Second Time Cruisers-Had Lots of Fun! by eml30

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

First, the cruise was great, staff was excellent, met a lot of nice fellow cruisers too. But, we had a problem with the Cheers package-no one said that it could not be used on Sunday due to some "Texas law" that nobody could explain. We went to Guest Services and after some discussion, we received a one day pass for all the drinks we wanted. We paid over $700 for 7 days, in reality, we received drinks only for 6 days. Bring this to the attention of Carnival please. That was the only glitch in what was a great cruise, our second one on the Vista.

Soooo many kids!! by lisadawn1970

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

We enjoyed our cruise, however we will never cruise again while kids are out of school, and unfortunately it's not all the kids fault - parents think the ship is a babysitter and they run wild!! Our room issues were listed above and we found the ship to be confusing - normally after a day or 2 you figure things out, but we were still getting turned around on the final day and we are seasoned cruisers. We will sail her again, but be careful our cabin choices and time of year

Excellent by pmolnar16

Excellent. All ports except Montego Bay were thoroughly enjoyable. Entertainment was top notch and we enjoyed the food. Main dining room was understaffed. Our waiters provided terrific service but had way too many tables to look after effectively.

Another wonderful Carnival cruise by JanaPote

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

We love our Carnival cruises and they are always memorable, but the Vista did not feel as luxurious as other ships we have been on. The staff were terrific and seemed happy to be meeting our needs. The buffet food was bland and lacked variety, but I was happy not to be cooking! We will always return to Carnival, but probably not the Vista. We missed the grand atrium upon entering the ship, and definitely missed the glass elevator.

Great trip by ashaughton

Overall a great experience. I own stock in Carnival and think you are doing a great job. I brought 11 family members with me on this cruise and they all had a great time, some of them were first time cruisers, others like RCL.

Never again. by shandra0529

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Never cruising again. First off the staff wasn't the friendliest...except for our cabin steward. He was awesome! The horizon waiters were pushy and we seemed rushed through dinner. Formal night was nothing more than a night to dress up. There were no beautiful carved fruit and veggie displays, I didn't see an ice sculpture except for the one they used as a demo. Debarkation was chaos!! They tell you they will call your desk at8 yet you are supposed to be out of your room at 8 so they can clean the cabins for the next group. So where do th pu go with all your luggage? They didnt mention that. Most important reason NOT to cruise Carnival is their emergency contact number is a joke. Our 5 month pregnanat daughter fell and went to the hospital for observation. She tried calling the ship for four days many times a day and it always said there was "maintenance". I called when we were back in shore and had the same messge. Rediculous....never again Carnival...never again!

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!

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.

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!!!

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.
