I enjoyed the new and multiple bars, restaurants and lounge areas. Havana is a must and so is the IMAX. Vista is still growing up but a great family ship.

Service and Staff

Budi & Shane were great. Lots of help from the staff that is clearly overwhelmed by the volume of people.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Cabin was great and the room staff was amazing. Only thing is we saw a live roach in the room which is gross.

Ship tip

Be prepared to wait a long time for all the activities. Plan line time or be real early to shows. The wait applies to food service as well.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida
