Explore Carnival Vista Onboard Activities

Active, onboard fun is part of the Carnival experience, and since Carnival Vista is one of Carnival’s newest and largest ships in the fleet, it’s filled to the brim with more fun activities for kids and adults than you can hope to experience in a single week-long cruise. The newest and most noticeable feature is the suspended SkyRide attraction, a sort of “man-powered” coaster where riders are treated to great views and salty ocean breeze. Nearby on the SportSquare deck, passengers can traverse a ropes course, play basketball, or play a round of mini-golf or bowling. Vista also includes a large WaterWorks aqua park with multiple water slides, a tipping bucket, sprayers, and more for hours of family fun.

Inside the ship, you’ll find an IMAX theater playing a variety of film genres and the 4D Thrill Theater, where you can smell what the characters smell and feel what they feel, such as a gust of wind or wet water. Entertainment throughout the day includes lido deck activities, a lip sync competition which stretches out through the duration of the cruise, and Hasbro, The Game Show where audience members can participate in board games come to life onstage. Evening entertainment includes Playlist Productions shows in the main theater and Punchliner Comedy Club performances — there’s an early show open to all families and a later show for adults only.
