New on Vista is an 800-foot-long sky ride around the top deck and an IMAX Theater -- both firsts for the industry. The ship also has a pub with a working brewery on site -- a first for a line catering to North Americans.

Brewmaster Colin Presby, 31, has a job at sea that no one else has ever had.

He does his beer-making at the Red Frog Pub & Brewery on the new, 3,954-passengerCarnival Vista. It is Carnival Cruise Line's largest ship and the first North American ship to have a brewery.

The shipboard brewery is producing three distinct types of beer based on recipes from Miami's Concrete Beach Brewery – a brand of Alchemy & Science, a subsidiary of The Boston Beer Company.

He started homebrewing in 2006 with the guidance of one of his chemistry professors at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa. And he has been on the scene ever since – including working with brewing legend Carol Stoudt and as head brewmaster in a brewpub in his hometown of Reading, Pa.
