I can honestly tell you there is no way we will ever go on a Carnival cruise again. The product is sub-par, the food is just so-so (even Guys Burger Joint got old quickly). Spend a bit more (probably) and go with one of the other cruise lines!

The process was very easy and we were on board the ship much quicker than expected
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
This ship (Vista) has possibly the WORST physical layout relative to food I have ever experienced - couple that with the fact that the food, especially the buffet, was NEVER hot, and well, you get the picture - if you are a foodie, heck even if you just want to eat a hot meal, don't go!!!!

Vista had the smallest "pool" in the spa area. Decent fitness center but the cruise director felt almost non-existent. His name was Schwartz
Didn't go to any of the shows - reviews from others were poor at best
no kids taken on cruise
Service and Staff

It was just OK - nothing special - nice towel animals

The ship was well maintained and clean but the layout is horrible
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
The room was nice - when we arrived, the balcony and chairs were covered in salt - realized on our return to final port why - Bad weather in the gulf. The room cleaning staff had it all cleaned up by day 2
My advise for sailing in the Carnival Vista - just don't! Pick NCL or RC
