Always appreciate a brand new ship from Carnival!

Sail Date: September 13, 2016

Reviewed: 2 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a pleasant surprised when we discovered that we had two separate baths in our stateroom, one 3 piece and the other 2!! Bathrobes were also a nice addition as part of the standard offerings in the stateroom!

We know the Vista is a bigger vessel than the last new ship, Breeze that we were on a few years ago but somehow the Vista layout does not flow like all the other vessels we were on. There are more specialty areas and amenity but they seem a bit segmented.

The sky ride was fun and thrilling and a wonderful water park for the kids and young at hearts!

The main dining room however lacks luster and wow effects...not like all the other Carnival main dining rooms. The low ceilings in some area actually felt tight and uncomfortable. There is not white table clothe anymore except one feast night, and wait staff no longer sit the diners and placing the napkins on their laps.

We did not see wait staff do their nightly dance or routine anymore except for the very last evening!

All in all we had fun, regardless of what were said above. The entertainments were great, Playlist performed wonderfully well in all the productions, and Jamie the Cruise Director worked tirelessly to keep the energy going day in and day out! Main dining room served delicious food every evening and we love the afternoon pasta served at the Italian restaurant for sure, not to even mention the wonderfully tempting burgers and pizzas!  

As I said we had fun on this fun ship and made friends along the way!! Happy
