Carnival Vista

Built to bring you closer to the sea, Carnival Vista opens things up with outdoor spots like Havana Bar & Pool, SkyRide at SportSquare, and Seafood Shack… plus plenty of family- and kid-friendly spaces like the first IMAX at sea. They’ve even got custom staterooms for Cuban culture lovers, or just families that like to stay close. Join Carnival on this journey — follow along as they build something great.

Age Restrictions

Guests are required to be 21 years old (on embarkation day) to travel. Guests under the age of 21 must be accompanied in the same stateroom by a parent or guardian 25 or older. The exceptions Carnival will make to this policy are: 

Married minor couple - The booking must be documented that the couple is married. The couple must have proof of marriage at embarkation or they will be denied boarding without the benefit of a refund. 

Domestic Partners/Same-Sex Union minor couple - The booking must be documented that the couple are legal Domestic Partners/Same-Sex Union. The couple must have legal proof of partnership/union at embarkation or they will be denied boarding without the benefit of a refund. Guest ages will be verified at embarkation. 

Guests not conforming to this policy will be denied boarding and assessed a 100% cancellation penalty. NO exceptions will be made at embarkation. 

The Group policy is slightly different because of stricter group terms and conditions including mandatory chaperones, damage deposits and other considerations. Please call for more details.

Tipping

It is customary to extend gratuities/tips to the shipboard staff for their services. How much to tip is a personal matter and completely up to the guest. Our recommended guidelines in regards to what is appropriate are as follows:

Service Per Guest, Per Day
Dining Room Services $6.10
Stateroom Services $3.90
Alternative Services: distributed to kitchen, entertainment, guest services and other hotel staff members. $2.00
Total Gratuities $12.00

 

  • For beverage purchases, 15% of the bill is automatically added to the Sail & Sign charge.
  • Room Service staff may be tipped as service is rendered.
  • Tipping applies regardless of the dining options selected, such as eating at the casual dining restaurant or Open Seating Dining.

There are two ways of extending gratuities to the shipboard staff as follows:

Gratuity Program

  • For the guest's convenience, we automatically add the recommended gratuities to the guest's on board Sail & Sign Account on embarkation day.
  • Should a guest not be satisfied with the service they receive, they can contact the Guest Services desk while onboard. This will allow us to address their concerns in a timely and appropriate fashion. At the discretion of the guest, they may adjust the gratuities at any time while onboard. Gratuities will be deemed undisputed unless a request to modify is received prior to disembarking the ship.
  • Guests less than two years of age are not required to extend gratuities.
  • For Cruises-to-Nowhere, all gratuities must be pre-paid and automatically added during the booking process.
  • For cruises that begin in Barbados, all gratuities are pre-paid and automatically added during the booking process.

Prepaid Gratuity Program

  • Gratuities are pre-arranged and can be added at the time of booking or anytime up to the sail date. If already booked, guests can contact their Travel Professional to add prepaid gratuities; if booked directly with Carnival, contact us at 800 764-7419.
  • All guests on each booking must prepay the gratuities with the exception of children less than two years of age.
  • Should a guest not be satisfied with the service they receive, they can contact the Guest Services desk while onboard. This will allow us to address their concerns in a timely and appropriate fashion. At the discretion of the guest, they may adjust the gratuities at any time while onboard. Gratuities will be deemed undisputed unless a request to modify is received prior to disembarking the ship.
  • The dollar amount for gratuities will appear in the Miscellaneous Charge field on the booking. The guest’s E-Document will indicate if gratuities have been prepaid.
  • Guests, who have prepaid their gratuities as of 7/07/14 (at a rate of $11.50 per guest, per day) for cruise departures 10/09/14 and onward, will not be affected by the increase.

Life on Board

Dining

The Chef's Table

The Chef's Table

When you cruise Carnival Vista, take a seat at The Chef's Table. At this gathering of fellow foodies you'll indulge in a cascading series of delectable plates as our chef shows off a little, all to the delight of the discerning palates seated around the table. Dinner is the main event, but prepare to have your eyes opened as you enjoy a galley tour, for a behind-the-scenes look at where the magic happens.

