Europe from Athens - Athens to Barcelona
Sail Date: July 19, 2016
Ship: Carnival Vista
Cabin Number: 7259
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Vista is a new ship with lots of deck space since they sacrificed pool areas. The Havana area has its own pool zone but the suites have no distinct areas for them. There are several good specialty restaurants but the anytime dining is a disaster since everyone wants to eat late. Gym area is ok, sometimes a little warm and it could have used some more room for weight area. If you play basketball you are out of luck until 11pm since someone designed this ship with the specialty restaurants right under the court. Cabins are nice but they have poorly positioned night lights that are too bright. Overall a pretty good cruise.

It was a suite but there was smaller than typical hanging clothes area of closet and there is a night light outside the bathroom that is LED and bright at night for the room and needs to be covered.

Ship Tip

The daily newsletter is weak on information so need to read it carefully. There is little information about ports visited probably so you would buy the excursions. There were barbecues on the day at sea only which we found by luck.
