Carnival Cruise Line just celebrated a handover ceremony for its newest cruise ship, the Carnival Vista, at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy.

The 3,954-passenger ship will reposition to Trieste, Italy, where it will depart on its maiden voyage May 1, kicking off a summer schedule in Europe that runs through October 2016. Following a 13-day transatlantic crossing, Carnival Vista will operate a pair of 11-day cruises from New York in November 2016, and then launch year-round Caribbean service from Miami later that month.

Carnival Vista offers a number of unique features, including a suspended cycling experience called SkyRide, the first IMAX Theatre at sea and the RedFrog Pub & Brewery offering three different kinds of beer brewed on board.  

Also new is Family Harbor, with special family accommodations and a family concierge, along with the tropics-inspired Havana staterooms and suites with a dedicated pool area. The ship’s outdoor spaces include a WaterWorks aqua park, highlighted by the 455-foot-long Kaleid-o-slide, the longest slide in the fleet.

Reservations are currently being accepted for the new ship.
