Food poisoning, over crowded boats, and over crowded ports. I no longer enjoy cruising because of this cruise

It was fine. People everywhere and it took time but that's to be expected

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
My fiance had food poisoning the night before Cozumel and it made the day at port horrible plus the 7 cruise ships at port made it unbearable getting off the boat

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Casino was fun but I really wanted to catch a comedy show and every time I went to one I was turned away because it was over crwded


1 out of 5
Couldn't get into the comedy shows due to over crowding

Children's Programs

We didn't vacation with children

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff was the absolute anchor for carnival. If it wasn't for the awesome staff I wouldn't even consider going carnival again

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very clean and Vista has a nice layout

Cabin / Stateroom

The name says it all. Standard balcony

Ship tip

Money trumps all. If you want nice or above average you need a thick wallet for sure

Ports of call

Galveston, Texas

Belize City, Belize

3 out of 5
Having to take the shuttle boats wasn't fun, the water was very rocky that day but they did have several boats running so it actually didn't take as long as I thought it would to get people on and off the boats

Cozumel, Mexico

1 out of 5
Extremely over crowded and the locals have no shame when it comes to ripping off tourists


1 out of 5
Makes me never want to cruise again! Took almost 1.5 hours to get off the island after getting off the boat
