Carnival Vista

September 2016 - Carnival Vista to Europe

Something missing

"The Carnival Vista is the largest and best ship that Carnival has."  I don't question that it is the Largest ship, but do question that it is the best.  This new ship is far from elegant.  Many of Carnivals' older ships are more attractive and appealing.  Case in point is the Liquid Lounge, theater, the seating is terrible.  In most areas, it is not theater, staged seating so viability is difficult.  High back seats are intermixed with low back seats. Why?  The dancers did their best, but I wasn't the best I've seen on other cruises.  Food in the formal dining area has never been Carnivals' strong point, but I found less than your norm.

The good side, and there are many.  Everyone on the ship was very friendly and did anything they could to make our cruise enjoyable.  Our server, Frank, was extremely competent and made dinner enjoyable.  Jamie, the Cruise Director, did a fabulous job, really high energy.  Our Cabin Stuarts kept our cabin in fine order.

Would I recommend sailing on the Vista?  The answer is yes, but don't expect everything you've had other cruises.

deanrap's Tips

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Too much to see in too little time. We were glad that we had spend a few days in Rome on a previous trip.
Barcelona, Spain - This was where our cruise concluded. Barcelona is a beautiful city and we took an additional three days to tour it.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Piraeus is a port city. Travelers have to take the time and visit Athens and its historical sites.
