  3. Carnival Vista
Been on a few Carnival ships. Nothing fancy about the ship itself, not luxurious, but hits the nail on the head where it counts. Great food, entertainment, multiple musicians throughout the ship, and at sea brewery was kinda cool. People sometimes write off Carnival as a cheaper ship but I think they are more fun than most others. Pros: Good food. Buffet and dinners are typical but the new Burger Bar and BBQ Joint were pretty good. Carnival also does a lobster night which none of the other cruises I know of do. Entertainment was great. Not only was music good but it was also all over the ship. Seems like everywhere you went they had some type of live music playing which was great. Fun. Always something going on with Carnival. They also have stand up comedy on top of their usual nightly shows. Cons: Pool is always crowded. Seems to be on all Carnival Ships. Poker table was hidden inside a bar so never got to play poker because no one new it was there.

Great entertainment. Great food.
