During the 2020 season the Vista Fleet only ran the Vista Star for tours, that will change this season.

Last season the Vista Fleet said its only focus was running the Vista Star safely during the pandemic and now that it seems like the worst of it has passed they are looking forward to getting the Vista Queen back on the water starting in May.

The Vista Fleet also says that they are giving the ship a makeover, they have completely gutted the interior of the ship and in a post on Facebook asked the public what they would like to see in the soon-to-be redone Vista Queen.
