This was a different experience and a new boat for us. I certainly learned the hard way about using gift cards to fund my sign and sail pass. Bare with me through the rant. I was short on cash this trip-and unlike the previous sailing ... Read more

Chose cruise because the VISTA was a new ship and believed it would be an uplifting experience. Had cruised with Carnival twice before and both times it was great. Cruised on the Breeze across the Atlantic ocean. Cruise was probably the ... Read more

We love Carnival. Great service and great food. So many places to sit. Never without a chair. We always get a balcony to enjoy the quite beauty of the sea. The staff went out of their way to welcome us. Also let me say that the ... Read more

Another memorable trip with Carnival. This places us in the "gold" category with thirty-plus days on the water over a period of 25 years , and Carnival still can deliver a terrific experience. The embarkation effort was a bit ... Read more

My sister had used carnival cruise line before. She said that we needed to go on a cruise together taking our mom for mother's day. We left Galveston Texas on May 7, 2016 to go to Cozumel then to Progresso Mexico. Once on board we were ... Read more

We went on this cruise mainly to see if our first impressions of the Carnival Spirit from last year were the same and I'm pleased to say that,if anything, we loved the cruise, the ship, even better this time. The only criticism we have ... Read more

From Trieste, Italy to Barcelona, Spain. Over all, the Vista is arguably quite beautiful though not the most elegant ship, plainly decorated in certain areas but very well in certain areas. It is unlike the other gaudy Carnival ships. ... Read more

embarkation was a chaotic; late sailing need 3 tugs to get out of the port. Needed arms like Popeyes to open cabin and balcony doors. Balcony door has to be shut at all times or alarm sounds. Cruise with the balcony door open is a ... Read more

Placed us (2 Senior Citizens next to 4 rooms filled with loud obnoxious Grads. Slammed their doors and ran through the halls. Had too call security twice. Nothing accomplished and they did not offer to change our cabin. I asked one of the ... Read more

We choose this cruise because the port of Tampa is a 1 1/2 hours drive from home. We have cruised several times. This was the worse. Room was tattered and ragged. No ice bucket, room service menu, no blow dryer no mini fridge. Room ... Read more

I was initially hesitant at booking a cruise on a ship noted for young families. I can honestly say it was one of the best cruises I have ever done. The children were well controlled until the last night when they started to run about but ... Read more

One of the most disturbing and stressful trips ever on a carnival cruise. Invited a friend that cruises on another line. It took me 3-4 years to get her to travel on Carnival with me. I have been going with her on another. We both have ... Read more

We were looking for a fast escape from our hum-drum life (going stir crazy) and had friends already on this cruise so booked at the last minute. There were only a few balcony cabins available a week prior to sailing so I booked one and ... Read more

We are two Carnival gold status grannie cruisers and love embarking out of Galveston for Texas convenience. We signed in for a Cruise Critic meeting, however it apparently never happened, or at least we found no notice of it. Back ... Read more

This ship has hits and misses. They shows were great. The staff the first night was lacking. But the next day things went from poor to perfect! I don't know if everyone had a rough day the first night or what. Robert, our head waiter, was ... Read more

The ship itself is great and we had good time! But overall was slightly disappointed, the victory was a much more fun ship with Way NICER PEOPLE! Guest and staff! This cruise had a very bullyish crowd that made it very unwelcoming and ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit ports of call we'd not visited before. We had a good tour in Amber Cove, DR. We took a cable car ride up the mountain plus a city tour. We booked with Marysol Tours. Highly recommend. In San Juan we took the ... Read more

Just returned from a 4-night sailing on The Paradise. Wondered throughout the trip why so many do not like this ship. Embarkation was totally without any problems. Once on board the ship impressed time-and-again as to the cleanliness; ... Read more
