Great last minute anniversary cruise

Wonderful Last minute Anniversary Cruise. We decided fairly last minute (for us) to take a cruise for our anniversary, right at 60 days. I started looking and Carnival had an inexpensive cruise on the Vista out of Miami going to Grand Turk. We had never been on Carnival nor had we been to Grand Turk. We had heard that the scuba in Grand Turk was amazing. We had also heard Carnival called the ...

Now we know why Carnival was described as the "Walmart" of all cruise lines. If you like throwing yourself into crowds of loud, obnoxious, unpolished people; then this cruiseline is for you! With almost thirty different places for food and beverage service, only a handful are worth acknowledging. Tacky entertainment to the point of embarrassment, and mediocre at best food and shopping, this ...

Chose the cruise because of the Havana Cabana. It was truly awesome. We actually got to use the pool and jacuzzis. They have always been too crowded with kids on other cruises. The staff in the Havana Cabana was great. They quickly learned everyone’s name and took care of our every need. Food at the BBQ restaurant was very tasty and convenient. The steakhouse and Italian restaurant were both ...

Too big of a ship and not enough crew.

Boarding the boat with priority boarding didn't happen. Mass amounts of people and rooms not ready. Didn't have enough seating at lunch in the market place after every one boarded. For being a new boat. the lack of air conditioning [or keeping the hot air out] in the Market Place was very uncomfortable eating conditions. Our cabin not being ready when promised, and the when we gain access 1 ...

The ship was horrible design

I am Platinum cruisers and this ship was horrible. The cabin was smaller with less closets and more people on ship for same events and smaller seating space. No real dance club they have to change comedy club into dance club so if late shows oh well no dance club. I did like the theater but not worth losing all the other luxuries for that . Never again....they only added more cabins and no more ...

Overall, I could not have asked for a better cruise! We chose the Vista because we wanted a newer ship with lots of on board activities. It wasn't perfect, but really was wonderful. We arrived in Miami the day prior to the cruise and stuck pretty close to the hotel. Our adult daughter and her fiance joined us on this cruise, but their cabin was on a different floor. We had a balcony ...

Our Honeymoon cruise was amazing!

We chose this cruise because its sailing was the day after our wedding and I had always wanted to go abroad the Vista. We flew into Miami so we checked in at the airport. This lead to confusion once we finally got on the airport transfer to the port. We went through security and Carnival employees were handing out boards stating your boarding zone. We were never given one since we had checked ...

We stayed on carnival vista , deck 9 , balcony room. With this being a new ship our expectations were high but as we got ok the ship down the hallway and to the room we were not impressed. We have been on carnival victory years ago and the vista seemed might smaller. The hallways tighter... lower ceiling and cheap looking design. The hallway was hot as if the air was not working properly... we ...

First I know reviews are opinionated by nature but I think they can be more about the experience then some really are. We traveled last week in August into September. We flew into Miami morning of cruise from NJ and had no issues. Uber to port for 19 bucks no issues. Embarkation - this was a problem only cause a bad storm came by. Being outside in lightning - not fun - being inside minutes ...

This is my 28 cruise. Seven of them had been with Carnival and had excellent experience with them but with this one the only good thing about it was the intinerary (Turk & Caicos, La Romana, Curacao & Aruba). My review is according to my experience. Embarkation was long and very disorganized. The Market buffet was rediculous long lines all the time to get something to eat (breakfast and lunch) and ...
