Sailing at capacity?

We are sailing on the Vista October 9th/16th. Does anyone know if ships will be sailing at full capacity or reduced capacity? Has there been any sort of announcement? I emailed carnival awhile back, and no specific response. We got the " The situation is fluid" type of reply.

I haven't heard any announcement. I don't think Carnival knows for sure what they will be able to do.

All a wait and see. Til then there is only speculation.

Been asking that exact question for months now...not a question exactly, more like a concern...sort of like waiting for the other shoe to drop. I haven't heard or read about anybody being "bumped" from any cruise line....and I doubt there's any official answer....mix in the fol-de-rol about whether or not they "need" to do so-called "test cruises", or which Governor is having a hissy fit on which day over get the idea...all I can suggest is "hope for the best, plan for the worst"...which means that right now, while its still up in the air, try to decide what you're willing to do if it happens...I used to comment that nobody knew who was driving this bus...well....upon reflection, WE are...either you put up with whatever they put out, or give em the ol one finger salute and adjust your plans accordingly...

When we sailed, there was exactly 2300 aboard. The next sailing, we were told as we were leaving the ship, was 2200. Almost 4000 capacity.

Just curious, who did you (or anybody) ask?

I ask when we boarding as to how many were going to be on the ship. As we were exiting, a crew member ( housekeeping staff member, I assume) was asking how many were boarding that day, and he said 2203. Now, as to the accuracy of those number I as unsure. But our cruise was AWESOME. No waiting in line, got right on the tender at Belize. Empty deck chairs and loungers. Pool only had a few folks in it (never seen it crowded).

Thank you
