Review summary

Carnival Vista is a very nice ship. The Havana rooms are worth the extra $. I was surprised how much I enjoyed Roatan. Didn't know much about it beforehand. Beautiful island!

Galveston is easy. Park across the street, go get on ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Guy's Burgers are excellent. Steakhouse was worth the extra $ Most of the buffet and main dining rooms were good. I do think I may have had some bad shrimp from Italian restaurant on the last sailing day.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Havana area was great for board games. We also did the ropes course and sky rider was fun! Havana hot tubs & lounging area were never crowded.

Shows in main area were good, but not spectacular. I think RC puts on better shows. However, the voice of the main singer was awesome!! Also, the comedians were really good!

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

It is a little confusing getting from front to back of ship on the promenade levels. Had to go through the Casino which I don't like because of smoke.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was great! Balcony was HUGE!!! I just wish they had more comfortable loungers on the balcony. There was only one that would adjust for easy reading. The other chairs had you slouching too much. Not very comfortable. For that size balcony and price for room you should have 2 decent loungers similar to on the Havana deck with some cushions.

Ship tip

Book a Havana Room!

Pretty lengthy process, but not unexpected. We carried our own luggage off and took about 2.5-3 hours total.
