Review summary

Vista is everything you think it will be! Incredible ship.....everything about it. Excellent cruise director, Matt! "Can I get two claps!" .....with a British accent! Excellent Assistant manager at the spa. No words! Professional, personable...loves his job!! Said goodbye, gave me a hug on my last day! Book the Havana Cabana....you will NOT be sorry!

Embarkation

Carnival has a new system of assigning Arrival Appointment Times...it works fabulous! I waliked thru a nearly vacant boarding line. In about 10 minutes, was on the ship with my Havana Cabana cabin READY!

Ship experiences

The house band "Sweet Soul...." house cover band two performers with band behind...INCREDIBLE. Covered 80s, 90s hits. May I say the male vocalist looked just like PRINCE! Easy on the eyes....hehe.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Excellent! Easy....did carryon luggage.....walked off ship. Entire process about 10 minutes!! Two negatives: 1. A cabin steward KNOCKS on your door at 7:00 am! I was so asleep I fell out of bed to answer door! Before I answered door, he said "Time to wake up!" Swear. 2. Walked pass Matt (Cruise Director) very charming throughout cruise, said "goodbye Matt!" ....was two feet away. He looked over me.....continued to talk on walkie talkie.....said "bye"...half acknowledging me. 😤
