Carnival Vista Commences Year-Round Service From PortMiami

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

To officially welcome Carnival Vista to its Miami homeport, Carnival Vista Captain Stefano Battinelli and PortMiami Assistant Director Fred Wong participated in a traditional maritime plaque exchange prior to the ship’s inaugural departure from Miami.

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.

Miami has been Carnival Cruise Line’s home since the company’s inception in 1972.

Carnival Vista kicked off its new schedule with a six-day cruise to Grand Turk, Ocho Rios, and Nassau that departed on Sunday. The ship’s year-round schedule officially begins December 3. Six-day cruises stop at Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, while the eight-day itineraries visit Grand Turk, Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, San Juan, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, and La Romana in the Dominican Republic, among others. 

The ship will also offer a lineup of one-time voyages, including a five-day cruise departing December 11 and seven-day voyages departing December 17 and 24, that port at a selection of the Caribbean’s newest destinations: Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic, Mahogany Bay, Grand Turk, Belize, San Juan, St. Thomas, and Cozumel, depending on the itinerary.
