Carnival Vista

July 2016 - Carnival Vista to Europe - Mediterranean

carnival not for luxury cruising

Vista is a new ship with lots of deck space since they sacrificed pool areas. The Havana area has its own pool zone but the suites have no distinct areas for them. There are several good specialty restaurants but the anytime dining is a disaster since everyone wants to eat late. Gym area is ok, sometimes a little warm and it could have used some more room for weight area. If you play basketball you are out of luck until 11pm since someone designed this ship with the specialty restaurants right under the court. Cabins are nice but they have poorly positioned night lights that are too bright. Overall a pretty good cruise.

Regal Princess

March 2016 - Regal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Princess Regal Eastern

This is only my third princess cruise out of 20 plus other cruises. The ship décor and amenities are ok but as ships from Italian shipyards go there are stairs that go nowhere, difficulty getting across some floors and lines at the elevators because of the limited ways to get around the ship. I find a lack of overall shopping venues and not enough things to do on sea days compared to other lines. The buffet was extensive and very good, we did not eat in the dining room and the specialty restaurants were average, in fact the pizza and Italian venues could have a better menu selection. Seems like the whole industry keeps cutting back on services, example you cannot use the soda package on their private island because they only serve cans. drinks are measured as they are poured so god forbid you get a little extra alcohol which likely costs them peanuts. The cabin size was good although lots of closet space but could use a few more drawers in the room. pool area on this ship very limited so forget about jumping in a pool to cool off and you better get there by 730 on sea days since everyone leaves a towels and runs. They need to enforce the rules about that better on this ship. Otherwise an ok cruise for an ok price. Entertainment was limited for us since a dancer hurt herself the first day and after that it was comic after comic.

texarhos's Tips

Carnival Vista Carnival Vista - The daily newsletter is weak on information so need to read it carefully. There is little information about ports visited probably so you would buy the excursions. There were barbecues on the day at sea only which we found by luck.
