Review summary

We had an amazing time on Vista! I was a little worried at first from reading some negative reviews but the experience on the ship is what you make of it! The food was the best we’ve ever had on any cruise ship. Lido Buffet, MDR, JiJi’s, 555 steakhouse, Guy’s Burgers, etc we’re absolutely delicious! Not to mention the incredible service we had at all of them. Our room was on the 14th deck and we had amazing views along with access to a Cloud 9 spa, which we enjoyed almost every day.

Super easy. We had a check in time of 12:00 and were on the ship by 12:15!

Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

4 out of 5

Food was delicious, and they offered us a free bottle of wine the first night. The dress code was elegant but people were dressed in shorts and t-shirts.

Redfrog Pub and Brewery

Loved the fishbowl!! Great mixed drinks and karaoke.

Lido Marketplace

5 out of 5

The food was so good! Definitely the best out of any Lido buffet I’ve had before on Carnival. Another important thing to mention is that there was plenty of seating for everyone. Usually buffet dining rooms are super packed but there was always a place to sit.

Guy's Burger Joint

5 out of 5

I could have eaten Guy’s burgers all day everyday!! I had it twice over the duration of our cruise and I’m already craving it!

JiJi Asian Kitchen

5 out of 5

Absolutely loved JiJi’s! The staff was wonderful and made great recommendations. We had the Kung Pao chicken and it was to die for!

Absolutely gorgeous port. We loved the BOSS underwater excursion and riding the sky lift to beach and back while enjoying the beautiful views of Roatan.

Cozumel, Mexico

We did the Snuba excursion and it was a great time. The only complaint we had was having to get through the port shops and through security along with 5 other cruise ships full of people.

Belize City, Belize

5 out of 5
We did the buggy, zip-line, and cave tubing excursion and it was so much fun! Highly recommended!! (Drivers in Belize are kinda crazy though lol)

Galveston, Texas

4 out of 5
Not the most beautiful port, but easy to get to.
