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.

You might have seen one fish, two fish, a red fish or a blue fish on your last cruise, but I’m sure you didn’t see the fish that Dr. Seuss had in mind. The company that represents the late Dr. Seuss and his beloved books and characters has partnered with Carnival Cruise Lines to offer Seuss at Sea on all Carnival sailings.
