We chose to do an 8 day southern Caribbean cruise with Carnival for our honeymoon because you get the best of both worlds - a luxurious, relaxing beach vacation paired with the fun and excitement of being on a cruise ship. Both embarkation ... Read more

We have taken a number of other Carnival cruises and have been willing to accept some concession in service in return for reduced cruise fees. However, our cruise on the Carnival Glory was a disappointment. I am not certain if this is a ... Read more

So to say that I wasted my hard earned money is an understatement. The rooms are not upgraded in the least, our room had no air for the first 2 days. I literally saw no difference between this cruise and other 20 + years cruise ships ... Read more

This cruise was for our Vocal Team production with Celebrity Judicators. As a group function the ship is not designed for putting most of the group at any one experience. Ok that being said the embarkation event and getting on was ... Read more

I chose this cruise because the traveling dates were extremely limited, and this cruise fit the bill. We were a family of 14 traveling, and we booked 4 staterooms, 2 of them suites. Embarkation was a disaster because the person that ... Read more

The Vista is a beautiful ship and has a lot of new technology and a great layout. We really spent most of our time at the waterpark and the main Lido deck. I wish the main pool was bigger and they had some hot tubs in the main area. The ... Read more

I had a great experience on my recent cruise. From embarkation in Miami to Disembarkation in Miami, it was great. I only have a few cons, but I will get to those. I think the cruise director "Matt" is the number one reason the ... Read more

So, the brand new ship in Carnival's line lived up to its billing. Our cruise we had 4,800 people, but you never really felt that way as the ship is large enough to disperse crowds all over the place. We had balcony room 2381, which was ... Read more

Carnival is known as a budget friendly cruise line catering to young people and families. We spent a week aboard the Carnival Glory as a multi-generational group of 7 which included 2 older adults, myself and my husband and our three ... Read more

I gave this cruise 1 star, but only because there was no option to give ZERO stars. This is not our first cruise and not our first stay in a suite. We had a total of 39 people in our group that we gathered together for this particular ... Read more

We did this cruise as a graduation trip for our daughter. It was our first time to go on a cruise but we have heard good things from some of our friends who have already gone on a cruise so we had high expectations. Our cruise was very ... Read more

I cruise at least twice a year and it is my favorite way to vacation. I had not cruised with Carnival for a number of years and decided to give them another try on their new ship, the Vista. First, this was the most unhappy staff I have ... Read more

Let me just start out and say I am not sure why there are so many negative reviews on the Vista. We had a great week with our kids! Don't let all the negative scare you away. We had 2 cabins in the Havana Area, an Aft Wrap on Deck 7 ... Read more

We booked this cruise for the Vista and nothing more. Wanted to experience Carnival's newest ship. I must say there were parts of the cruise that were terrific and others that were not. Embarkation in Miami went smoothly. Food ... Read more

My review really isn't fair when it comes down to it. I tend to compare ship to ship and well this ship REALLY lacks the "wow" of the other ships I have been on. Everything from the decor of the ship to the staff aboard it just ... Read more

We chose this for the dates available and as a first cruise for our 12 year old. I had read some negative reviews, but decided to make up my own mind. So glad I did! The ship was spotlessly clean. Always could see cleaning being done ... Read more
