  3. Carnival Vista
We selected the Vista because we wanted to try a newer ship. There was so much to do, to little time to do it all. We tried Fahrenheit 555, it was fabulous! The MDR was the usual Carnival experience. We didn’t have time to do or see all that was offered on the ship. I watched a short documentary at the IMAX. I was disappointed they didn’t have real popped popcorn. They did however have it for the Dive in movie on the Lido. His was the first time we didn’t see a comedy show. I loved the Skyride! I slipped and fell in the Lido Market Place, the carpet that leads into the market place by Guys Burgers was soaked. I have a badly bruised tailbone so I wasn’t able to do all that I had wanted to. In all, the ship was beautiful, it has issues with the flow and elevators took forever. We took the stairs a lot, until I fell. Embarkation was easy, debarkation was confusing to say the least. Public restrooms were clean and staff were always cleaning and wiping down public areas.

    Bruce was absolutely fantastic at providing local history on our bus trip to the river. Kent was our cave guide, he was also amazing and knowledgeable.
