Carnival Vista docked in Rhodes.Carnival has found an innovative way to combine excitement with exercise with its brand-new, no extra cost SkyRide. Created by the founder of Rollerblade, it’s like riding a bike, only you’re pedaling while suspended on a rail above the deck. And the view! Breathtaking vistas are found inside the ship as well on the three-deck-high screen of the first IMAX at sea.The upcharging JiJi Asian Kitchen and Bonsai Sushi Bar failed to impress due to ill-trained staff and so-so food. What did wow were the premium Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse (grilled double-cut lamb chops were sublime) and Cucina del Capitano that serves up eggplant parmesan, braised short ribs and fried calamari rivaling the best land-based Italian restaurants.Disconcerting as it was to walk onto a Carnival ship and not be awestruck by towering glass elevators, the three-story, vortex-shaped DreamScape is a grand replacement of the atrium’s signature piece. The HD LED tube changes graphics several times during a cruise, and is just gorgeous.
