Review summary

I enjoyed my time on the carnival vista. I think the activities (outside of the casino and the club) could have been extended because there was not much do to after 11:00 am.  

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The pizza station could have been coordinated better. The pizza staff would wait for all the pizzas to be passed out before prepping, and cooking extra pizza. This caused the wait to be really, really long. I would have liked the lunch restaurants to have been opened longer. The seafood shack was really bad.

Onboard Activities

The activities could have been longer. Outside of the casino, and the club-Everything shuts down by 11:00am

Ship Quality

I thought the ship was nice, and very clean. I was not as happy with the design-not as much as I thought I would have been. The lay out was a bit confusing, even the carnival team had a hard time giving directions.
