I have to say, I’m pretty excited about the Carnival Vista. The ship looks awesome!

Carnival sometimes gets a bad reputation but really it is a good line- especially for weeklong cruises. I’m not a big fan of Carnival for short cruises–likely where carnival received the “party ship” reputation.

Back to the Vista. Want an IMAX Theatre at sea? Yes please; Vista has one. Staterooms specifically for families? Why not! Family Harbor staterooms and suites have access to the Family Harbor Lounge – where kids and parents can hang out, play games or help themselves to the cookie and snack bar. Of course there is also an adult only area to escape to when the kids are entertained at the kid’s clubs. A water park, a suspending bike ride, it all sounds awesome!

Check out this super cute video on the Vista. (I’m serious it will make you smile!) As I said I am really excited about the launch of this ship. I will be sailing her this winter! The Vista is scheduled to enter service on May 1, 2016 in Europe. (Updated to indicate that she is currently sailing Europe.) She will then come to New York for her US inaugural cruise, and then she will travel to Miami where she will launch year round Caribbean service. What are you most excited about on the Vista? Do you plan to work her into your vacation schedule?

Happy Travels! So many vacations, so little time.

Update: I’ll be cruising the Vista in January, be sure to follow me on social media for pictures. Twitter and Instagram.
