|New Carnival Vista Offers Huge Array of New Entertainment and Activities|
Carnival Cruise Line is leading the way in onboard fun with its latest ship Carnival Vista featuring an unparalleled array of new entertainment and adrenaline-inducing thrill experiences, including the cruise industry's first IMAX Theatre at sea.
Other new highlights include SkyRide, an open-air cycling experience suspended high above the ship's top deck and Kaleid-O-Slide, a multi-sensory, 138-metre-long water tube slide.
The 3954-passenger ship, which debuted earlier this month, also features spectacular new Playlist Productions shows, a murder mystery experience and new parties including the South Beach-inspired Serenity Nights, a Rock-N-Glow 80s Deck Party and an Island Deck Party.
"Carnival Vista is an absolute ‘wow' in every respect and we have put together a line-up of entertainment, activities and experiences like nothing else at sea. Our guests are going to love this ship and their biggest challenge will be trying to choose from so many different things to do onboard," Carnival Cruise Line Vice President of Entertainment Sarah Beth Reno said.
Carnival Vista's IMAX Theatre* features a three-deck-high screen, which offers an immersive cinema experience featuring the latest Hollywood blockbusters, family favourites and IMAX documentary content. The 187-seat IMAX Theatre is part of the Carnival Multiplex, which also includes the Thrill Theater, a multi-dimensional experience where seats move back and forth and side to side and viewers are sprayed with water and bubbles to make them feel like they're part of the feature. Also exclusive to Carnival Vista is Thrillogy, a scary-yet-fun multi-sensory horror movie experience within the Thrill Theater that is designed for guests 17 and older.
The ship will also be home to three new high-tech Playlist Productions shows combining captivating live performances with spectacular LED staging and special effects. The three shows include:
· Amor Cubano: A Caribbean Dance Romance, an exhilarating get-on-your-feet show performed by a seven-piece Cuban-inspired band that blends classic Latin songs with today's hits and features authentic reproduction of Carnival Vista's Havana Bar.
· America Rocks!, a high-energy show featuring rock anthems by American artists like Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, Styx and Kiss, evoking the feeling of classic rock concerts from bygone days.
· Flick: The Power of Motion Pictures, a celebration of filmmaking with some of the greatest anthems of all time showcasing songs from popular movies like Footloose, Dirty Dancing and others.
All three shows feature high-energy after-parties in Carnival Vista's atrium, Havana Bar and other spaces where guests can dance and interact with the stars following the show.
