EXCEEDED Most Expectations

My husband and I had a GREAT time on Carnival Vista. We set sail the first week in January, after New Years. I had heard quite a few things about Carnival being dirty or being the ships that get people sick; I'll ...

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 ...

Great Staff in general, but Dreams Studio was disappointment

We had a cabin on deck 8 and it was a balcony. We went to Costa Maya, Roatan, and Cozumel. Embarkation was fast and easy. Arvin was the best steward ever. He helped us with water, extra pillows, mattress pad, and ...

Much better than the last time!

This was my 44th Carnival cruise and 68th cruise overall, so I do have lots to compare it to! With all the propulsion problems going on, we expected Carnival to greatly reduce prices to sell out the June 29 ...

The shows were definitely a highlight of the ship.

This was our third Carnival Cruise in the past 5 years, all of which left from Galveston. This was our first cruise more than 5 nights. We chose this cruise because it fit a very specific time table in June of 2019. ...

Skip The Chef's Table unless you love gourmet food

We tried the Chef's Table (at $75.00 per person plus 18% gratuity) and found that it was nice to be part of a small group of 14 guests, but there were too many courses and too much food for the 3 hour ordeal. Yes, ...
