This was our best cruise ever. We almost cry when we disembark. The ship was new. Food was excellent (went with Costa and MSC before so I can compare the standards). Staff super friendly. Cabins were wonderful. There were no lines at the buffet. The breakfast was so rich and there was free sunday, pizza, coffee and home-made ice-cream until late hours. My daughter loved the entertainment ...

Review for Carnival Vista to Transatlantic

Our first trans Atlantic cruise and we had a party of 10 friends. New ship with a few months to work out the bugs and get new crew members up to speed, right? While the food was pretty good and the staff worked hard, our group was still having desert when 2nd seating was coming by (more than once).. Serving delays blamed on computer problems. Theater way too small for size of ship. Balcony ...

On board I discovered the cabin next to us paid $700 less than we did (they booked around a year or so ago). When I told friends we met on board, I discovered they paid $800 less than us. They booked around 2 or 3 months prior to sailing. Both, like us, were on 3 b-to-backs and this was the transatlantic crossing portion. We were ending 15 mths of travel worldwide. We booked a while ago, ...

We choose this ship as it was new, we where a bit unsure about cruising with Canival due to the bad reviews they get and our 1st ever curse was Disney but there was noting to worry about from start to finish it was fantastic. I was cruising with my hubby and 7 year old daughter. Embarkation went smoothly although quite a long wait, we arrived around 1ish can't remember what time we actually ...

As travel agent, always interested in personal experience to better sell the product. From almost 40 cruises taken, I consider this cruise the BEST! The itinerary, the activities on the ship, the eating and drinking venues! My only regret was not having enough time to try more dining options and more activities! Closed down the Havana Club every night, loved the IMAX, acquired a taste for ...

I chose this cruise because I've always enjoyed the other cruises I've taken with Carnival. A few weeks before we sailed, the cruise line called and asked if I would like to upgrade to a balcony cabin and of course I did. When we first saw the cabin I was quite pleased as it had 2 bathrooms, 2 TV's, a sofa and a balcony. My first thoughts were, this is wonderful!! BUT is was NOT. Around 2:30 ...

The embarkation went really well. Once onboard we had a wander round. There was no wow appeal. The cabin was not cleaned properly we had a half eaten snicker in our fridge, a pencil on the floor & a dirty sock under the bed. The rooms were a good size and beds comfortable. Our balcony was never cleaned. The staff were not very friendly or helpful it all seemed a bit chaotic at times. I ...

This cruise was amazing, it was my dream cruise! I traveled with my mom and dad. It was amazing! It was a new ship with only 2 months sailing before our cruise. You could tell that everything was new since the boat was just beautiful. It was my first cruise but not my parents. It was a busy cruise since we stopped every day except 3 days. So th cruise was a bit tiring but that was because it was ...

We are long time Carnival cruisers, this being our 22nd cruise and all but 2 with them. Thus we had a pretty good idea of what to expect and Vista did not let us down. While there are some big changes from the normal layout, we adapted easily. The lobby is not the normal Carnival towering space, but a high tech LED display and only a few decks high. I did miss the atrium and its glass ...

On our 30th cruise, but the first time with Carnival, and I was a bit apprehensive. Lets start with the negatives, this ship is never going to win a beauty pageant, she is ugly. The Atrium is like a Holiday Inn lounge, really bright and very unwelcoming and the cabins, which are large and well appointed but soundproofing is terrible, the cove balcony's had major problems when the storm doors were ...
