Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Premium Balcony

We went on Vista because we live in Texas and it's out of Galveston. The staff is AMAZING!!!!

Food in dining room and Guy's burgers were GREAT! Buffett was hit and miss! Didn't try any of the other $$ restaurants.

Matt the cruise director.................OMG! Would travel with Carnival again just to see him.

service was FABULOUS everywhere on the ship.

I was disappointed that in order to use any of the spa features, including hot tub whirlpool and sauna, you had to purchase an additional "Thermal" package.

The hot tubs on decks were always filled with kids....not really a deal breaker because we knew what we were getting into going on a Thanksgiving cruise.

Entertainment was awesome! Ship is so amazing.

Our Teens did the Skyride and had a blast. We all enjoyed the mega TV at night for movies and definitely purchase the cheers package for the drinkers....well worth it.

Carnival HUB app allows you to communicate with your family(fellow travelers) on your phone without having to purchase the internet package. Cost is $5 per phone.

Cabin Review

Premium Balcony

awesome. close to stairs to go directly to Lido for coffee in the morning. Not so close to Laundry facilities, but still not bad. we had two cabins and opened the balcony divider between them so had instant access.
