Winter... right?

Do yourself a favor on Saturday, January 24: Escape the arctic tundra that is Ninth Avenue and warm up with Carnival Cruise Lines.

The free Take In the Vista event--at the glorious Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Appel Room and Ertegun Atrium--will celebrate the all-new Carnival Vista. She’s a buzzed-about new ship with sweeping oceanfront views at every (yes, every) turn. Trust us: You’ll want to sneak a peek.

From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., there will be snacks and drinks for you and family-friendly activities for the kids (Cat in the Hat selfies for the win). The best part? Chances to win free cruises on this new ship. (Yup. Free cruises.)

So mark your calendar and get out of the cold--for an afternoon, at least.

No purchase necessary. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and Washington, D.C., 18 and older. Ends at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on January 24, 2015. For complete details and rules, visit
