Good - the staff. Every one gave 110%. We often were greeted with "welcome back" as if the staffer recognized us from a prior cruise - or from a prior day onboard - or observed our color-coded prior cruiser room card. In any ... Read more

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

We had a wonderful time in Carnival Spirit. For 8 days from Sydney to Nomea, Isle of Pines and Lifou ( instead of Mare, last minute detour ) it was a totally enjoyable experience. The quality of food was very good ( we are vegetarians) and ... Read more
