Boarding the boat with priority boarding didn't happen. Mass amounts of people and rooms not ready. Didn't have enough seating at lunch in the market place after every one boarded. For being a new boat. the lack ...

The Greyhound of Ocean Travel

Now we know why Carnival was described as the "Walmart" of all cruise lines. If you like throwing yourself into crowds of loud, obnoxious, unpolished people; then this cruiseline is for you! With almost thirty ...

Wonderful vacation

Overall, I could not have asked for a better cruise! We chose the Vista because we wanted a newer ship with lots of on board activities. It wasn't perfect, but really was wonderful. We arrived in Miami the ...

Bigger doesn't mean better

This was only my second cruise, the first being the Carnival Freedom in April 2016. The Vista may be the biggest and one of the newest ships in Carnivals fleet, but overall it was very hit or miss. Pros- More ...

Enjoyable trip but could have been better (I would give 3 1/2 stars)

I'll split this into a few subtopics and rate what I did and did not like. This is only the second cruise I've been on, so I'm by no means an expert but I'll compare it to Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. ...
