This was my first cruise in the US. We paid 299 each for a balcony room. The room was huge compared to my cruise on Princess. There was a long bench built into the wall, and plenty of storage place. My one complaint about the room is that ... Read more

While this cruise/ship is not the most elegant, it certainly is a lot of value. Our cabin was quite adequate (an inside cabin) as we spend very little time in it. The food was quite good, especially in the dining ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its itinerary and were not disappointed with that. However found the Pride was the worst of any ship on our 14 cruises. 2 nights had nothing appealing to 4 of the 6 at our table. The other couple were first ... Read more

We wanted to go on a New ship not just refurbished. The ship itself was nice, enjoyed the new layout. More decks with things other than rooms on them. Staff seemed to be very confused as if this was their first cruise. That was in all ... Read more

This was going to be our introduction to the New Carnival Vista, but after getting a great deal on the TA, this was our second trip. The embarkation was a mess in NYC. What I heard later was that 250 Travel agents were given the ROYAL ... Read more

The ports of call were the reason I chose this cruise. Embarkation was a nightmare. Disembarkation was very smooth. The cabins are typical carnival, nice storage space. I had a cove balcony, loved it. Cabin 2364. I heard very little noise ... Read more

This was my 29th Carnival cruise. If I was blindfolded and placed on the ship, I would not have been able to recognize it as a Carnival ship by the interior decor, which was pleasing and tasteful. But when I saw the plastic trees on Lido, ... Read more

Ship information Having cruised on numerous cruise lines (RCL, Celebrity, NCL etc) and other Carnival ships, you can tell the Vista sells itself as a ship for entertainment rather than for exceptional service. The ship itself is ... Read more

Although the décor of this new ship was lacking for me, this was a wonderful cruise across the Atlantic. I loved our stops in Gibraltar and the Azores. Ponta Delgada and the Azores is one of my favorite places on earth. It is ... Read more

We had looked at this cruise for some time but trying to put a package together with airfares, transfers, Hop on/Hop off bus, hotels in Barcelona and the actually cruise itself was to say the least overwhelming. We just happened to get an ... Read more
