Valentine's Cruise

Review for Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Western

We were not worried about the Superbowl on this cruise, we were interested in Valentine's day. Savannah was such a fun cruise director that I wish she was going to be the CD on the Dream in November. If we wanted to see a show, we would have to start lining up 45 minutes to an hour before the doors would open or we'd be stuck with bad seats. The 1 comedy show we saw was funny. I was mad at the ...

Sailed this cruise for New Years and loved almost everything about it. The morning that we boarded in Galveston there was a super dense fog that delayed our boarding by about five hours, which didn’t set a fantastic tone for starting off on our first cruise, but this event turned out to be the only negative comment that I could muster up from the entire seven day voyage. The free food onboard was ...

We chose this cruise for our 2nd cruise. After taking a 5 day cruise, we chose this 7 day to see what we missed out on. The port itinerary was also a factor in our choice. Seeing Roatan, Belize and Cozumel was great. In our travels, we really try to find a load of fun but also we try to find places we can learn about and explore. We live about 2 hours away so we drove to the home port. No ...

We chose this cruise as we have cruised over 15 times with Carnival in the past and had never experienced their larger mega ship class. The negatives first: the layout of the ship in regards to pools, restaurants, casino, and especially bathroom placement was ridiculous and incredibly inefficient. There are no hot tubs at the main midship pool, and then there is no pool on the serenity deck which ...

This was one of my all time favorites. The cruise director was awesome and the staff were top notch. Ports of call were ok and I have been to most of them before. That was ok because the ship made up for that. SO MUCH FUN!!! The family harbor cabin was so nice. Breakfast, snacks and coffee always ready. Very clean and well stocked. The piano bar was our favorite at night but there were tons of ...

We had to go on spring break due to grandson being in high school now. I was worried about crowds on spring break and worried about Vista. Saw a lot of negative reviews regarding elevator waits, decor, food, chairs in lounges etc. I was pleasantly surprised. Decor didn't bother me at all. Didn't miss the lack of big atrium. Elevators were no problem other than not being air conditioned. My husband ...

We were asked to go as part of a group of 14. We have been on several cruises and were interested in checking out Carnival's largest ship out of Galveston. Matt the Cruise Director was excellent. Our balcony room was spotless, and was kept tip top. Really good water pressure. Previous balcony rooms directly overlooked the water, but this ship had a 5th floor that was out farther than our 6th ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This will be a detailed review from a first time cruiser. We decided to go on our cruise to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. Our departure port was Galveston and we decided to drive down the night before and stay the night. We were not impressed with Galveston. The city did not have much to offer and seemed pretty run down. We stayed at a hotel that offered to let us park our car in their lot ...

We booked these cruises as soon as it was announced that the Vista was coming to Galveston. We were lucky enough to go do a Mediterranean cruise on her and loved the ship. We booked Cabin 2451 in the Family Harbor area as we had on our previous cruise. My family consists of myself, my husband and twin boy and girl 13 year olds so having 2 bathrooms with 2 showers comes in handy. We received ...

The biggest complaints I have are: 1) NEED A POOL ON THE Serenity LEVEL. The Hot tubs were good, but seriously needs a pool for that level. 2) MORE elevators to the Serenity level. There is only 1 elevator and it stops on every floor. That became annoying. I never ate at the "extra restaurant and there was no need to. My husband had the seafood shack on lido several times and he ...
