From the moment we stepped onto the ship the fun started. I should start by saying that the ship was in top condition. It was very clean, and everything was working. Our room was spotless and ready for us. There was something to do ... Read more

The ship itself was nice, but looking rather old. The people working on the ship were excellent. I would have liked to see staff working at the actual pools because unfortunately some parents just let their children go with no ... Read more

After reading many bad and some good reviews of this ship (Elation), I was determined to be open minded going into this cruise. I chose this cruise/ship because it was a fairly close port for us to drive to and the dates fit our Summer ... Read more

This is my 8th cruise and we love Carnival. It truly lives up to its motto of being the Funship. For all the naysayers that the Victory is outdated and dirty and staff unfriendly and miserable, I'm not sure we were on the same ship. We ... Read more

This was our first cruise, but definitely not our last! We chose to visit Bahamas and sailed on the Valor, an amazing ship that had a recent upgrade, met all our expectations, and exceeded in a few. The staff could always be seen catering ... Read more
