Customer reviews for Carnival Vista

Wonderful time on Carnival Vista! The cabin very clean and the staff work tirelessly for your every need. The entertainment was amazing! The shows so professional and the dancers and singers were work class, Sky ride was good and Taylor very helpful. Shore excursions Rudy helped a lot too. Bar staff tended to your every need. The band asta le vista were brilliant. Would definitely go back.

A big thanks to Warren for organising our cruise and stay on 20th June on the Vista especially when you had to deal with two couples at opposite ends of the country. The Athens Gate Hotel for our overnight stay before the cruise was perfect it was right in the middle of Athens with the Acropolis as a backdrop and the Temple of Zeus at the front, the food in the rooftop restaurant was excellent the taxi transfers were on time we left the hotel at 12 noon and we were on board by 1.30pm. We are looking at another cruise now so you will be getting a call soon. Thanks again.

I was very lucky to be invited to spend 3 nights on board the amazing Carnival Vista. There are so many exciting activities on board from the first iMax cinema at sea, an impressive waterpark. A ropes course and Skyride. The food was exceptional and there was a great choice. Burritos at Blue Iguana and the mouth watering burgers at Guys Burger or if you love seafood then the seafood shack is a must. Every taste is catered for. The specialty dining I can highly recommend and 1 big tip is to share a cheesecake at Fahrenheit 555. It is huge. The adults only section Serenity is perfect and you definitely felt you were away from it all. The hammocks were very relaxing. The main pool area was great fun. The Cruise Director and his team made sure everyone was having lots of fun. A pre dinner drink at Blue Iguana or Red Frog is a must. Sit back and relax at sea with a cocktail in your hand. If you love movies then I highly recommend you watch a movie under the stars with popcorn and relax with a beautiful sea breeze. The on board entertainment was fantastic. Great shows and lots of choice. You can start at the Piano Bar and move on to Cuba to dance the night away at the Havana Bar. I loved all the outdoor space and Al fresco dining. Perfect for a summers evening in the Mediterranean or a night at sea in the caribbean. Cabins were a great size. Lots of storage space. I wouldn't hesitate to sail on Vista again. She is ideal for young families and couples.
