Review summary

We have sailed five carnival ships and each one is a bit different, Vista is a beautiful ship with plenty to offer. Modern, clean and something for everyone. Was unsure of all the reviews about the “layout” being a negative. Yes it is a little unique compared to other ships, however , if you get to know the layout you will see that it’s a different design so that it’s not just like every other ship. The limelight lounge was at the end of the corridor and we did not think it would hold the crowd for comedy shows but we were wrong. It was huge and held the crowds well and the exits were easy to use. Will sail her again soon.

We have no problem with this port for ease and convienece, one suggestion would be some signage or port personnel to direct groups dropped off so that they don’t just gather where the lines to board are.

Very clean and excellent condition. Heard many comments of the layout being bad. It took us two days to learn the layout and realize it’s to breakup The same ole routine. We had no issues.

After many cruises we have never liked the crowded exits. Everyone wants off the ship. Us, on this cruise would like to have stayed for another week so we tried a different disembark plan. We checked our bags the nigh5 before, went to lido buffet ate relaxed and enjoyed talking about the great time we had on our vacation. Choose final disembark numbers and walked right off ship and to car in ten minutes. No shoving, no pushing . We will do this every cruise from now on. NO STRESS
