My hubby and I took a Carnival cruise for our honeymoon. Twenty years later we took our two kids with us for our Anniversary. It was pretty much what we remembered. A ton of people! But for the most part it's not really bothersome. Just try to go to the pool or dining room or stores when everybody else is occupied. For example, go swimming during normal dinner hours. Or eat dinner late when everyone else is at a show, etc. Unfortunately we weren't thrilled with the quality of the food. The dining room experience use to be something special: tablecloths, food that was placed like art on plates and amazing flavors. Now there isn't anything fancy about it at all. And the taste is just okay. That goes for dining rooms and buffets. The pizza isn't even that good anymore. Kind of sad. BUT there were plenty of postivie things about this cruise as well.... Matt our cruise director was fabulous. He is funny and incredibly entertaining. The Carnival Hub App is fantastic! It's soooo much easier to find out what's going on around the ship and the ship map on the app saved me many times. Our state room was great. A king bed with two singles for the kids. Small but space for everything. We brought removable hooks and magnets to hang things up on the walls. Paperwork, lanyards, bags of souveneirs, hats and more. It was a huge help! Our steward, Wayan, was so kind and helpful. We liked him a lot! The shows were pretty good too. We aren't talking big city theater or anything but it was entertaining enough. A couple of the singers on board were really good. We played trivia, watched a live game show and more. We also really appreciated the information Carnival provided at each port about trusted stores, vendors and excursions. Made us feel really secure that we weren't going to get ripped off. And we didn't. Yay! So all in all, a fantastic time was had by all. Our kids loved the pools, waterslides, ropes course and Sky Ride. At one point they were both a bit overwhlemed by all the activity on board. Oh and I should mention that both embarkation and disembarkation were super simple. Very easy to follow the directions. Disembarkation took only a few minutes. Very smooth! Thanks Carnival for a memorable 20th wedding anniversary! Read Less

I would say this is my least favorite ship that I have been on with Carnival. We took our boys on the 8 days Southern cruise because we really enjoy the ports on this trip. The ports were absolutely amazing. Grand Turk is changing so much we probably will make that a boat day whenever we visit there again. The Vista itself however was so disappointing. There just were not enough crew members for the amount of guests that were on the ship. There were so many things that were broken and you couldn't use them. They didn't have parts to fix things. The Red Frog Pub didn't have darts for the dart board. The bartender at the Red Frog Pub towards closing time (11:30 I believe) seemed to be a little put out that we wanted darts (even though the pub stays open, just not the bar). There was a lot to do on the Vista I will give it that. But they made all the areas so small in order to fit everything in. This is the first Carnival Ship I have been on that there were hardly any bar waiters on the decks. You had to go to one of the bars any time you wanted a drink. I saw maybe 3 deck waiters in 8 days and that was during the parties on deck. Most of the time only 1 buffet line was open so the lines got crazy if you wanted the buffet. The BBQ was absolutely amazing, wish they would have been opened more. My husband enjoyed the Sushi and all except 1 night our experience in the dining room was great! There was a lot of teenagers on the ship who were mainly destroying things and arguing and basically just trying to start arguments with people as they walked by. I believe had there more crew members walking around that may have cut down on that. Read Less
