Great get away experience by Clifflemmons

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Great vacation just make sure you prepay the gratuities before embarkation. It’s a surprise to get hit with that additional charge on the second to last day.

Terrible traveling to ship by MauricioV

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

We missed a day and a half at sea because of flight delays. The insurance will obviously cover you canceling but just about nothing else is covered. They don’t help when it comes to us having to spend more money because of weather delays. Flying in the day before is what we will look to do next time. Or get insurance through carnival

Enjoyable cruise; nice newer ship by jeffp2332

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

Chose the Vista out of Galveston thinking that it would save us (family of 5) money on our cruise vacation. However, Carnival now charges for so many things (food, entertainment, etc) onboard that the price of the cruise ends up being considerably higher than the rate you pay up front. Add to that the additional cost of transportation to and from Galveston, and I found that this cruise ended up costing us more than a comparable 7 day cruise on another cruiseline with a larger ship out of Port Canaveral, Ft. Lauterdale, or Miami. Will not use Carnival again - we'll stick with the "other" cruise line for the better ship layout, added space, and fewer extra charges onboard.

Fun but the most expensive trip I've ever taken! by gzpt1r

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

Good but more expensive than a 10 day trip to Hawaii or a 12 day trip to Europe.

Excellent cruise! by Hwindham

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great ship and crew. The entertainment was wonderful. The casino was a bit smaller than we have seen on other ships but that's ok!

Ready to book again by rebekahg

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

I'm so ready to return and do this cruise all over again, without my toddlers. However, the next cruise I book will probably be to my home port New Orleans. I had cruised out of Galveston before, and don't remember the process being as rushed or busy. So maybe it was just the time of year or number of ships at the port. The vista offered so much entertainment that I almost feel like I did't get enough time to soak it all in. There was so much I wanted to do (sky bike, a "who done it" clue style game, live music and more drinks at the brewery, Red frog pub) that I could turn around and book it next week, and have a total different itinerary and list of things to do. Cruise director, Matt, was outstanding, although I did't get to enjoy many shows with my young children in tow. I will definitely use the Carnival Camp more the next time my children come along.

Good time on a nice ship! by melissasmith275

Better than expected. The boat is large, and I think I prefer a smaller boat..

Above & Beyond Carnival Vista by misswallik

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

As a Gold member of Carnival Cruiseline our experience on the Vista ship exceeded our expectations. Not only the added delicious and healthy food choices, but the unbelievable enthusiasm of the crew members made us feeling welcome, comfortable and relaxed.
