Vista review 4/7

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Just wanted to share my Carnival Vista experience. First off, it’s a big beautiful ship. So many things to see and do. We stayed in a Havana Cabana and loved it. Guys burgers were great as usual and the steakhouse was delicious. Matt the cd was awesome. We didn’t get to do the sky ride or sky course, the lines were always long. The ship seemed crowded on sea days but never a long wait for anything like food or drinks in my opinion. We planned to see a movie on board in the theatre but never got around to it due to so many other things to do. Never a dull moment. I will definitely cruise the Vista again. I will be happy to answer any questions and have included some pics.

We're sailing on the Vista in July.  I'm curious about the SkyRide wait times.  How long of a wait are we talking about?

In Jan, it was up to an hour usually.  They have a 30 min and 1 hour waiting point sign posted in line.  You can go just as it opens or prior for the shortest.  Closed toed shoes required.  Worth it at least once...

Thanks for the quick review.  Any thoughts on the Havana experience, was it worth it?

I liked the privacy and the exclusive access to the Havana area. Even though it was open to the public after 7pm, It was never crowded. Also the private patio was awesome...especially in the mornings. Didn’t see anyone walking by other than a few neighbors but we were on the end so that could’ve been the reason. The ocean plaza was located right next door and had breakfast available every morning so we never went to the lido deck for breakfast.

We did the 6 day cruise to costa maya, Belize and Cozumel...Sun-Sat. The elegant nights were Monday and Thursday.

Yes it was very much worth it. One thing I did realize was that even though the Cabana patio was awesome, I would have been fine with a Havana interior cabin because of the private pool area. Never too crowded and very quiet. It was like having the whole area to yourself. If I knew this before,  I would have saved the extra $1000 or so. Just my opinion.

Is the Ocean Plaza busy for breakfast? We are right above it and hope to go there instead of Lido.

We went to breakfast kinda early so it wasn’t busy at all.

This cruise is a celebration so we kind of splurged, I might consider an inside in the future too.  A lot of people seem to have the same opinion.

We must have passed yall when you were getting off on the 13th.  We just got off of her this morning.  Missing her already, by the way, the Skyride was fun.  The secret is to do it while in port.