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

High cuisine meets great atmosphere at Fahrenheit 555, a dining experience that stands toe-to-toe with some of the best steakhouses on land. This one features your choice of steak cuts, lobster, lamb and more, and inside, there's even a full bar to pour great pairings. Outside, there's seating for dining al fresco. They're the building blocks of an amazing experience - delectable elements that combine with great service to offer an evening to remember.

Horizons Restaurant

Horizons Restaurant

Every night at dinner you'll find your menu featuring a selection of favorites' and perhaps future favorites, new and surprising dishes to try because your taste buds don't get a vacation' Bring all your buds and gather around a big table for a sit-down meal, complete with a fresh design twist you can't miss' Choose Your Time Dining and do dinner - plus a pre-dinner drink at Horizon's full bar - whenever the time is right'

Bonsai Sushi

Bonsai Sushi

So maybe you've had sushi before, but you've never had it like Bonsai Sushi, Carnival Vista's onboard seafood-and-soy-sauce spot. Dine indoors or out, amidst expertly-pruned bonsai trees while enjoying sit-down service and a menu of delectable catches, plus soups, sides, sakes and desserts. So the next time you're taking an onboard stroll, stop at Bonsai Sushi for a roll, a box or maybe a whole ship - it satisfies two.

Onboard Activities

Cherry On Top

Cherry On Top

Cherries make the already-sweet a little bit sweeter. That's why you'll find Cherry on Top, our candy-and-more store, on Carnival Vista. This is the go-to spot for the sweet stuff, but there are surprises in store, like a premium ice cream counter with goodies for mixing and topping. Cherry on Top also features accessories for celebrations, plus great gifts to take home for that special someone, even if - admit it - that someone happens to be you!

Havana Bar and Pool

Havana Bar and Pool

On Carnival Vista you'll find Havana Bar & Pool, an onboard retreat that's an easily-accessible paradise by day, and a hot music-and-dancing spot at night. Grab a seat at the bar and order up handcrafted Cuban cocktails like the classic Mojito or traditional Daiquiri, plus fresh and free Cuban snacks. The bar is just steps from the Havana Pool, whose ocean view and atmosphere mingles with the bar's own, for a bit of that old-time Cuban resort flavor.

Imax Theater

Imax Theater

Carnival Vista features two theaters, and we call the whole great big thing Carnival Multiplex. Behind door number one is an actual IMAX Theatre in all its big-screen, big-fun glory... the first of its kind you'll find anywhere at sea. And behind door number two? Surprise! It's Thrill Theater, the 3D experience where jump-off-the-screen visuals are only the beginning of a truly moving experience.

RedFrog Pub and Brewery

RedFrog Pub and Brewery

The next-generation RedFrog Pub has a little something extra. Carnival Vista has an amazing brewery that churns out its own microbrew options. It's all about the beer here, but everything else there is to love about RedFrog Pub is back - the snacks, the games, the live music, plus atmosphere by the pint.

Serenity Adult Only Retreat

Serenity Adult Only Retreat

The Serenity Adult-Only Retreat is a world of complete peace, sea breezes and swaying hammocks. On Carnival Vista, we're taking the chill to new highs with even more options for stretching out and getting comfy. And now, you can get a light bite with a chopped salad station right here. Serenity's the place to do the stuff that's hard to do in everyday life - reconnect with your partner, finish that book, or do absolutely, blissfully, nothing at all.

SportSquare

SportSquare

SportSquare on Carnival Vista makes not only winning - but even simply playing - fun. At the all-new SkyRide, strap in and zip around a bike course high above the deck. The Clubhouse features indoor activities like mini-bowling and arcade-style basketball... while soccer, volleyball and ping-pong are just steps away. Try for a hole-in-one at SkyGreens, sink "threes" on the basketball court, and push yourself to amazing new heights at SkyCourse, our ropes course.
