I love new ships and couldn't wait for the Carnival Vista. My difficulties with the ship are really ship specific. Between the forward elevators and the atrium there is a significant hump, approximately 4 inches above the floor level. ... Read more

This was a family cruise of sixteen people. Our cabin was roomy, clean, cool and big enough for eight grandchildren to use as a focal point. The food was acceptable but below our previous experienced cruise. Our first carnival cruise was ... Read more

Travel agent recommended it. I am not likely to ever sail Carnival again unless a real steal. Carnival does not understand the definition of Serenity. It was as loud as the other pool areas where adults and children swam and played. ... Read more
