Our Visit to The Carnival Vista - Part I, Dining on Carnival Vista

This weekend we were lucky enough to enjoy several hours on Carnival Vista, Carnival's newest ship.  There will be lots to digest here, but I'll tell you this much - we are truly impressed.  In last week's post we pointed to seven things we were looking forward to on the Vista, and they all delivered.  This 133.5K gross ton cruise ship offers up many great options not found on other Carnival ships and it's hard to try and take it all in on a three hour visit but we sure tried.  In this review, which we're guessing will take us three rounds, we'll share some of what we saw, experienced, and tasted.  Just typing this made us hungry, so we're going to start off talking about dining on the Carnival Vista... read more

Carnival Updates Policy, Willl Send Late Diners to Buffet to Think About What They've Done.

Carnival Cruise Line announced this week that they're testing updated dining policies on the Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest.  On those vessels, dining times which had previously been 6:00pm and 8:15pm have been updated to 6:00pm and 8:00pm. saying that the change will enhance the dining experience for all guests.  Makes sense yet?  This will help: Carnival also announced that persons arriving more than 30 minutes late for dinner will not be seated in the main dining room, and be referred to the buffet dining area.  Presumably, the fifteen minute-shorter gap between first and second seating will be easy to accommodate as they can now guarantee that no meal service will begin more than 30 minutes after the scheduled time, and the final meals should end a bit earlier. read more
