FANTASTIC family vacation!
Carnival Vista Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
We found the Vista to have so many offerings - dining, entertainment, etc. - that we couldn't do it all on a 6-night cruise! Despite mediocre weather all week, we had NO PROBLEM finding plenty to enjoy onboard and onshore. We love the new boat and found the Family Harbor to meet our needs perfectly (traveling w/ a 6yr old). The free Night Owls admission, free kids' specialty dining and the Family Harbor Lounge are wonderful perks that more than make up for being on deck 2 (which actually was extremely convenient after all!) We took advantage of several specialty dining venues (Seafood Shack, Fahrenheit 555 and Cucina el Capitano) and found the quality to be exceptional and completely worth the small surcharge. Enjoyed the western Caribbean ports of call, the onboard shows/ dive in movies, waterpark and pool areas, sports deck w/ ropes course, Sky Ride and mini golf...even visited the Thrill Theater TWICE my daughter loved it so much (as did we!). WELL DONE Carnival - the atmosphere and decor of the individual spaces were distinct and realistic (Havana Bar, Red Frog Pub and Brewery, etc.) and we had some great customer service experiences! We'll be back - soon we hope!
