Carnival Cruise Lines Announces Newest Ship to be Named 'Vista'
carnival-red-frog-pub (2 p.m. EDT) -- Carnival Cruise Lines President and Chief Executive Officer Gerry Cahill announced Saturday the line's next newbuild will be named Carnival Vista.

Chief Marketing Officer Jim Berra said Vista will be "extremely connected to the ocean."

He added, "It will look different from (Carnival's most recent newbuild) Breeze and the layout will be different, but there will be a lot of the same spaces onboard."

Berra would not say if it will be a new class of ship or an addition to an existing class (Carnival Breeze is part of the three-ship Dream Class).

He also said Carnival is looking at three key areas for changes: dining, entertainment and kids' clubs.

Dining will be "more contemporary," moving more toward open dining, entertainers will include performers as well as musicians and the kids' clubs will use innovation and technology to make Camp Carnival "more memorable."

Vista, set for delivery in winter 2016, will be built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The 4,000-passenger, 135,000-ton ship will feature Carnival's 2.0 enhancements as well as a number of innovations unique to the ship, which will be the line's 25th "Fun Ship."
