This was an amazing cruise. We visited six countries. The ship has so much to do that you could spend a week on it do everything. The kids on our trip were constantly entertained, and the adults had fun or relaxed. With this cruise, we only had one day at sea, and we all wished we'd had one more day at sea, even if that meant making it an 11-night cruise. We just wanted one more day toward the end to relax. The staterooms were amazing -- such a big difference from my last cruise 16 years ago.Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
AMAZING. Just the right amount of room. We loved the bathroom because it had two sinks and a bathtub with shower.

PLEASE NOTE: Our room number was 7326 in an ocean side suite room with a very nice private balcony. We upgraded from our original cabin, which was supposed to be on the 11th deck.

My sister-in-law's purse was stolen here. Apparently, it's common in Barcelona so watch your purses and leave your passports in your hotel safe.


This ship has all the technology I'd want in a ship. The Hub App made it easy to get around the ship (the maps) and for the most part the chat app works. However, we had a lot of messages that did not get sent or received. That led to some confusion. Other than that, there's so much to do on Vista!
