Good trip, Some disappointments by katbear4363

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

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.

Nice Caribbean Cruise by pappillion1

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

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.

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?

Great cruise with lots of activities and the food was wonderful! Be sure to try the melting cake!! Food lines were long and it took a long time to get your food in the Horizon Rest. but worth the wait. Guy's Burgers are superb!! All the music and shows were very professional. Had fun with the bean bag toss game. Contest everyday!! The comedy shows were also fun!!

For a NEW Ship...just OK by ladybreez1

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

For a new and bigger ship this was not what I expected. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. More people but nothing was bigger. Pools were too small for the amount of people. The pools were the same size as any other carnival ship. Dining at the buffet was a joke as lines were extremely long. Dining options were minimal and were the same as any other carnival ship. Not worth the extra money.

Eastern Carribean Cruise by madelinemeyer

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I felt there was not enough entertainment on the ship to keep passengers engaged. The lines for the Sky Rides were very long with out a good reason. The food was good but, I feel it lacked a variety through out the different nights. I feel the cruise director could have done a better job of communicating the different events through out the day.

Cariberan Cruise on Carnival Vista by mejts

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Ship was not laid out well, the Pools were way TOO SMALL for the amount of passengers on board, standing room only most of the time. Food was good and a lots of variety. The IMAX and the Thrill theater was too expensive and the outdoor theater was too windy sailing and the movies were not to my liking. The Punch liner club was great had a great group of comedians. Cruise director is out standing couldn't be any better.

We wowed at everything we saw! by Mvee90

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This ship and route is incredible. This was our first cruise and we were blown away! We got the most basic stateroom, and were very impressed with the size of the room (compared to what we were expecting). I’m so happy I chose carnival and plan to sail with them again soon. made the process seamless.

Mediocre at best by steveike131

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

Entertainment was lacking and not enough room in venue. Food was fair at buffet. Not super clean ship; smells like overflowing toilet at times. Pools too small and no pool in adult only area. Staff was phenomenal!!
