Cariberan Cruise on Carnival Vista by mejts

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship was not laid out well, the Pools were way TOO SMALL for the amount of passengers on board, standing room only most of the time. Food was good and a lots of variety. The IMAX and the Thrill theater was too expensive and the outdoor theater was too windy sailing and the movies were not to my liking. The Punch liner club was great had a great group of comedians. Cruise director is out standing couldn't be any better.

For a NEW Ship...just OK by ladybreez1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

For a new and bigger ship this was not what I expected. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. More people but nothing was bigger. Pools were too small for the amount of people. The pools were the same size as any other carnival ship. Dining at the buffet was a joke as lines were extremely long. Dining options were minimal and were the same as any other carnival ship. Not worth the extra money.

Eastern Carribean Cruise by madelinemeyer

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I felt there was not enough entertainment on the ship to keep passengers engaged. The lines for the Sky Rides were very long with out a good reason. The food was good but, I feel it lacked a variety through out the different nights. I feel the cruise director could have done a better job of communicating the different events through out the day.

Mediocre at best by steveike131

Entertainment was lacking and not enough room in venue. Food was fair at buffet. Not super clean ship; smells like overflowing toilet at times. Pools too small and no pool in adult only area. Staff was phenomenal!!

We wowed at everything we saw! by Mvee90

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This ship and route is incredible. This was our first cruise and we were blown away! We got the most basic stateroom, and were very impressed with the size of the room (compared to what we were expecting). I’m so happy I chose carnival and plan to sail with them again soon. made the process seamless.

Bad experience would not recommend by longpham1009

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

My room had strong odors, sheets and comforters had to be changed out 3 times in a row. Our first waiter was condescending and rude. Getting off the ship at the ports was extremely difficult for seniors and families with children on strollers due to having to take stairs to get to floor 0.

Good cruise by sdwflowers

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

I was shocked at the embarkation process. I hope they come up with a better process. It was hot and the line took almost an hour to get on the ship. Once we got on the ship the lines for food were the same. That is my only complaint

Good But Music Close Early by noelhnieves

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was clean and impressive. Staff very friendly, however, the clubs and bars and restaurants including the buffet close early. The Havana Club with live music closes at 12:30. Clubs normally close at 2am or 4am. I felt that the cruise send everybody to sleep at 12:30.... Pool areas crowded with kids and very small. Not for adult hang-out. This is more a family boat, not adult party boat. Buffett also closes constantly, and restaurants are open only from 6 to 9:30

One of most entertaining and fun cruises I had ever been on. by desidoo25

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

This was my First Carnival Cruise. Great ship. Very clean. Excellent service and staff. Food was good for cruise food. Drinks were strong. Excellent bartenders, great variety of food and entertainment. It was a little over crowded but I guess that can be expected that time of the year (August). I will definitely sail Carnival again.
