Review summary

Relaxing, fun and enjoyable trip. The ship was not our favorite but it was clean, the service was outstanding, and the activities were fun.


1 out of 5
Embarkation was a breeze compared to previous embarkations. We arrived ten minutes prior to our boarding time and we were ushered right in line and never stopped moving or sat down until we reached the ship. The whole process took maybe 20-30 minutes. The Carnival employees were very nice and helpful.

The food on the Vista was generally very good. The main dining room food was great as well as the other included food options.

Onboard Activities

The sky ride and ropes course was very fun and the wait wasn't too long. The IMAX showed wonderful documentaries. Trivia and dance classes were fun as always.

The musicians on the Vista were amazing, very talented. The string trio, the guitar and keyboard duo, the piano bar, the DJ, etc.

Children's Programs

I don't have any children.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our dining room team was absolutely amazing! Leslie, Earl John, and Agus were so fun, charming and kind. They made dinner one of the best parts of the cruise. Our room steward Kelvin was wonderful as well. He made sure we always had everything we needed and always said hello with a smile.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The overall and design and layout of the Vista felt lacking compared to other Carnival ships. The ship design felt modulated as if it was designed and built separately. There wasn't a good flow. The ship was clean however. Public women's restrooms were well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our cabin was comfortable and cozy. Plenty of storage. The bed was just right. The cabin was perfect for an interior room.
