This is our third cruise with Carnival. I will say by far this was my favorite ship. We have sailed on the Carnival Dream and the Sunshine. The Sunshine was our least favorite. There were no seats to sit outside in the sun and it was ... Read more

The primary reason we chose this cruise was convenience; we live in the Norfolk, VA area. Though the cruise got off to an auspicious start (the ship came in several hours late due to the Harborfest celebration at Town Point Park), it ... Read more

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that this is my first cruise and I think that might make me a bit more forgiving. My husband and I chose to cruise out of Charleston because it's only an 1 1/2 hour drive from our house. This was to be our ... Read more

This was our second cruise and first on Carnival. I was a little reluctant to book because of this ship being the oldest in the fleet. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the look and feel of this fantastic ship hence the name ... Read more

I was a 1st time cruiser and the Carnival Victory did not disappoint!! Embarkation was very organized and went very smooth. The ship was beautiful and clean when we finally got on board. The staff ushered us to pool decks and had lunch ... Read more

Port of Charleston is near our home (less than 2 hrs drive) and all our previous cruises with Carnival have been great. We traveled with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson, his first cruise. We had connecting rooms that made it easy ... Read more

Embarkation: We chose this cruise because we were taking our whole family, kids and grandchildren and would be able to drive to Charleston in under 2 hours. Port of Charleston was very disappointing. It was unorganized. The AC was not ... Read more

We have cruised with Carnival many times but this is our last. They have gotten progressively worse and I will explain why. We had a family of 13 who went with us and we chose carnival because the price was right. Sometimes you get what ... Read more

our first cruise and wasn't sure about it, so chose something reasonable in price and size. We LOVED it!!! Sure want to go again and possibly get a balcony. Fell in love with Half Moon Cay- breathtaking. Nassau was nice, but prefer Half ... Read more

Great time on this older ship. We had cabin M3 (porthole) and had plenty of room. Our steward I Kommang was an absolute delight. He went above and beyond making sure that we had everything we needed. Since I bought alcohol for my room, he ... Read more

Getting on the ship was easy. I have difficulty with walking, so yes had to walk a bit. Food is fair and did not like the steakhouse, I cancelled my 2nd night. Food quality has come down a notch or two. Surprised you had to pay for ... Read more

I have never been on a Carnival cruise before, and I do not think I will cruise with this line again. We had a decent time, nothing spectacular. The cruise ship was crowded for sure, and if you wanted any sort of seat by one of the pools, ... Read more

This was our third cruise, all with Carnival, and by far our worst to date. I'll start with the good first, then get into our issues with it. First, the ship was extremely stable and motion was not an issue at all for either of us. ... Read more

We arrived at the terminal and had priority boarding due to the suite that we got. We also had "faster to the fun", which I still don't know what it does exactly. Getting on the ship and everything was easy and only took about ... Read more

After 20 Carnival Cruises I have to give the crew of the Pride top rating. The itinerary was just so-so, but we still had one of the best times ever. Our house keeper, Num, the best yet! If you do the Casino, this crew is awesome. If you ... Read more
