Just got off the Carnival Vista, 7-day cruise from Galveston to Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. We had a good time, as always, but there were a few things that bugged/perplexed me. First, the good stuff: We didn’t have to wear a mask anywhere during the entire 7 days! Hallelujah! Kendall Fyre is a super Cruise Director. She has the energy of 10 people. There are plenty of things to ...

We enjoyed the serenity deck(15), the thermal suite, cucina del Capitano restaurant, where I had the Best meal of the cruise when I ordered the short ribs. So very tender an tasty. I enjoyed being able to choose whether to relax or join an activity. We must have walked 50 miles per day on the ship alone.I didn't like the nosiness of the crew,or one staff member from the kitchen informing me that ...

Our kids took this cruise in 2019. They wanted us to go this time. We got a good deal on the price. The itinerary included Cozumel, Roatan Island and Belize. We also liked the choices of food and onboard activities. We got off of the ship at all three ports. At Roatan Island (by Honduras), Carnival did a great job of ensuring that the place was conducive to a fun day. The water was warm and ...

I first want to say I have never written a negative review in my life. But we work very hard to save for our vacations and I know others do too. I simply want to let people know that the Vista is not the average cruise. It is what I would consider a bottom of the barrel cruise. We chose Vista excited to see the new Havana area. When we booked we were told it was open after 7 p.m. When we ...

(First, thank you to all who post!) We were a family of 7 with 3 children. This ship has soooo much to do for all ages! Kudos to the kids' Ocean Club, the water/sports activities, and the entire staff. Generally, we all loved the experience on being on Carnival's newest ship. IMHO: PROs: Spacious interior cabin Amazing kids' activities and programs. Lots of sports and ...

The ship is newer, so that's a plus. Matt, the cruise director was AHHMAZING, the food was okay. The entertainment was good when we had it. Didnt have a show every night. The comedians were great. This ship DOES NOT have glass elevators in the atrium which contributed to very crowded elevators everywhere. Not sure the artsy funnel piece that replaced those glass elevators was a good move. In the ...

The Havana area made this cruise. The bartenders were amazing and it was great to get away from it all. Our cabin was nice and clean and well cared for. I think the playlist productions have either gone down in quality since I started cruising Carnival 12 years ago, or my standards have gone up. I've seen high school performers with more talent. I did enjoy all the trivia and contests. I went to ...

We picked this last minute becasue the dates matched the week the kids were out of school. We were skeptical about the cruise line butno regrets. The rooms were good, loved the location on deck 3. The rooms attendant was very kind and attentive. I even liked the smell of the body wash in the bathroom. The kids club was fun but the Circle C had terrible hours and supervision. Food was ...

I'm sitting on deck 5 waiting to end this horrible cruise. I call it horrible because of the ship. I was so excited to get on the new big ship Vista. And this ship is the worst. I've been on numerous other carnival ships. And this one is bad. It is like being in a dungeon. It is dark and cramped. There are no walkways within the ship that are open with windows. You walk in dark crowded hallways. ...

On the vista all the buffet food was so terrible we couldn't eat it, it was either over cooked or just plain bad. the dinning rooms food was better but most of the nights the food was not excitable. this was the worst ship I have ever been on, most of the time they closed one buffet line and everyone had to go to the other line, which the food was so terrible we didn't eat. all the other ships I ...
