High-Powered Outdoor Fun

With SkyRide™, the cruise industry's first pedal-powered open-air aerial attraction, Carnival has created some of the best and highest outdoor vistas ever offered on a cruise ship. Adventurous riders can climb aboard hanging recumbent-like bikes to cycle their way around the 800-foot suspended track with panoramic views from 150 feet above the sea. Nearby there is SkyCourse™, an exhilarating suspended ropes course. Both are part of the expanded outdoor activity park that also includes a new indoor sports hangout, The Clubhouse at SportSquare™, featuring mini-bowling, ping-pong, arcade basketball, sports video gaming and more.

In the largest WaterWorks™ water park in the fleet, kids and kids at heart will find a thrilling array of splash-tastic fun including Kaleid-O-Slide, our first-ever water tube attraction. Riders will hop on inflatable one or two-person rafts that take them on a fun-filled 455-feet adventure of exhilarating twists and turns with stunning kaleidoscopic visual effects.



Big-Time Entertainment at the Multiplex

Carnival Vista's views are truly spectacular inside, too. Carnival partnered with entertainment innovator IMAX® to bring the world's most immersive cinematic experience to sea with the first-ever IMAX® Theatre on a ship. Guests can take in the latest Hollywood blockbusters, IMAX classics and IMAX documentary content on a screen that's three decks high. Next door at the Thrill Theater™, moviegoers can enjoy a multi-dimensional special effects experience.
