Carnival Vista is a ship by Carnival Cruises, a family orientated cruise liner who sails all over the world.

We sailed on this ship as guests of Carnival Cruise Line where we sailed around the Eastern Caribbean and The Bahamas from Florida. Our trip was full of priceless family memories and experiences that we wouldn’t have done any other way.

In this guide, we’ll be sharing our honest review of what it’s like to sail on Carnival Vista as well as some helpful tips for cruising!

Attend the Sailaway Party

Don’t miss the Sailaway party. It’s the place to be at the start of any cruise, and this one on Carnival Vista was cool. It’s always a fun way to kick off any cruise and get excited about the days ahead.

This party was also our first introduction to cruise director, Matt, and instantly you could tell he was born for this role. Matt had the ship rocking with most of us up dancing, singing, and sipping on a cocktail as we sailed away from Miami.

The deck area around the pool was packed as they followed Matt’s lead with dance moves and tango lines. Carnivals tag line is, “FUN FOR ALL, ALL FOR FUN “, so I guess you could say Matt is the director of FUN!

We’ve been fortunate to sail out of Sydney Harbor on Carnival Spirit, and I don’t think you can beat that setting, but with views over South Beach as we sailed towards Jamaica, departing on this Caribbean cruises from Miami was a spectacular start!

Have Dinner at Horizons Restaurant

We preferred this more formal dining option of sitting down to a set menu that rotates to that of the “buffet” style option at the Lido Marketplace. And the kids menu was nice with an activity book for them each evening.
