I was lucky enough to spend time on Carnival Vista in the Med during her Maiden Season. This was my first Carnival cruise - it certainly won't be my last! The ship itself is large, brand new and brightly decorated with a Caribbean feel. You can totally relax, party, eat or play as hard as you like. We were pleased to find that the onboard 'adult-only' area was free to access - perfect for some peace and quiet. I would say that the amenities for both couples and families were on par. The food onboard was a delight. There's far more onboard than just a buffet for lunch: burgers, stir fry (fresh to order), burritos, tacos - all included. A culinary highlight was eating in the Italian specialty restaurant, Cucina del Capitano - fantastic food and great service! A final stand-out feature was the ship's Cruise Director, who chatted to everyone onboard, was incredibly funny - the real 'star of the show'; it was great to be around such a fun character. I'd definitely recommend this ship for anybody looking for a relaxed, friendly onboard atmosphere.
