Carnival Cruise Line’s biggest ship ever, the 3,936-passenger Carnival Vista, will introduce several new perks for fans of the Fun Ship brand.

The Doral-based cruise line revealed details about the new 133,500-ton vessel at a media event in New York City.

The ship, which starts sailing in May of 2016, will include the first IMAX Theatre at sea, an onboard brewery, a suspended open-air cycling ride called SkyRide and a family-focused hangout area. Indoor and outside seating will be available at some restaurants, a new feature for the line.

For the first time in three years, Carnival will have a ship stationed in Europe when Vista launches in Italy. After sailing European itineraries from May through October, the ship will head to New York City to operate from that region.
