Great Cruise

Carnival Vista overall was a good cruise. If you’re looking for a good simple cruise try the Vista

Carnival Vista is a great ship. I LOVED our cruise director, Schwartz. I cruised the Vista back in September 2017 out of Miami and he was the BEST ever so I was excited to see him and hear his voice again. Yes, this was my second time on the Carnival Vista and I was not disappointed.

The Vista is great. Loved the IMAX and the Havana deck for Havana balcony rooms. The spa is also amazing.

grand suite was nice cozy clean and spacious big balcony. the casino was big and has new machines. dont like the new elevators they are slow and confusing food was good. cloud 9 spa is not as good as the others on the dream class Havana deck is pretty nice.

Had so much fun service was slow the vista needs more servers. I get you might have your servers positioned how you need but they took longer than they should have to serve drinks mainly.

Beautiful boat but too many people. Won’t sail on a large ship again. Boat was great other than rude people. Long slide lines but if you go while In port no lines. The kids loved the bike.

great cruise

Second Time Cruisers-Had Lots of Fun!

Dec 4th, 2018

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.

Didn't meet our expectations

Dec 3rd, 2018

The Platinum level seems to be worth less and less. Lots more people...same number of elevators. Almost no storage in cabin or bathroom. Staff even piles kleenex & toilet paper on the floor. Few shelves. Few drawers. Not enough 110 outlets NO USB oulets. Very slow dinner service. Liquid Lounge?? Funny name. Funny location. Funny size. 2.5 hours to disembark. Many things seem to be in decline.
