I don't know if we'd ever try carnival again. No apologies for anything at all. I feel they owed us some recompense for the lack of the port but we haven't heard a word. We had bad experiences with carnivals paper thin walls and people out of control from too much party. In a previous sailing We also witnessed a death on board below our balcony in a hot tub. It was terrible, they keep trying to resuscitate the man to no avail. Nothing said to us about that either. We were hurried off that ship at disembarkation. It ruined our whole experiance of that cruise. But with a new ship and long time between sailings we thought we'd try again. The only thing I can say, you are now educated as to sailing this ship.

I would love to sail on this ship again. Not hurricane season. I would choose different ports. I would also suggest cleaning rooms twice a day. Bringing only carry ones and backpack was wonderful on and off ship.

Not Impressed with Carnival Vista! I rather try other ships beside this one! Would love to see what the Breeze has to offer! But anyway the cruise director is who made the Vista! He was a blast!

Don't rush to dinner on the first night m- there will be a line. Go about 5-10 minutes late. Other nights were fine. Do not miss dining in the formal dining rooms at night as the food and service is top notch. We did self debarkation but had to wait for an elevator for about 20 minutes.

Be prepared that it is a very large ship. There are small bars that people don't seem to use like the Havana Bar. It has comfortable seating ,great bartenders,and a good place if you want a quiet drink. Later it has good music too.

First time we have chosen any time dining. It was a correct choice because of all the excursions.
