April 2017 - Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Eastern
The only things that I can say that we were impressed with was our cabin staff, our wait staff and the bartender, Gabriel, at the Alchemy Bar on the ship. The ship was way understaff for the size of the ship - there was not enough staff to go around to clean up on the open decks to pick up the bar glasses to keep the teenagers from stealing them. Security had to be beefed up to try to keep the teenagers under control the whole week - the were raising havoc through out the decks banging on doors waking people up, stealing signs, running up and down stairs while knocking people over and running through the ship through the night (I can vouch for the fact that a group of 12 was up at 4 AM running around) - where is the curfew that use to be in place years ago. The show lounge was small and didn't have that great of view in lots of areas. My husband and I will stick with the small ships from now on and will try to plan our cruises better around when the schools in Florida is not on break at the same time.
