June 2017 - Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Western
Paid a little extra so we could have access to the Harbour Lounge however, it was a disaster from day one. The lounge had hot chocolate and coffee and water and ice and ice cream machine. I thought it would have a drink machine with the ice tea and lemonade but it did not. That was a disappointment. They had a breakfast and light lunch which was very nice you didn't have to fight the Lido deck on port days. But the room was quickly taken over by kids and they destroyed the room daily. Games and cards all over the floor where you could not walk and ice cream machine left running where ice cream was everywhere. When I called the front desk and explained how the kids were destroying it and explained that there were stewards in the hall way but not saying a word the lady at the front desk said they could not say anything to the the kids the parents would have to do that. She would send someone to check out the room. I get that Carnival does not want to put a negative vibe out however it was a negative vibe for me and my family who paid extra to have this amenity that we could not enjoy. The young man working (Lee) was working his butt off trying to clean up as fast as the kids were messing up. The cruise it self was great. Bed and pillow were so comfortable stewards were excellent. The dance and singing shows in the evening were a lot to be desired however the comedy shows were excellent.
