Carnival Vista

May 2017 - Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Southern

My experience

I have been on many cruises with Carnival, Norwegian & Royal. This was a new ship so my expectations were a little high. For starters, the elevators need to be worked on. Too much congestion was a nuisance. The two restaurants that were available for 2 hours only was not good. The Mongolian & pasta they need to extend the hours on that.  I found that this ship had too many lines for just about everything. The hub app was a plus I did like that & how the photos are set up to purchase was a plus also. The phones to call a room were not working when I tried them. Comparing this ship to other carnival ships this ship needs to be worked on. Not sure if its who is managing this ship needs more training but I know that this fleet has been around too long for what I experience on the vista. When leaving to an island if you missed out on the announcement there was no one else to inform you & or a sign to go by, &  I am a cruiser so I  sort of knew were to go to disembark but what happens to the first time cruisers. I was a little disappointed I felt for a new ship it should have been a lot better. The pizza spot always had a huge line, the burger joint just as well. Everything was a line. I have to say the cruise director Matt was amazing. I also want to commend Isaias from the blue Iguana for always greeting me with a smile as they should he was amazing with his drinks & a pleasure to go to. My room steward Adi was also great. Very attentive to any thing I may have needed. He was fantastic. I also want to commend Joseph from the Havana bar for always staying on top of cleaning men that guy works. I told him to take a break. Great guy. I was disappointed we didn't make curacao so that just damper my spirits even more & I was ready to go back home right after.

Carnival Breeze

June 2013 - Carnival Breeze to Caribbean

Not what i expected

This was my 5th carnival cruise but this ship for being a newer ship i was not pleased at all. Staff were not that friendly i felt lack of professionalism my room steward was about the only good thing i had i wont be returning on the breeze nor will i recommend it. I figured with all the bad media carnival had gotten that this ship would have been a five star ship and it was far from it very dissappointed i have travel royal twice and was very pleased overall. Not sure if i will give carnival a try again.

ValerieHerrera's Tips

La Romana, Dominican Republic - Next time I will book an excursion. Decided to walk the port which was not much & paid to go downtown that was a NIGHTMARE. I paid $10.00 roundtrip & I was there 10 minutes if that & came back to ship. Carnival has this as an excursion for $40. I think you guys need to remove this excursion. It only aggravated me as the locals harass the tourist not fun at all.
Carnival Vista Carnival Vista - Go 15 minutes before any of the restaurants are going to open ex: Guys burger, burrito spot, Mongolian & pasta to avoid getting in a long line.
Carnival Breeze Carnival Breeze - They need to improve. Guest services i went to because they gave my husband the wrong card the staff had horrible english and we never recieved an update if not when he went to debark the ship for an island he buzzed to which we found out he had a new card but no one ever called us.
