Sassy video gives whirlwind tour of Carnival Vista—narrated by the ship herself

Sassy video gives whirlwind tour of Carnival Vista—narrated by the ship herself
Carnival Vista’s new video tour is a distinct departure from most new ship overviews. For one thing, it's narrated by the ship herself in a sassy voice that mirrors Carnival Vista’s online social media persona (@CarnivalVista).

The video swings from bird’s-eye views of the vessel to swooping careens through public spaces and expansive outdoor decks. 

During the five-minute video, the narrator points to favorites and special spaces for excitement (SkyRide, a 'little mind-blowing number,' and Kaleid-O-Slide with 'light effects and a big splash action'), relaxation (the Serenity adults-only retreat with hammocks), kids (Camp Ocean and Dr. Seuss Bookville) and families (Family Harbor with its own lounge—'help yourself to cookies and snacks,' and the first IMAX Theater at sea for 'just-released blockbuster film[s]').

The variety of dining, drinking and entertainment spots is emphasized, too, along with the wide-open deck spaces and views from the ship.

Carnival Vista will offer Carnival Cruise Line's first brewery, in the RedFrog Pub and Brewery, lobster rolls at the New England-inspired Seafood Shack, family-style Italian dining at Cucina del Capitano, burgers at Guy's Burger Joint, pizza, sushi, a steak house and a full-service Asian restaurant.

The Latin-infused Havana experience will be expanded with Havana staterooms and suites and its own pool.

The atrium, with its 'snazzy' LED column, is 'the perfect spot to plan a fun day or hang out with friends,' and Liquid is 'part live show venue/part night club.'

Carnival Vista is set to debut in Europe in May 2016.
