Nice Winter Getaway

|

We drove to the Port as we are from the Midwest. We parked at Lighthouse parking and have the last few times we have sailed from Galveston. It is much smaller, but I've never had to wait a long time for a shuttle. ...

We Have Done This One Before

We were going to travel with old friends but they had to cancel at the last minute so traveling on this itinerary was no big deal, we have done it before several times. We always like meeting new people and finding ...

We were on Liberty of the Seas January 12-19, 2020. We had only been on one cruise before, last May, on the Harmony. We had originally reserved an inside promenade view room but won the royal up bid to get a ...

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 ...

A beautiful ship with great service with a few minor glitches

This is only my second cruise, the first was over twenty years ago, and my wife's first. We chose a cruise because of the relatively low cost and the ports of call which included some of our favorite places; ...

Amazing cruise for our second cruise

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 ...

November 4th 2019 Galveston to West Caribbean

This was our 16th cruise. Obviously we love the experience. Yet this one didn't work too well for us. The ship is clean, well appointed, our balcony room was surprisingly large, and the ship offered great ...

Vista --- pretty ship, that's about it

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 ...

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. ...

The food was great, and the service was amazing. We purchased a dining package, but this is a very small ship, so there is only 1 specialty dining option, Chops Grille. The food at Chops was very good, but there ...
