Thanks Carnival Vista for making my 20th year anniversary, one to remember. We enjoyed the crew, staff and activities provided on-board. The ship design is amazing and the food and entertainment is great. Some much to do, you will be happy you chose Carnival.

Vista - Large, but not in charge by kdfandkef

Staff was marvelous, despite Carnival not having adequate staff to handle the amount of vacationers. The ship itself was less than impressive. Cruise Director Schwartz was great. Ernesto was wonderful and attentive.

We travel to Miami and order to sale on the Vista we are going on the horizon from Barcelona in April hoping some of the things are a little different on that ship. We love the carnival atmosphere and look forward to many more cruises

1st Time Cruising by cswann501

Ship left a lot later than we were supposed too which made for a very rocky 1st night and day. I feel like we should have been compensated. Food in the main dining was very bland

Beautiful Caribbean Cruise! by njwagoner03

The Vista is a very nice ship. Layout is very similar to the other Carnival ships, so it's nice that if you have traveled on Carnival before it doesn't seem like you have to learn an entirely new ship and feels comfortable. Still lots of fun exploring and things offered to do.

I don't think I will be traveling on Carnival again. The food was horrible and the organization was never there. Ship was dirty and overall a bad experience.

Room was to small. Food was very good. Atrium was lousy, looks like it should be in Kmart. No wow factor. Seafood shack was good. Staff is excellent. Very friendly. Clean ship. Nice lido deck. Sky ride is fun. Water slide is great. Carnival breeze is a nicer looking ship. Shows were nothing to scream about.

Best so far! by spsurles

T3 beautiful, tropical ports on a ship that takes 3 Days to really see in its entirety. Expensive, but satisfying. Lots of opportunity for romantic experiences and outdoor or indoor activities.

Not what I expected by baker51572

I had sailed on the Vista in February and had a wonderful time so I was super excited to take my daughter and family back. Well I got a huge disappointment!!!!!!!!!!! So many cut backs, lack luster food options ( unless you want to pay for the up charge) very limited pool music, unsupervised children running all over the ship and water park, unsupervised kids screaming in the pool during "Movie under the stars". Men smoking cigars wherever they wanted. Just all around RUDE people. So sad

Disappointed by tomedwardkey

After the first day and a half we realized that we needed to make the best of the situation to enjoy our trip because it wasn't going well in the beginning so despite the food and service we had a good time finding things to do that we did enjoy doing. It wasn't worth what I spent. We may not Cruise with carnival again there were plenty of carnival loyalists on board but carnival wasn't for us as well as the clientele that was on board.

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by slucky44

Due to all the hurricanes that were going on at the time of our trip we were not able to go to the original places we had for the cruise. We went to other places and I must say they were all very nice. The only port I did not enjoy was La Romana in the Dominican Republic. Very dirty and was a sore site. I understand the Island has its issues, but that port should be cleaned up to make it want to entice people to look forward to visiting that area.

overall I enjoyed my cruise experience, we look forward to traveling with Carnival again. I hope that some of the information regarding the daily activities would be made available a bit earlier so that we could plan ahead.

Beautiful ship but not my most tranquil experiance by clydeloreng

I don't know if we'd ever try carnival again. No apologies for anything at all. I feel they owed us some recompense for the lack of the port but we haven't heard a word. We had bad experiences with carnivals paper thin walls and people out of control from too much party. In a previous sailing We also witnessed a death on board below our balcony in a hot tub. It was terrible, they keep trying to resuscitate the man to no avail. Nothing said to us about that either. We were hurried off that ship at disembarkation. It ruined our whole experiance of that cruise. But with a new ship and long time between sailings we thought we'd try again. The only thing I can say, you are now educated as to sailing this ship.

I would love to sail on this ship again. Not hurricane season. I would choose different ports. I would also suggest cleaning rooms twice a day. Bringing only carry ones and backpack was wonderful on and off ship.

Was accommodating when it comes to embarking and disembarking proofing a little overworked and the design for a new ship could have been a little nicer but overall it was okay
