This was our first time cruising and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff made our embarkation and disembarkation very easy! Our cabin was on the 6th deck, with a balcony and was cozy and comfortable and the staff kept it clean and ... Read more

I will start by saying that I am a seasoned cruiser. And I have to agree with others that the Sensation is an old and tired ship. We Thought the crew was fantastic. And we also thought the food was very good. But the ship itself is not a ... Read more

What a fantastic cruise to take. The service on this cruise was the best I have experienced thus far. Our room stewardess, Esperanza, was fantastic and made a point to seek us out on the first day of the cruise and learned our names. ... Read more

This cruise is good value for money and a great way to get a taste of the Bahamas. However, it came across as a budget cruise line with queues in the Lido buffet especially for breakfast, and slightly limited food options and poor ... Read more

We choose this cruise due to the dates we could travel. We heard from friends and seeing other reviews it should have been a great trip. It wasn't. The ship itself was nice. The stewards, bartenders and waiters etc. were excellent. The ... Read more

We set sail on the Victory! We wanted to celebrate 2 special birthdays. What a great time and the staff helped make it extra special. Our 16 yr old totally enjoyed himself. He enjoyed himself at the teen center (said he was not going ... Read more

Being the (somewhat spoiled) child of a woman who loves going on cruises, I have gone on about 15 of them, including Carnival's Paradise, Fantasy, and Ecstasy. On this particular trip, I went with my girlfriend. She's never been on a ... Read more

Getting on the ship was delayed but the staff made us fairly comfortable. I've been on 23 cruises and this time it only took us less than 30 minutes to disembark and get from our cabin to our car. We had been on this ship 3 years ago and ... Read more

We had a group of 13 people from ages 4-54 & we all had a great time! I read plenty of reviews before we left about Victory & was a little worried. There are several comments on here about Victory being an older ship but we didn't ... Read more

Loved the cruise and crew. The only disappointment was the food wasn't as good as my first cruise in 2008. Not a deal breaker as I have already booked the elation for 2017. We loved Spike Davis, Hasbro Game show, and Kevin was fun! We have ... Read more

On a larger ship with better ports of call, this could easily have been a 5. The staff were excellent, as usual, and made the best of our Hurricane Matthew experience. It was nice to see Key West on the first day, but it doesn't seem ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of price. We were a little strapped for money this year. I wish we never went.... What a waste. The only thing good about the trip was getting off the boat to go to the beach for a day. I have two ... Read more

I've cruised Carnival 6 times. The last cruise was a horrible experience and will be the last. Carnival has increasingly pinched pennies over the last decade to increase their profit margins and it's more evident now than ever. They sale ... Read more

First, let me begin by saying we have never sailed with Carnival Cruise Lines before due to all the negative and horror stories the media hypes up. However, looking for a change of pace from sailing with RC, Norwegian, Celebrity, and ... Read more

We have cruised on most of the popular cruise lines, and hadn't been on Carnival for a couple of years, so we decided to try the Pride out of Baltimore as it was the closest port to our home near Pittsburgh. Earlier this summer, we had ... Read more

I've been cruising for some time now and after my last cruise with Carnival I vowed "never again." Well, we got suckered into a time share spiel and it came with a "free cruise" so, here we are. Carnival obviously ... Read more
