Carnival Vista Havana Cabins

Carnival Vista

Carnival Vista in Rhodes, Greece

Carnival‘s newest cruise ship, the Vista, introduces two new categories of staterooms – Family Harbor and Havana Cabins. These are the first cabins on Carnival’s ships to have an area of the ship reserved exclusively for passengers booked in those cabins. One of the things we always liked about Carnival was that all public spaces were for all passengers, but the people in the cabins associated with the private spaces probably enjoy them.

The Havana Cabins are mainly grouped around the Havana Bar located at the back of deck 5. There are also a few at the stern of the next two decks up.

The bar is open to all passengers on the ship, but the pool area with two hot tubs and lots of deck chairs is only for the Havana cabin occupants all day long. Passengers must be at least 12 years old to stay in a Havana cabin.

Other passengers can go beyond the sliding doors into the pool area at the back of the bar after 7pm.

Havana Cabins are decorated in the Cuban theme of the Havana area. Deck 5 has inside and Havana Cabana cabins as well as Havana Cabana suites. Most of these cabins have a maximum occupancy of 2 guests, but there are a few that take 3 or 4.

The Havana Cabana cabins and suites each have an outdoor space – the cabana. Since deck 5 is the promenade deck these cabanas extend quite a bit farther than the balconies of the rooms above. That extended area can be seen both by people in other cabanas in the row and people on balconies or public decks above.

Each cabana has a little gate out onto the promenade deck. While the promenade deck is a public space forward of the Havana area, it has a locked gate at the start of the cabin area that only the Havana passengers can go through. Their private stretch of the promenade deck also leads to the Havana pool area giving those with the cabana rooms outside access where they can get to the pool without walking through the bar.

Decks 6 and 7 each have a few Havana premium balcony and aft extended balcony cabins at the back of the ship, and deck 7 has a couple interior cabins designated Havana as well. These cabins have a stairway decorated in the Havana theme that takes them down to the Havana bar and pool without having to go forward to any of the ship’s main stairways. All of these rooms hold just 2 guests. There are no cabins specifically designated as accessible in the Havana area.

The Havana Bar has a live band playing Cuban music in the evenings. They also serve Cuban bites food – which you have to pay for – as well as drinks.

    They look wonderful and so different! This year we are going on two different lines, Viking Ocean on their newest ship in three weeks, and G Adventures to the northern arctic, and closing the year with a 31 day LA-Buenos Aires. All on much smaller ships though.

  2. Oh my God that looks amazing
