All new Carnival Vista arrives at PortMiami to start year round service

Published on : Thursday, December 1, 2016

carnival-cruiseCarnival Cruise Line’s newest and largest ship, Carnival Vista, arrived at PortMiami on Sunday, where it will begin a year round six and eight day cruises to the Caribbean.

 

Carnival Vista Captain Stefano Battinelli and PortMiami assistant director Fred Wong joined forces for a traditional maritime plaque exchange prior to officially welcome the ship to its Miami homeport.

 

As the line’s newest ship, Carnival Vista has introduced new amenities such as: SkyRide, a suspended open-air cycling experience; the world’s first IMAX Theatre aboard a ship; Kaleid-O-Slide, the line’s first water tube slide, part of the ship’s WaterWorks aqua park; and the RedFrog Pub & Brewery – the first brewery on a North American-based cruise ship.

 

Carnival president Christine Duffy said in a statement that, Miami has been Carnival Vista’s home since the company’s inception in 1972 and homeporting the new Carnival Vista not only provides consumers with renovated facilities and numerous operational enhancements but speak volumes about their confidence in growing this important market.

 

The Carnival Vista’s new schedule kicked off with a special six-day cruise to Grand Turk, Ocho Rios and Nassau. Once the ship returns to PortMiami, it will begin a year-round schedule of six- and eight-day cruises beginning with an eight-day voyage departing Dec. 3.

 

The six-day cruises feature stops in Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, while the eight-day itineraries visit different locations, including Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Kitts, St. Maarten and La Romana.

 

In addition to the traditional sailings, the Carnival Vista will offer special one-time voyages, including a five-day cruise departing Dec. 11 and seven-day voyages departing Dec. 17 and Dec. 24.
