CARNIVAL VISTA is a cruise ship built for Carnival Cruise Line. She is the lead ship of her namesake class, which includes two additional Carnival ships, CARNIVAL HORIZON and CARNIVAL PANORAMA, as well as two Costa ships, COSTA VENEZIA and the upcoming COSTA FIRENZE.
Carnival Cruise Line announced the suspension of all North American itineraries until June 26, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ship was delivered on April 28, 2016. Sea trials were completed in March 2016. The ship's maiden voyage embarked on May 1, 2016 from Trieste, Italy on a 13-day Europe Cruise that ended in Barcelona, Spain. CARNIVAL VISTA is the first ship in the Vista-class cruise ships. The ship was christened in New York City by its godmother, Miss USA 2016 Deshauna Barber.

On August 28, 2016, a wave caused by the ship's maneuver caused extensive damage to the tourist harbor of Marina del Nettuno, near Messina, Italy.

June 21, 2019 it was announced by Carnival that the ship would cancel three scheduled cruises due to performance issues with the ship's propulsion system. BOKA VANGUARD was used as a floating dry dock for repairs to the azipod system, following the closure of one of Grand Bahama Shipyard's drydocks after one of the drydock's cranes collapsed on Royal Caribbean's OASIS OF THE SEAS.

Design and construction
By gross tonnage (and therefore volume), she was the largest ship within Carnival Cruise Line's fleet at that time. The ship was constructed in the Fincantieri shipyard of Monfalcone (Gorizia) and was delivered in April 2016. The first steel for the ship was cut in late February 2014, and the keel was laid in October 2014. The CARNIVAL VISTA Coin Ceremony/Float out was done in June 2015.
CARNIVAL VISTA is the first Carnival cruise ship fitted with ABB azipod propulsion units since the 2004-built CARNIVAL MIRACLE.

From May to October 2016, Vista operated an inaugural season in the Mediterranean before repositioning to New York to offer a pair of cruises. She then moved to her new home-port in Miami in November 2016 where she sailed year-round until September 2018 when she moved to Galveston, Texas. She offered six-, seven-, and eight-day Caribbean cruises with ports of call such as Ocho Rios, Montego Bay, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Aruba, Curaçao, and Bonaire.
After moving to Galveston, CARNIVAL VISTA offers two itineraries: a cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Montego Bay, Jamaica, and a cruise to Cozumel, Belize, and Roatán. On July 2019, when the ship was sailing to Galveston, it temporarily loses its power at the middle of sea after being posted by the company at Facebook.

On 28 November 2019, seven guests were traveling on CARNIVAL VISTA were on an independent bus tour in Belize was crashed and resulting in two dead and five injured.
On 6 March 2020, a man was charged in the alleged assault of the teenage boy aboard the ship.

Coronavirus pandemic
During the coronavirus pandemic, the CDC reported, as early as 2020.04.22, that at least one person who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 had tested positive within 14 days after disembarking.

2020 Same name and owners, based in Galveston.
