We booked our vacation and chose to sail aboard Carnival Vista on a 10 day European cruise. We chose this ship because it was Carnival's newest ship and we got a very reasonable deal on this sailing. This cruise also offered the ports that we were wanting to visit. This cruise left from Athens, Greece and sailed for 10 nights to Barcelona, Spain. We arrived in Athens 2 days ahead of sailing and we stayed on in Spain for another week before heading home. We booked our cabin on the Lido Deck 10 in a balcony room. I booked the Lido deck for the close proximity to the pool deck and this is also the deck where the buffets and drinks are most easily reached. The ship had great entertainment, the food was really good, at the buffets as well as in the dining room. We did not visit the specialty restaurants because I feel like I have already paid for my food, so why should I spend additional money while aboard.The pools were abundant, although the temperature of the pools and slides was way too cold for this girl! Thank goodness for the hot tubs! We enjoyed miniature golf, ping pong, the arcade, the sky courts, ropes course and the sky bikes. Our sailing only had 1 day at sea, so it was extremely port heavy... that being said we did not have a lot of time to spend on the ship.

Cabin Review

The cabin was very nice, nothing out of the ordinary for a balcony room.
