"However, one breakfast we had a very good waiter, who reminded us of the better Carnival service we've enjoyed on other ships.The one time I was able to get a cheese slice, it was really good...."Read More

Galveston - We checked in at the Carnival reception table at the airport, it was at the far end of baggage claim. When we arrived at the port there was a long line for our arrival time, 12-12:30. They moved us through pretty quickly. There were dozens of dolphins in port both at sail away and when we arrived back at 8am on the following Saturday morning. We were originally booked on the ...

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 ...

We cruised on the Vista in 2019 and had an extended aft cabin and loved it. This time we booked a spa cabin on 14 since the afts were booked.. Occupancy was 40-50% and you could feel the difference. There were no lines and getting on and off the ship was a breeze. We made our appointment at CVS and did the one hour antigen test, screen shot it and printed it. We did early dining and always ...

AMAZING cruise…. Ship was clean and cleaned continuously. Food very acceptable… steakhouse so good we ate there twice. Stayed on deck 11 in spa suite… that’s the ONE thing, but first with the positive. The Carnival Vista Rock Band absolutely a must see… we spent lots of time listening and dancing… Amazing group. The Country duo where really great also we split our time and made as many ...

I like the Carnival cruise line and have cruised with them before. Most of the cruises have been just amazing, however, this one was really different. Besides all of the COVID testing etc. that has to be done, the ship was sailing at 50% capacity. There were no lines! Getting on and off were easy, the new way to do the safety briefing was so much better, you go to your muster station and they ...

We joined our friends on this cruise and booked over a year in advance during the pandemic not knowing if we will ever go. It was very relaxing with only approximately 50% capacity. No long lines and not crowded. Quick to get Guy's Burgers or Blue Iguana. The only hassle was getting tested in advance. Testing availability was limited and they changed it to 2-days prior. Since we have to ...

Great overall experience. Kyndall Fire was an awesome cruise director and kept things fun. Fun was Carnival typical. Staff on the ship was friendliest and most welcoming of any cruise I have been on - they went out of their way to engage and say hi, etc. Room was well kept. Servers in main dining room very efficient and attentive. Entertainment was good. Loved Allure of the Seas electric ...

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 ...

From the time we arrived at the port, the excitement stayed with the entire Cruise. I've been on almost every major cruise line and my new hubby had never cruised so this was a real treat to show him why I love to cruise. Embarkation compared to the past was quicker and streamlined and the Port of Galveston Staff are all 5 Star! Our balcony on deck 11 was perfect and Conrad the cabin ...
