  3. Carnival Vista
We were excited to try the Vista, but at the same time were a little worried about sailing over Easter Break. Overall we really enjoyed the ship. One of the nice things is the layout of the ship and number of choices you have for fun, food, & relaxation; which all contributed to the ship never feeling crowded. Embarkation and debarkation was a breeze. I thought the crew were very friendly and professional. Our Head Server in the MDR, SANJA, was outstanding, but her assistants were not. Found the food in the MDR to be pretty lousy, but there are so many other choices, we didn't really care. i think in the future we will probably only go to the MDR a couple of times, until they put the time into a better menu with better quality choices. There were a ton of things to do and we thought the entire cruise was great. Obviously we didn't care for the MDR food, but that's such a small aspect of the entire cruise. The SPA, Fitness facility, pools, water slide, etc. were all clean & fun! We actually booked the Vista again for next year.
