We just got back from our Jan. 2018 Sailing and we did have a great time. It was a rough first couple days because of the weather but the Captain did the best he could. We were the only ship to make it into our first port. I had heard that a few others werent able to get in. This was our 3rd Carnival cruise and I have to say that the food was the best on this sailing. BBQ and Guys Burgers were very good. Even the buffet food has some really good choices at each meal. The room was pretty much the same as any other carnival cruise. The entertainment was good to great. We saw all 4 comedians. 2 were excellent and 1 was good, while the other was not so good. Blanchard was one of the excellent ones and the others name was Marvin something. Our Cruise Director Matt was the best we have had. Excellent all the way around. Lines were not bad other than if you wanted good seats for the comedy shows. One suggestion for people coming on the Vista. There are not enough good seats available around the lido deck to go around, so get up early and reserve your spot. Thrill Theatre was cool and fun. Did not see an Imax but they had some good movies to choose from. Jumanji and Maze Runner. Really my only complaint was the embarkment and really there wasnt much they could do. Only one gangway was working so it took too long to get the previous cruisers off and get us on. The line was long but we are pretty patient so we got there eventually. Thank you Carnival and all the Staff for a wonderful trip. Cant wait for the next one.
