We wanted to sail on a brand new ship and Carnival Vista had the best available itineraries that suited us. We loved the atmosphere on the ship and it was more luxurious that we had expected, having never sailed with Carnival before.
Our cabin was spacious and modern, lots of light and it was nice to be able to sit on the seating area inside the cabin and out on our balcony. The bathroom wasn’t the best I have seen on a newer ship, but it was fine.
On a longer sailing I’m sure we would have definitely tried the skyride, our friends did and they said it was great. We loved the adult only retreat area at the back of the ship, lots of room in the hot tubs and comfortable hammocks and beds to relax. We expected to have to get up first thing to try and get a spot here but wandered up after lunch on the sea day and found a few beds free.
