Ship needs some cleaning done it. Not as clean as last year when we were on it. Need to change up your shows a lot are the same as last year. A lot of kids running up and down the halls could not sleep. Other then that all was good.

Absolutely AMAZING!!! by janeroby

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Had the absolute most amazing time on Carnival Vista and cannot even begin express my gratitude towards the staff members onboard, especially Delia and Nickolas in the Horizons dining, who absolutely went out of their way to give us the most memorable dining experience. Marion and Bakti in the casino, who took the fun to a whoke new level and Pedro, who made our stateroom and us feel like home everyday! And last but not least, I Made and Suka over in the pool area, providing the best services, from remembering our drink orders to never leaving us dry! Again, so very thankful for all of the cruise members onboard and have so much more to list, if it weren’t for such a short character limit!

Overall it was ok. Just not enough staff on the lido deck. Did not like that the casino was in the middle of the ship and had to always walk thru there inhaling smoke!!!

Theater is not comfortable and does not seat enough people. Comedy theater is also on the small side.

More than the words I can find by Juliet1215

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Everything was wonderful, the service was excellent. At dinner every night our servers were so attentive and really looked out for our well being. I only remember the main waiters name, Marijan but the other two were wonderful as well, I just don’t remember theirs because I’ve never heard them before and I could not get them to stick in my brain. But I really felt like they cared about our overall well being for the whole trip, not just dinner. Always smiling. Really I can’t say enough. Also our room steward Albert was awesome. We only ever saw him in the hallway in passing but our room was always taken care of when we stepped out. I’m not someone to ask for much so he was perfect for us. The customer service provided is what made this vacation worth it and makes me want to cruise again. Thank you.

UNEXPECTED JOY AND FUN!!! by drkd19

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE-I DIDN'T FIND THE COFFEE AND JUICE BAR TILL THE LAST DAY. THE EMPLOYEES WERE UNIVERSALLY SMILING AND HAPPY-MAYBE TWO EXCEPTIONS. MY TRAVEL PARTNER WAS A LITTLE CONTENTIOUS WHICH DETRACTED A LITTLE FROM THE CRUISE. THE ART AUCTIONS WERE ENJOYABLE AND ENTERTAINING AS WAS THE JEWELRY SEMINAR. EXCURSIONS GOOD ESPECIALLY THE ROATAN GARDEN TOUR AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY!!!

Was ok but definitely needed work in area's by kyborn1975

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

It to me was utterly unorganized and slow the elevators we're to packed and very slow getting you Togo where you needed to be ok only 2 smoking areas is not fair to the smokers we paid the same amount as anyone else and we get sent to the casino or the 11th deck I feel any outside area should allow smokers to smoke instead of being separated from everyone else

A Carnival ship, only bigger and more nickel-and-dimey. by MadRussian

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Carnival likes to nickel-and-dime you. $5 to enable chat on the Hub app. $200 to just ACCESS the spa (never mind treatments). Pay for the thrill theater, pay for IMAX, upsell everywhere. Also, since I guess Vista needs to make its costs back, it is being run very hard. Clearly the maintenance does not have enough time to square it away between cruises. For a recently built ship, it's pretty beat up. Overall it was OK, just not as good a value for the money as before. Blatant upcharges are terrible.

Fun first cruise by melntom

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

Had a great first cruise experience. Staff from my room steward to the dining staff to all the staff I encountered on the ship was very nice. Food and drink choices were great. Only thing I wished was the elevator service was faster but with 4000 people that’s gonna be hard.

Nice Caribbean Cruise by pappillion1

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

the Hop on Hop off is a ripoff when you get to the beach the Jamaicas want to charge you more money to walk on the beach. It was not explained it was not included in the price of the hop on hop off. Jamaica left a bad taste in my mouth

Good trip, Some disappointments by katbear4363

Verified Review

I was looking forward to this cruise since the Vista was new to the port of Galveston. I was very disappointed in the your time dining. It was also disappointing to be turned away from the comedy club. The room is far to small.

Good Cruise - But Bealize and Cozumel are dumpy ports.. by OurTime61

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Good cruise overall, but serious security issues with the sliding glass doors to the Havana Suites do not secure properly, they close and lock but with a easy tug on the handle from the outside they will pop open... Unfortunately we had a break-in on our cruise and reported it but security although they tried was not understanding to good due to their broken English...

the Vista ship is the worst in carnival fleet. Poor layout, up and down stairs, there is not any walk way that would lead you from front to back, not enough elevators, first two days at see WiFi was out, TVs in cabin still spotty the last few days. We couldn’t watch NFL or College football.. I understand they want you out on deck buying drinks but that’s not what everyone want to do. Carnival tried to produce a top of the line larger ship to compete with Princesses and Norwegian but failed. The food was horrible. They did something to the desserts. Can’t put my finger on it but it was horrible.. I will be placing this on Facebook.. We were booked for a excursion (booked through (Carnival) in Belize to a small island and it was raining so bad they still was going to do the excursion.. I backed out after boarding.. seeing the over packed boat and all the rain was to much.. they refunded our money but why take the chance?

Had Fun but Will Not Cruise on the Vista Again by deogi53

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Vista is a beautiful ship but it needs to improve things. It was always a challenge to find a public restroom. The Dive in movies are great but they got to do something about the terrible popcorn! We loved the Thrill Theater and the IMAX. Our one favorite thing about the ship.
