Review Summary

Great Cruise..I will not cruise the Vista again...

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Great Cruise....La Romana was a No go....I was not impressed..if you don't have an excursion planned -there is nothing to do...looks like an outdoor flea market close to a ball field..😐..Aruba MUST do a tour.. Amazing.. Miguel with MAW TOURS.....YES YES YES...Very informative.......Grand Turk my Favorite CURACAO LOVED IT.... The ship was Very Nice ....If you have cruised on the Breeze then you will have no problems getting around on the Vista......I was a little disturbed by the SPA...amazing Bamboo spa massage...aaaaahh!!..I will give that a 10....after the SPA...the therapist ruined the mood by badgering my husband and I to buy 200.00 worth of products....We kept saying NO....I felt like they held us hostage and they just kept insisting on us to make a purchase..TOTALLY RUINED the SPA MOOD After spending 338.00 on the massage ALONE....I almost got ugly with them it was that BAD..one lady even put the product in my husband's hand...smh!!!!....they should back off after offering the products and not insist...Punchliner was a HIT ...Hilarious!!!!...DJ...**?* Well he was okay..not alot of dancing..he was a HIT and miss..the music flow was just not there......I miss DJ SELECT from Carival Magic..he kept the crowd dancing..I even messaged him to find out which ship he was on....Matt Cruise director was Great...BYE I SAID BYE..HAHAHHA.....you will understand that phrase once you cruise with MATT.... GYM was Nice and cool...not too crowded...buffet had alot of pork..everyday..πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘.I don't eat pork so the food options ...blaaah!!!......atleast it kept me from gaining weightπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚....my last cruise I gained 7 pounds...πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Š....Overall I was happy relaxed and had fun....oh wait...the rooms at night...felt like the AC was turned OFF...UGH..We woke up HOT EVERY NIGHT..several times during the night....I kept the A.C. all the way down..all day it never got cold....not sure what was wrong with the air...i was so glad to get in my OWN BED...BEWARE of the A.C. AT NIGHT...I will.not cruise the Vista again...I like the BREEZE BETTER...I am booked for Horizon Feb 2019....Praying that I can give a 5 star review......
