Carnival Vista

Europe from Athens - Athens to Barcelona

Sail date: June 21, 2016

Ship: Carnival Vista

Cabin number: 12221

Traveled as: Couple

Review summary

The Vista was beautiful. We had a lovely time. You would never know there were 4000 passengers on board, it was never crowded.  The staff was friendly and nice.  Overall it was not as nice as other cruises we have been on. We think this is more a trend in the industry and not a reflection on the ship.  We notice each time that we cruise that they are less elegant.  The food quality has declined and even the upcharge Italian restaurant was not impressive (would not recommend it.

Great location!!

Ship tip

Don't leave the sky ride to the last day. The line was too long and we missed out on doing it. (It is only open a limited amount of time). Don't over pack.

We loved Turkey! It was very safe. Don't be afraid to get off the ship because it is Turkey.

We stayed in Naples and walked around. I would probably do an excursion at this port if I went back. the city is a dirty city. It was nice but there are better places to go.

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

Rome is a far trip and a crowded city. Amazing sights to see but be prepared-it is a long day.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
