Sorry - you cannot bring liquour or beer on board. Only wine and champagne. If you want liqour for consumpation in your cabin, you can order it through Ship's Services
HAL no longer has kiddie pools for the younger set. They have closed the ones they had on the other ships due to health regulations. I don't think the Vista ships ever had the splash pools. Babies/children in diapers are not allowed in the other pools. Sorry.
The last time we were aboard an HAL ship was 2 years ago. At that time you could purchase bottles of liquor aboard at a fairly reasonable price for consumption in your room. Don't know if they still allow hat or not. All the lines are pretty strict about bringing your own aboard these dasy because they make a ton of money selling us drinks.

we will be traveling with 2 teenagers both 15 ! hopefully there will be other kids their age on board since this is fall break for us in Florida
