Carnival Vista

October 2016 - Carnival Vista to Europe

Good cruise on a good-to-great ship

Plenty of activities on board. Smaller balcony and cabin than ours on the new RCCL Ovation of the seas. No fruit punch just lemonade or tea. Limited food options (our opinion) in the main dining so menu got old about half way thru. crew was very friendly. Vista has bigger TVs but very, very, very limited TV choices. Ovation much better. Vista is not as elegant as the Ovation either. Elevators seemed faster than Ovation but were smaller. Ovation had electrical outlet next to bed and the frig kept drinks colder than the Vista. Even the cabin's tissue box doesn't align with the hole so they wouldn't dispense properly. Very odd you can't get from the aft to the middle of the ship on deck 3 and they don't have the usual numbers of public restrooms on the ship. For example, no restroom close by the main dining room. The morning show lacks good info about the ports and they don't give you a map of the port towns like we received on most cruises.

Still, we had a good time, the ship is clean and beautiful (although it has almost no public art) and has lots of activities. The crew is enthusiastic and we might of had the best servers of our 14 cruises.

Carnival Legend

July 2013 - Carnival Legend to Europe - Northern Europe

a very good experience

The ship's condidtion was excellent. Main dining room waiter was poor. Room was excellent, clean and comfortable. the cabin attendent was exceptional. overall food was very good. A wider selection of food choices for main dining than some of the other lines I've been on (NCL and Princess). entertainment was average to above average. a lot of activities on board without it being overwhelmingly crowded. Pools were fine. Adult relaxation area was fine and they don't chare extra like Princess does. Soda was from a can so it didn't have the "bar" after taste like RCCL has. the itenerary was excellent but the cost of the organized excursions were VERY steep in several ports.

bradb22's Tips

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - we only went to the port town and the beach. west beach has the best sand by the "teapot" the rest of the sand has smaller sized stones.
Tallinn, Estonia - kids had a great time at the castle (expensive) and we had a great time at old town and outdoor museum
Carnival Legend Carnival Legend - it was nice to have a card room and it has a pool table too. the crafts were a nice relaxing way to spend some quiet time.
