Review summary

We had an amazing time on our cruise. We always have the time of our lives and have nothing negative to say. We love all of the food options and onboard shopping that Carnival always has. Can't wait for cruising resumes. We have surely missed it this year!

Lines can be long at times but worth it!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

We always take advantage of the main dining options. There are always so many options to choose from.

5 out of 5
We always find something fun to do on the ship. We always participate with some of the games and activities offered on the ship!


5 out of 5
We absolutely love the planned activities and entertainment. Our favorites are the comedians and of course the theater. We have never been disappointed!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We have NEVER had a steward that didn't go above and beyond. The staff has always gone above and beyond to cater to our needs. The one we remember the most was "Sutamba"

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Overall the ship was pretty clean. The staff all work so hard. There are a few signs of wear and tear which is normal. Great ship overall.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We loved the size of the room. It was very clean. We always bring a cordless fan just to sleep better at night as we are accustomed to sleeping with a fan. The staff always does a great job cleaning everyday. Love, love, love the towel animals. They always put a smile on my face. I would love however, to have a chocolate or mint on the pillow like the good ole days!

Ship tip

It can be very crowded at times as Vista is a much bigger ship and you may be waiting for an elevator at times. I miss the glass elevators on this ship. It is a beautiful ship though!

Ports of call

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

We ended up riding on the Magic Chair which we loved. Everyone should try it!

Cozumel, Mexico

My husband and I can always find something fun to do at this port. We usually go to Mr. Sanchos which is worth the money.

Galveston, Texas

4 out of 5
My family and I really love Galveston. There are so many different things to do there and a lot of great restaurants and activities. We usually book a hotel two nights prior to setting sail. Great port!

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Beautiful beaches!

Belize City, Belize

We are always so sad when leaving. The process does take a while and lines can be long at times.
