Our Travels

Carnival Vista

Well…we were at sea and loving it!

Fred and Elena Pelsinger owners of Katy Van Travel, Inc. were privileged to sail on the brand new Carnival Vista during its inaugural season in Europe.  We sailed July 19th 2016 on a 10 day voyage Athens, Greece to Barcelona, Spain.  The ports of call were Rhodes, Greece; Valletta, Malta; Messina, Sicily; Naples, Italy; Rome, Italy; Livorno, Italy; Marseilles, France and Barcelona, Spain.  Wow!!! We really enjoyed and had the opportunity to visit sights that we had not seen before and eat…Did I mention we ate our way through each port?  There was great food in every port and plenty of restaurants to recommend to our clients. We were able to participate in so many exciting sightseeing tours to fill the days and have the  photos to capture our experiences for you to see.

The Carnival Vista was a destination in itself.  The Water Park was packed with adults and kids enjoying the days at Sea and the SkyRide (bike ride in the sky) and the SkyCourse (ropes course challenge) were just amazing.  Plenty of action everywhere you looked. Did I mention Dive-In Movies, IMAX Theater or the Video Arcade? You couldn’t be bored onboard the Carnival Vista. We loved ‘The Punchliner Comedy Club’ where each night there were two family comedy shows and two ‘R-Rated’ shows to please every attendee.

Food…Well with all the great food in the dining room and specialty restaurants aplenty…you couldn’t go wrong.  Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse is absolutely wonderful. Ji Ji Asian Kitchen, Cucina del Capitano, Bonsai Sushi, BlueIguana Cantina, Guy’s Burger Joint and more are enough for any cruiser to love including a 24 hour Pizzeria del Capitano.

Call me for more details as my mouth is watering just thinking about our cruise and planning to go again on the high seas…
