Vista Very Disappointing

Take plenty of money if you are on Vista. It was the worst Carnival cruise we have done. Can you imagine you pay extra 6 bucks for fish and chips for lunch. We never met our cabin staff and the reflections restaurant was like some sort of cafe in a department store. The food and the service was about the same. There were no TV movies but if you want to see a movie in the theater you pay. You ...

This is my 3rd time going on a cruise ship with Carnival. I have to say I was a little worried about the ship after reading some of the others. We flew in a few days before the trip to see Barcelona and thought the area was very pretty. Getting on the boat was very easy and was less than 20 minutes. The staff were very helpful and seemed to move people right along. Getting off was just as ...

I had a great cruise on the Vista and would definitely go on her again. I will now tell you about the things I liked and did not like as much about the Vista. The Ship - I really liked the look of the Vista from the outside, from the shore side. Also I thought the outside decks and amenities were great. I loved the Havana pool bar and outside area. One really good thing that the Vista ...

Cruise Mistake

Chose this cruise as it was a new ship and we thought the price was good. The ship, food, entertainment and service was a big disappointment to both of us. This was our eighth cruise, our first and last with Carnival. They can learn a lot from there competitors as a lack of training was obvious where the staff especially in the dining areas were concerned. The so called entertainment at night, ...

The number of various ports was exceptional - providing something of interest for everyone. Carnival Vista is beautiful and spacious. Crew is most attentive to ensuring it is tidy and clean. Our cabin steward team was prompt, energetic, and attentive to ensure our room was fresh and clean. Exceptional outgoing personalities - respectful, courteous, and thoughtful. Replenished our ice ...

We have never cruised before, envisioning cruises as a boring places. where you just ate and read books all day. We opted to cruise the Mediterranean because we are a family of four (two children ages 8 and 11) and it seemed like a great way to get an overview of the area without having to change hotels everyday and waste time on trains getting from place to place. I am pleased to say that our ...

Would definitely recommend this ship, and we do not usually sail with Carnival. Chose this cruise because we loved the itinerary and long days in each port. We knew this was a very port intensive cruise rather than a laid back relaxing cruise like going to the Caribbean. We mostly joined many private excursions which saved us a great deal of money, and allowed us to travel comfortably and meet ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first cruise and we loved it. We travelled with our 2 young children - aged 2 and 3. We had a family Harbour room (2400) with large balcony which was perfect. A bunk bed and sofa bed for the children. For us there was lots of wardrobe space with hangers. (yes you might have to double up a few shirts!) These rooms have access to the Family Harbour lounge where you could get breakfast ...

We cruised on the CARNIVAL VISTA September 23rd itinerary from Barcelona in a Havana Suite. We had a wonderful cruise experience overall. The Suite was just beautiful, it was very spacious for two people. We dealt with bass noise from the band playing in the bar until late each night and slamming of the hallway for leading to it, however earplugs helped. The cabana patio was not as private as I ...

This is Carnivals newest ship, Carnival Vista. It is a beautiful ship, very nicely done! The ship is quite spacious, we never felt crowded at any time on the ship. The embarkation experience was flawless, the room was a Balcony Stateroom and was of average size. The staff members were always friendly and helpful, especially our cabin steward, who was always gracious. The food was better ...
