Carnival Cruise Lines Honors Military Community with Carnival Vista, Largest Ship in Fleet
If you haven’t sailed on the newest and largest ship in Carnival Cruise Lines’ fleet, you’re in for a real treat before the end of the year! This massive 133,500-ton vessel has set some groundbreaking records within the cruise industry.
Indeed, Carnival Vista was the first North American-based cruise ship to introduce a brewery onboard. It also had the first IMAX Theatre at sea, most elaborate water park (Kaleid-o-slide) in Carnival’s fleet and most ingenious SkyRide – the unbelievable aerial attraction. So it comes as no surprise that her highly anticipated christening ceremony set to take place in New York City this November is garnering enormous attention. Even better, Deshauna Barber – the first woman serving in the U.S. military to win the title of Miss USA – has been announced the official godmother of the ship.
Earlier this year Deshauna made history with her unprecedented win in the Miss USA competition, but it is her dedication to military personnel in the area of PTSD treatment that has earned her a special place in the hearts of admirers. As a longtime supporter of the military, Carnival Cruise Lines is proud to culminate its year-long celebration of “Honor. Family. Fun” with Carnival Vista’s beautiful christening ceremony. This event is in support of Operation Homefront – an organization dedicated to building strong and stable military families.
