Repositioning cruise on the Vista was the best!!

We choose this cruise because it was on the new Vista, because it was a Journeys cruise of 11 days, and because we would be sailing out of the beautiful NY harbor at night. Our only 2 disappointments were: many fewer (6) hot tubs on this ship, although there were 2 thousand extra people, and they don't have the YTD down yet and we had very slow dinners each night. This being said, this was ...

I love Carnival, they are truly the Fun Ships! The Vista was absolutely beautiful. I loved everything about this cruise I am so thankful to have been a part of this re-positioning cruise and to have John Heald travel with us. Matt our cruise director and his crew were outstanding. The shows were magnificent. As a Cuban-American I was very happy with all the Cuban touches all around from a show to ...

The ports of call were the reason I chose this cruise. Embarkation was a nightmare. Disembarkation was very smooth. The cabins are typical carnival, nice storage space. I had a cove balcony, loved it. Cabin 2364. I heard very little noise from Galley which is above.The crew on this cruise was amazing, always smiling and trying to help you. There is a slight communication problem with language, ...

We had a wonderful vacation on the 11 Journey cruise from NYC to Miami over Thanksgiving. It was just myself (43 year old mom) and three sons (15, 13 and 10 yr). This was our third Carnival family vacation, but I have sailed on a dozen cruises on multiple lines. We had an Ocean Suite and it worked for us. The room had plenty of storage and was well arranged to make the most of the space. ...

This was going to be our introduction to the New Carnival Vista, but after getting a great deal on the TA, this was our second trip. The embarkation was a mess in NYC. What I heard later was that 250 Travel agents were given the ROYAL treatment, before the die-hard Platinum & Diamond members were allowed on...Poor planning and poorer organized then even the mess in Barcelona (A story for another ...

Carnival Vista Review I was on the repositioning cruise on the Carnival Vista from 11/16 to 11/27 I know many are curious about the ship so I wanted to put out a detailed review that I would have liked to have known about before I sailed. I hope this information is helpful! Good stuff: 1. The ship is beautiful the color scheme is one of the nicest I have been on. 2. Family harbor ...

We were definitely excited about being on the new Carnival Vista since we are Diamond Carnival cruisers. We booked a back to back cruise so were on the ship for 17 days.However, we were very disappointed in the way the ship had been designed. It seemed that because it was a larger ship they tried to fit in so many new venues and cut back on other things that are the regular Carnival design. The ...

Our family of five sailed on Carnival Vista on the repositioning cruise from New York to Miami 11/16. We were myself (46), DH 49, DD 14, DS 11, and my MIL (75+). This was our third Carnival cruise as a family together, but DH and I had each cruised Carnival and other lines as well previously. After polling all members of the family, we can say that this was without a doubt our favorite cruise ...

This was my 29th Carnival cruise. If I was blindfolded and placed on the ship, I would not have been able to recognize it as a Carnival ship by the interior decor, which was pleasing and tasteful. But when I saw the plastic trees on Lido, I could guess Carnival correctly. I liked the dual atria, with its conical, changing vortex of color. The older Carnival atrium are much taller or higher than ...
