A tour of cabin 2286 on the Carnival Vista cruise ship. It's an unusual type of cabin called a Cove Balcony cabin. They sit low on the ship, on deck 2, which gives you a feeling of being very connected to the ocean during your cruise. You can see and hear and feel the power of the ocean as you sit on your balcony or stay inside your cabin and enjoy the view out the window.
This was not my cabin on the Carnival Vista... I was staying in a Havana Suite... but my friends Kimble and Liz were kind enough to let me shoot this video in their room so I could show everyone on YouTube what's so special about a Cove Balcony.
I made a mistake in narrating the video when I said that all the cove balcony cabins are essentially identical to the one in this video. In retrospect, I think that's probably incorrect. I suspect that only some of the cove balcony cabins have the additional bed that folds down out of the ceiling. Sorry about that!
This video was shot with a DJI Osmo, which is a camera with an integrated gimbal to create smooth motion-stabilized video even when walking around with the camera handheld. It uses a nice wide angle lens that works well when shooting in tight spaces like a cruise ship cabin.
