We haven’t published an issue of the BIG times in quite a while, but there is a BIG news highlight we want to share!
Carnival Cruise Line, the world’s largest cruise line, announced the details of what will be its largest ship, the Carnival Vista, arriving later this year. I attended the press conference two weeks ago in New York City, and was treated to a preview of some of the special—and truly unique—features this ship will offer.
Among the BIG thrills you can expect on board:
Carnival’s largest water park will include the line’s first Kaleid-O-Slide water tube attraction. You, alone or with a friend, will hop on an inflatable raft and travel 455 feet through a twisting, turning enclosed tube with stunning kaleidoscopic visual effects.
SkyRide is a first for the cruise industry. This is a pedal-powered open-air aerial attraction, allowing adventurous riders (not me) to cycle one of two hanging recumbent-like bikes around the 800-foot suspended track. You’ll enjoy panoramic views. You’ll also be dangling 150 feet over the sea.
The entertainment options will include the world’s first IMAX® Theatre on a ship. You’ll get to see brand new releases on a three-story tall screen! Next to this is the Thrill Theater, offering moviegoers a multi-dimensional special effects experience.
Carnival Vista will launch its Mediterranean sailings in May. In November, it will begin cruises out of the New York port, although these itineraries are still to be announced.
Hey YOU! Go BIG!
