August 2016 - 12 Night Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Vista
First of all let me say I am a retired educator and still love being around children, however on this ship there were 1200 children. Many of them were running everywhere at every opportunity, sitting on bar stools, in casinos and at inappropriate shows for their age. They took over the tiny pools on the ship and pressed every single elevator button when no one was looking. On the third day of this we went to security to report our observations. We were told that the discipline was up to the parents and that the crew/staff couldn't do anything. The security officer thanked us for our comments and our meeting concluded. I will NEVER take a Carnival cruise again in my life, nor will I recommend it to anyone. The attitude of security and the behavior of the children was totally unacceptable for paying passengers.
