Rotterdam

October 2017 - Rotterdam to Canada, New England, New York

Pleasant Journey

Overall it was pretty good but not exciting. Unusually warm weather cause less than peak foliage. We enjoyed ourselves as we went with a group. If we had gone alone we would have been bored.

Carnival Vista

June 2016 - Carnival Vista to Europe - Mediterranean

New Ship-Highs and Lows

The best part of the cruise was the port intensive itinerary which allowed us to visit 5 different countries. Entering and leaving the ship was efficient and quick. The cabins were spacious and very pleasant. The food was surprisingly good for this size and type of ship. Our main dining room head waiter was superb. Evening movies on deck were great. Comedy shows were good but too crowded.

Noise at night made sleeping difficult some nights. Initially our party was not seated together and it took aggressive effort to fix this but it was fixed. There were insufficient pools for the very hot weather. A long line for the skyride lessened the enjoyment of this feature. The serenity deck was too small and only had a hot tub. Drinks were small and expensive. The card dispensing beer tap was a good and fast option. Lines were too long in the Lido deck to get breakfast quickly before going to port. The dining room was a better option but it took time and there was not change in the daily menu. Excursions offered by Carnival had too many people per bus and were too expensive. Local private options were more comfortable and much cheaper. Missed the bagels/cream cheese and lox room service breakfast option (a lot). Missed the table cloths in the dining room and the midnight buffet. The customer service desk was pretty much useless and crowded.

donnawinder's Tips

Rotterdam Rotterdam - The passengers are generally old and sedate. This is a cruise line for more geriatric cruises.
Bar Harbor, Maine - Poor weather caused cancellation of our bi-plane trip and we were very disappointed.
Montreal, Quebec - Stayed for 3 days to enjoy this wonderful city. Did all touring on our own.
Halifax, Nova Scotia - Interesting port with the history of titantic rescues and burials as well as the big explosion. We took a private tour which was good but too long.
Carnival Vista Carnival Vista - This was quite different from the Carnival Caribbean cruises but some cruisers thought that it was still party city. We could have been happy without the loud heavy drinkers.
