I had not cruised with Carnival in over 10 years. As a travel agent I sell A LOT of their cruises but I personally have been a Royal Caribbean fan. We decided to check out the Vista because she looked amazing and we had been wanting to ... Read more

The Food has become a POOR selection. Its not the original Carnival food that made it something to talk about. Its more Corporate. The Lido buffet sitting area increased by 10percent. Not enough to handle the 1000 more people on the ... Read more

I travelled with my wife, 5 year old son and 81 year old mother in law so I was worried that it would be hard to find a cruise to suit the needs of such a mixed group. My worries were unfounded. The cabins were very nice and fairly ... Read more

Overall the ship is fantastic, there is more than you can possibly do in a seven day cruise unless you stay on the ship during the day which defeats the object of a cruise. Red Frog pub, excellent, Dive-in movies really good and where ... Read more

We were looking for a family vacation to celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. There was a group of seven ages 18 to 81. The itinerary looked good and we were able to get excellent airfares to Barcelona. We booked this trip 10 months ... Read more

The cabin is very clean and convenient. The MDR food is good, service is OK, met our expectation. The port of call menu is very good, let us to taste local variety. The sky ride and sky walk are fun. The shows are few and low quality, but ... Read more

We have only cruised on Carnival and had wanted to cruise the Mediterranean. When we saw the Vista was coming out in 2016 we booked the cruise within the first week. We were very pleased with the ship. We did feel that the Atrium was ... Read more

Should be called the Carnival Waiting, because all we seemed to do was wait for everything on the ship. Not enough elevators for the size and capacity of the ship - embarkations and disembarkations were a nightmare at every port. Not ... Read more

The Carnival Vista is a real stunner, that's for certain. Gleaming white and topped with waterslides, the much-touted SkyRide and the iconic Carnival funnel, this ship certainly makes a good first impression. Having sailed on its ... Read more

After a few days in Barcelona post-cruise I can now reflect on our 10 days spend on the Carnival VISTA and comment on many aspects of the ship itself, as opposed to the ports of call. It was not possible in such a port intensive cruise ... Read more

Was excited to be on a new cruise ship. The ship itself is beautiful, with many amenities and things to do. 5000 passengers is too much. Long lines at the buffets, uncaring US passengers dropping food and leaving it on floors and ... Read more
