Fun western Caribbean cruise by Glo01

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

Carnival Vista is a ship everyone should experience. My family had a ball from dancing and comedy at liquid club , the piano bar singing. Karaoke all over ship, the lido deck food, drinks and service was a great hang out place. The dinning hall horizon the waitress Diane Was gracious and made sure you were please with dinner. Reflection dinning service Totot, Krisma, Roberto took care of our family over 25 people and never miss a beat. Everyone received great service. I look forward to cruising again with Carnival especially on the vista with Matt the cruise director fantastic.

This was a very nice cruise with great ports. The cruise ship and the cruise director were great. The shows and comedy were less than expected.

Very good trip overall but still disappointed with Carnival Vista by mthoma26

We had an extremely good vacation and if it were not for the issue we had with Carnival it would have been even better. One major suggestion is to always double and triple, heck even quadruple check that any special request you need (bed rail as an example) be on your reservation be it with your agent and even calling the company directly as more than not it does not happen as it happened in our case. I called carnival directly to make sure a bed rail request was placed and it never happened hence putting my child's safety at risk of potentially falling off of the bed or couch. We had to come up with out own ingenious way to make sure he was safe as the answer by the staff was to place a table beside the couch (even more dangerous!!), then their second suggestion was to place my 3 yr old in a crib!! The way they handle my formal complaint was sub-par and unacceptable and they basically called us liars saying we never called Carnival to request it. The supervisor even went so far to say that in his 10 yrs with Carnival he has never heard of a bed rail!! All they saw was people trying to get money from them when that was never asked for at any time, we wanted the bed rail pure and simple, we never once asked for any sort of compensation!! So beware as the "customer is always right" does not exist for Carnival guest services or corporate head office for that matter!!

Pretty Good Experience by weringo

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

This ship is amazing and the staff was great. Customer service desk lines were too long and they somehow deleted my credit card on file was caused a purchase (IMax movie ticket) to be denied on board. I ended up having to go to the customer service desk and wait for over half an hour for the issue to be resolved. The exact same thing happened to my parents who were on board as well and they had to spend over an hour in line to get the problem resolved.

Wonderful trip by svanhuis

The staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to help us in anything we needed. Emylynn and Eszter are the best bartenders on the ship. Even when they were slammed due to events, they always had a smile on their faces and always called us by our 1st name. I do believe they would make really great managers.

NIce cruise by kermitlover

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

We were a little disappointed with the over all atmosphere. The main dinning room look more like a cafeteria than a cruise ship. It didn't help that they allowed people in for dinner in bathing suits. It was also strange to have to check in for a table on a different floor. It was also way to crowded , you had to wait in line for everything!

Best vacation of my life by Ronald0291

Everything about the cruise was great but the shore excursions definitely made for great lifetime memories. Also the Carnival Him app was essential for navigating and finding fun things during our time on the ship.

Relaxing-Exciting-Enjoyable by a2nkid

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

Overall we enjoyed the time away with family and friends. What was disappointing is when we were given room assignments we were told my sister and I were close to each other on the same hall. This was not the case and it caused problems in caring for my son. This was very important for us to be on the same hall and it was expressed due to the need to share in the care given responsibilities. My cabin steward "Dedick was very attentive and did a superb job!

Amazing cruise ship! by Mseq

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

I would book this cruise again. However I would book it directly through Carnival not a third party. There were numerous offers Carnival offered that I was not able to take advantage of because I did not book directly through them. The people at were less than forthcoming with information that I could have taken advantage of.

What a Great Cruise! by Dinkahoy

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

We enjoyed it very much. The Carnival Vista is one of the newest and largest Carnival ships and has lots of extras. It was really the best for the kids. We did go at a time when it was very crowded and would rather it have been when there wasn't so much of a wait for everything and not so many people.

My family and I were part of a large group (27). We had a wonderful time. We wished it was a couple of days longer! We will do it again. The highlight was the NBA championship game which played on the seaview deck. Half the ship was there watching it!
