The SkyRide is a first-of-a-kind shipboard activity. Adventure seekers will pedal hanging recumbent-like cycles at up to 25 miles an hour speeds an hour across an elevated 800ft-long track, while enjoying panoramic sea views. The best part is that there will be no charge for it.

SkyRide will be one of the many open-air amenities aboard Carnival Vista. The ship will also boast the 455ft-long Kaleid-o-Slide, the longest water slide of Carnival Cruise Line to date, as well as SportSquare recreation area with a basketball court, mini-golf course, suspended ropes course, and more.

Carnival Vista debuts on May 1 with a 13-day voyage from Trieste, Italy which is part of a schedule of Mediterranean cruises through October. The ship will then reposition to New York for a pair of sailings then shifts to Miami FL for year-round Caribbean cruises beginning in November.
