Cabin: Porthole

. Brand new big ship Carnival Vista, first sailing. Nice itinerary, some countries we didn't visit before. Fair price.

Vista disembarked from Trieste. Some challenge to get from Venice airport to Trieste.There is trains and buses but not from airport and schedule is limited. Best way we fount was private taxi,which met two of us in airport (after great communication on internet) We got there in 1 h for 180 Euro.Cruise transfer by bus was much more (sorry, don't remember exact rate).

We been disappointed with the ship's appearance and very poor interior design for new modern ship, worse of 10+ ships we been on. Absolutely ridiculous main theater, too small for such a big ship and not the best architectural decision (half of people couldn't see.anything). Food was decent at main restaurant and Windmare Cafe. Entertainment was very average (2 big production shows was good), no any live music and activities on a deck. Not consistent live music quality all over theship, some was good, some not even average). Weather was cold for May in South Europe with some rains which didn't help to enjoy cruise..
