Verified Review
8 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 23, 2016
Ship: Carnival Vista
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6263
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 1 year ago

I loved the ship but did not enjoy the industrial ports. I booked a balcony room to enjoy the arrival into each but was disappoint by each view. There were a couple of exceptions. I did love the fact that the ship was large enough to accommodate the number of people aboard and I didn't feel as though we were on top of each other,

Food and Dining

The food is slipping from my last cruise in April and the desert menu was disappointing at best.

Don't pay for the Carnival Shuttle at $17.00 per person there is a free shuttle at the end of the street. It is a 3-5 minute walk and saves you money. Industrial port
