Review summary

Our first cruise ever an now we are hooked! have 4 more booked in the next 2 yrs. The Vista is a very large ship so it seemed the staff to guest ratio is off and that left us waiting a lot. The ship is beautiful and the Balcony room we had was wonderful. Our room steward was very sweet. The chefs table was a very elaborate experience. The steak house is a must!!!! It is super hard to get any loungers near the pool due to chair hogs. Overall we had a fantastic time.

The water here is gorgeous. We booked a snorkel excursion through the ship. It was a nice excursion but the water was really to rough that day for snorkeling.
