Cross That Off the Bucket List
Carnival Vista Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review summaryWe had a blast sailing on the Vista. We only wish there were fewer people and less of a push to sell you something behind every door.
Food and Dining
Meridian and Rio were the bomb. I hope I remembered their names correctly because they were incredible!
Guy's Burger Joint
Line was perpetually long, burger was burnt to a crisp, but the fries were good.
Pizzeria Del Capitano
Didn't get to eat there because the line was practically hanging over the side of the ship and dragging in our wake.
Great at night, but way to many rowdy, unaccompanied kids. Weird thing, the floor was always insanely slippery. There wasn't a moment I was in there or passing through that I didn't see a crew member swabbing the floor. Even then I was close to eating it every time.
A little hectic with seating in the morning, especially for large groups; but far more pleasant than the Marketplace.
The door handle to our balcony fell off and we went to the Guest service counter on Deck 3. The blonde lady was super helpful and had it fixed the day we told them. Then the next day, we were given champagne and strawberries. We are so appreciative!
Really wanted to learn how to participate but there wasn't much in the way of getting involved. The smoke wasn't great either.
Not enough chairs, and staying in a Cloud 9 stateroom made that reality disappointing.
Huge waste of space. Worked fine but absolutely could have consolidated the space as a kids food place to keep the lido clear.
The photos were not great. We did a few silly shoots out of frustration too. Still awful.
Cloud 9 Spa
Too many high pressure sales folks and pseudo-science jargon. I know what a spa offers, just show me where everything is and leave the sales out of it.
Always busy, which is to be expected. Most of the shady areas were held by the same sets of people over 6 days. I did not feel welcome in that area the entire time.
Blatantly a miniature of the casino designed to siphon money from kids. If I see one more prize claw, I'm gunna hurl.
The theater was awesome, the people were not. I guess the people on vacation are also taking a break from manners! The amount of talking during the movie was unreal. It was also a real disappointment not to have freshly popped popcorn.
Loved it. Never a dull moment. Cheeky Charlie made the trip for us.
The entertainment was always incredible, the seats in the back had obstructed views. Not enough people taking drink orders.
