Viewing these virtual tours is extremely easy. I will give you a step by step tutorial on how to find these virtual tours on Carnival's website:
1) Go to Carnival Cruise Line's official website. The Carnival Vista has its own separate ship page & profile that contains a variety of photos, information, deck plans, and more. To make this easy on you, here is a direct link to this page:
http://www.carnival.com/cruise-ships/carnival-vista (Link will open in a separate window)
2. Once you are on the Carnival Vista's page, find the area for deck plans. Go to the deck plans.
3. After you have entered the deck plans, you should see a list of all of the Carnival Vista's decks. Choose a deck that has many public areas, such as the Promenade Deck or Lido Deck. Some decks only contain staterooms and some decks contain many public areas.
4. When you click on the deck of your choice, it should appear. You can zoom in using a scroll bar at the bottom of the deck plan. Find a public area with a red circle that has a white cross in it. This means that you are able to see more on this public area. Click on that red circle and a little pop-up should open that pertains to that area. At the bottom of this little pop-up you should see "Images" and "360-View". Click on the "360 View" to view the virtual tour. If "360 view" is not listed, that probably means this area of the ship has no virtual tour available.
5. After clicking on "360-view", you should see a message that says, "Click Here And Drag For Virtual Tour". After you click your mouse on that, you have the capability to scroll around and look at the view Carnival has provided.

Some Additional Notes:
- These 360 views (virtual tours) Carnival has provided are of renderings. The ship is still under construction, which means the actual public areas are not finished yet.
Thank you Carnival for providing this feature on the Carnival Vista's deck plans! While these are only renderings, cruisers can still use these to tour the ship and get excited about an upcoming Carnival Vista vacation!
