NEW SHIP, NEW ADVENTURES

Sail Date: June 03, 2016

Reviewed: 5 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

We booked a Mediterranean cruise to explore new countries, and had a good time visiting Italy and France, and staying in Barcelona before and after the cruise.

 

VIsta is a new ship, and Carnival's biggest.  It didn't 'blow us away' as we thought it might.  We had previously sailed on the Valor, and thought it just as nice, if not nicer.

 

Staff were very friendly and helpful (though trying to find our 'your own dining' the first time was difficult).  A balcony cabin is recommended to enjoy some quiet time, and feel less claustrophobic. 

 

On this cruise, too many things to pay for (restaurants and buses to the port terminals).  This is NOT a relaxing tour, as you'll always want to be going to see things (and they are some distance away) -- not Carnival's fault, just the way this tour happens.

 

Food was good, though Lido buffet seemed to have less choices than the Valor we had sailed on before.

 

Easy boarding and exiting, getting off the ship with so many people was also easy.  The elevators seemed slower than on Valor though.

 

I would not go out of my way to sail again on the Vista.

 

Cabin / Stateroom
A balcony is always nice just have to have that extra space, and enjoy a quiet area together.
