Dream Trip in the Mediterranean

I have been on a lot of cruises - but this trip on the new Carnival Vista was spectacular! Both the ship and the itinerary were great - as our first time in Europe it gave us a taste of Spain, France, Italy, Turkey and Greece. We did shore excursions at each port of call - which was nearly everyday. That was probably the only down-side, we only had one day at sea to really enjoy the ship and catch our breath.

I would absolutely recommend this ship to anyone considering a Mediterranean cruise - I have watched prices and itineraries for 20 years, and this was the absolute best value with the most places to truly was a dream come true!

Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice - great balcony and great location, very easy to get where you want. Only bad this is that it is near the pool that has a lot of night time activity and noise because of the outside theater (that's right movies and popcorn every night - if you want) so if you want quite in the evenings pick a room further down the hall way
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
This by far was the coolest ship that I have ever been on and I haven't been on many Accross 5 different lines. The way the areas on the ship is payed out and what carnival did with all that they put in this ship should win an award for design and creativeness !
Destinations and Excursions
I would recommend see them all from a ship planned excursion - I know it seems expensive, but if you have never been there before it takes all the apprehension away - and just allows you to enjoy!
Onboard Activities
Unbelievable choices of things to do - we did them all....
Children's Programs Unused
Some of the groups playing music could have been better - but the overall vibe was great.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Very good high quality food and choices in all dining areas! And I'm a foodie...


This was only its second maiden voyage - and because their ships are built in Italy, it was cruising the Mediterranean - which only happens when they have a new ship launched.....I would highly recommend the ship in any waters - but if you have an opportunity to do the Mediterranean - DOIT!!
