Carnival ships at capacity?

I asked this question awhile back, but no one knew the answer. So, here goes: Of those who have been on a cruise this year, was your ship at capacity? If not, about what percentage? And, are the cruise lines divulging this information? We are booked on the Carnival Vista out of Galveston on October 9th. I know it really makes no difference how full the ship is, but we are just wondering. Any information would be appreciated.

OUTSTANDING kids!!! mix in the "new and improved" (HAH!) covid testing requirements, and I'll bet it'll be even less going for me, but how long can they keep sailing this way"

On Breeze august 30. Crew member said 1900 on the ship about half full. No kid activities at all, no lines at all, walk right in for breakfast, weird feeling being on a cruise ship with no crowds. Even getting off was weird, 20 minutes to get off. Fast.

Just got off the Magic. Max passenger capacity is 4700 and we had 2300-2400 passengers.
