  1. That is what I was looking at as well when I saw the deck plans. was hoping that Carnival would address the crowd issues but I will wait on the initial reviews. It seems like everyone will crowd in the central station area as it seems to be the biggest open space so far.
  2. Looking at the Mardi Gras deck plans, I am concerned about the crowd control. It seems that carnival has design the basics to fit their other ship models with a few upgrades here and there. I was on the oasis and it never felt crowd due to the layout of the ship. I would sail Harmony just for that.
  3. I start my cruise off with a chocolate mocha getaway, then I like to have the chocolate martini on formal nights. The last day I have my we shall return again drink-Tiramisu martini.
  4. I sailed on RC Oasis of the Seas and they did a great job with crowd control for a ship that carries over 5,000 people. It will be interesting to see how Carnival does it. I look forward to trying her out.
  5. I took DS to the candy store for gummies...again I decided to head to tea time while DS spent time with MIL. It was held from 3pm-4pm in the dining room on 3 aft of ship: Here is our towel animal for the day: Towards the evening, it became very windy on deck. I am guessing we could expect light storms: I decided to try the sushi for dinner. I got it to go. Here is the menu: Here is tonight's menu for the dining room: Up Next...Final sea day!
  6. We just walked around and took in the sights. We didn't go to the beach or anything. I forgot to get pictures but it was packed on the beach. Due to the heat, many were returning to the ship early. Sunset at sail way: We had reservations at Cucina del Capitano. I last ate there when I was on the Magic and enjoyed it! Here is the menu: And now for the food.- One thing that they tell you is that if 2 or more people order the same app, that they will bring out a large plate of it. After dinner, we retired to bed. Up next... 1st of last sea day
  7. I know. It was amazing. I love how green it was. The only downside was how hot it was.
  8. Once we exit the ship and went through the store, I quickly realize that I should get a stroller for DS. MIL and SIL waited in the store area. There are benches for you to sit down and take your time. So back to the ship we went, all the way to deck 11. It cost $10 for the day to rent a stroller. Now that we were officially set, back off the ship to tackle the hill! Once up the hill, we were in the port area. We decided to walk down to the beach. You can elect to take the sun chairs as I call them if you like, the cost is $7 per way or $14 for a day: Vista was not the only ship in port today. Holland America which is a Carnival Corp ship was docked with us as well. They were on the start of a 23 day panama canal transit cruise!
  9. It was going to a hot one today. I made sure to apply extra sunscreen. As most who have visited here may know, you have to go through this store and up a huge hill to get to excursions waiting area, stores in the port area, and the unofficial Carnival beach area. Here is a pic of the store you have to go through: As we went to breakfast in the buffet again, they crew had setup the Great Towel Animal Takeover!! I was kind of disappointment that it was on a port day and not on the last day. I just snapped what I could:
  10. Day 5- Rotan, Mahogany Bay Arrival - 8am- back on and last tender - 5:30 pm We had nothing planned in this port as well. We had a leisurely breakfast and made our way down to deck 0 to exit the ship. I loved how green and luscious this place was. Here are pics of us arriving in port.
  11. I decided to do some washing and went to deck 2. It is free to wash in this particular laundromat on deck 2. The others will cost $3 to wash and $3 to dry. Once I was done, I got DS ready for bed and went down myself. Up next Mahogany Bay!
  12. I am just noticing that there are pictures in places it should not be. I apologize for that. My computer is acting crazy today.
  13. Once we were done, DS wanted to head back to the room until dinner. Once in the room, Here is our towel animal: We head the caption make an announcement that we will be experiencing heavy wind and rain. He stated that we will feel the ship list slightly to the left but should clear the channel in 30 minutes. Then all would return to normal. I headed to deck 10 to get some lemonade. Here is the rained out deck: On the starboard side, a couple of us notice that we had company in the distance: I headed back to the room to get ready for dinner in the main dinning. Here is the menu and pics: Chilled peach soup was delicious the rest of DS fried chicken, mash potatoes, and broccoli
