feature many "fun" spaces including the industry's first IMAX theater, a 450-foot-plus-long water tube slide and a suspended open-air SkyRide. Other new spaces will include an onboard brewery, the New England-inspired Seafood Shack and a dedicated families-only zone with lounge and cabins. Also onboard will be the BlueIguana Cantina and RedFrog Rum Bar; Guy's Burger Joint; the Alchemy bar; Cherry on Top candy store; Hasbro, the Game Show; and the Punchliner Comedy Club, Presented by George Lopez.
The ship also will feature more outdoor spaces than any other Carnival ship. Designed to enhance the connection between cruisers and the ocean, Carnival Vista will provide outdoor seating for many of its restaurants and bars.
