New but lacking
Carnival Vista Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Vista is huge and gorgeous but they definately cut corners to squeeze in as many people as possible. We stayed for a 6 day to jamaica, grand cayman & cozumel. The spa is a huge dissapointment. Same with the spa level and serentity. The waterslides line with tons of kids and noise is on the same level just steps away from the relaxing serenity area making for a noisy less relaxful area. There were 20 min waits in lines for breakfast on dembarkment days. Room 12202 is wedged between 2 housekeeping closets and is VERY noisy all night long. It also required moving the bed in order to access the balcony...very awkward. Housekeeping comes in 2-3xa day and each time they moved the bed again so that we couldnt access the balcony and required us moving it back. We ended up just putting out the do not disturb door hanger for the last 3 days. There is NEVER an open loumge chair. Ever! Glad i had a balcony. Went out early to save a seat on day 4 since i hadnt been able to score a chair before then, and went back to get my daughter ready and came back to everything gone. There is a 15minute rule and the staff removes your items and places them at the towel station. Uggh.. never got a chance to lay out and soak up the sun anywhere but my balcony. We had in room
television issues and was delivered melted chocolate covered strawberries. Just irritating nuisances but didnt reck our trip as its still a vacation! Blue iguana has the best food!

There is a TON of people packed on this ship. Prepare for lines for everything. Give Extra 20 min for breakfast of dembarkment days. Vista is not worth purchasing a spa level deck. Spa is lacking on this ship.
