May 2017 - Carnival Vista to Caribbean - Southern
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.
