This is next to the coffee shop deck 5. You can start checking in here at 5pm. You can also use the app or go to the dining room. At the dining room you have to wait until 5:30. If you want a specific table or server you can request that here or at the dining room but not on the app.

If we want to specify for a table just for 4, can we do that on the app? Or do we have to go to the dining room or check-in table? 

Loving your review! Going on the Vista in May, so your review is building up some excitement for my trip!

Actually, I’ve been in far smaller rooms for a comedy show when on RCCL and NCL. Carnival has the largest of rooms with more comfy seating. It can be fairly easy to just show up and find a seat on Carnival. Not so on the other two. If you don’t have a reservation, you will not get in. I’m loving your review so far. My daughter and her family sail the Vista next January and they are trying to convince me to join. I’d love to, but with a cruise already booked and paid for on the Magic during Easter week, it will be a bit tight (financially). The Magic cruise is for our 50th Anniversary with family, but this daughter is unable to make that one (military family), so she promised her family one in January. I leave this Saturday on the Breeze. I love martinis and hope to try a few at Alchemy Bar. 🍸

 

That’s part of the reason I don’t want to try other lines. Comedy and alchemy. I wasn’t comparing the room I size to them. I’m talking between Elation, Triumph, Freedom, Breeze, Dream, Vista...Vista has the smallest.

It’s the best thing I ever packed. I’ve used it to patch up my suitcase, hang the fun times on the wall, cover up alien stickers on the wall, opt out of mail, and now to help the neigbors with their child.

After the kid next door quieted down I got a good 7 hours of sleep. Woke up once at 7am. Think it was ship movement again. 8:30 I knew I was pretty much up for good but decided to lay in bed a bit longer and not make any noise since the hallway and cabins around me were silent. I started moving around 9:30. Seems all of the cabins around me are sleeping in. Probably because they were up until after 1am this morning. I’m going to miss my virtual window and upgraded internet when I’m on Glory this summer. Hopefully they add it to all ships soon. What I did this morning uploading a YouTube video and posting it live...can’t be done on the old internet. The only time I was able

to do that was in key west using my AT&T internet.

I need to scope out the dining room. I have very specific table preferences. 

 

I'm curious to hear your table preferences! You also mentioned sleeping in - does the cruise director make a lot of announcements on the Vista?

Miguel just did a magic trick for us. He had a lady count 10 cards out of a deck and hold them against her heart. He ran his fingers through the remaining deck and she had 13 cards. He did it again and she had 20. He had her count those into stacks of 3, 7, 10 and had me pick two stacks for her to pick up. I chose 3 and 7. He handed me 3 invisible cards and had me throw them in the deck. When she counted again the 10 stack was 13. It’s stuff you see on America’s got talent.

I haven’t heard any morning announcements. When I left the room the morning show was going on and he hadn’t announced it.

I hate this. At brunch I asked for a table alone...by myself..and they tried to seat me at table for two that is 2 inches from a family at at table for 4. They put me in a perfect table yesterday and I thought they’d do the same today. It turned into a bit of a scene when I told them I didn’t want to sit there. Next time i’m going to have to be more specific.

 

This is a huge dining room and it’s less than half full. No reason they have to seat me 2 inches from a family.

That’s why I always ask for a “private table for two”. I feel like a PITA when I say it but I figure it’s better than having to say no to the table they try to sit me at or worse sit there and be annoyed the whole time.

That last one I know had rum in it. This one I know has lavender, lime, gin, and I missed the last bottle. It was another alcohol.

This looks so good. Your Alchemy bar drink pictures make me debate getting the Cheers package.

Table prefrences. Well you just saw an example at brunch. Brunch isn’t too bad as long as I’m not two inches from another table of people. 

 

Dinner is longer multiple courses. I just like to eat and get out so I can get to a bar or a show. I don’t like to talk when I’m eating. I especially don’t like being judged as a solo cruiser while I’m eating. I had that happen on freedom two years ago... never again. I’m only eating in the mdr twice here so it’s not a big deal to find a permanent table. I sat at the bar last night. 

 

On Dream Class there’s that seating that goes around that elevated section in the middle. The seating I’m talking about has a chair on one side and a booth seating on the other side. I like to get the table for two on the end so there’s only one table next to me...and I’ll request them not to seat anyone next to me for a half hour.  That’s pretty easy for them to do at 5:30. One of the things about that seating is if I look up, I’m looking at a booth seat. If I’m in the middle of the dining room it’s awkward. If you look up from your table you’re looking at another table...it’s just awkward. Like you have to look down at your table or it seems like you’re staring at people.
