We had a great time, but the kids were upset the bikes and slides were closed most of the time. The pools are too small. Also there are really only like 3 pools. We could not get into the Havana Bar AT ALL. there are only hot tubs in the adult area. No pools. Food was closed at random times and you could not get it. It may be a while before I cruise again. All inclusive sounds way better!

Excellent cruise I would do it again!!!! The vista cruise was awesome beautiful ship. The cable car was a plus love the activities. I would recommend a way of shortening the lido line for breakfast a bit lengthy. Bowling was a plus as well as foot pool.

Great cruise went on with a group of family members. There was an abundance of activities for everyone. The food was amazing and a lot of choices and speciality restaurants. Overall a great choice, looking forward to booking another Carnival cruise.

Don't know when I will take another cruise but when I do it definitely won't be on Carnival Vista. When you are on a cruise you shouldn't have to worry about rushing to get something to eat when you come from an excursion.

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.

Drinks are expensive. If possible, leave a few breaks from excursions in your plans. Our first 4 days were long excursions and by the 5th day, we really needed a sit on your rear end type break.
