We chose to go on this ship for a few different reasons. First, it comes out of Miami, where we live. Also, we liked the idea of traveling on a new ship. We have been on Carnival before and we really enjoyed past experiences on the ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I was told to check out Carnival's line. We choose Victory primarily because of dates and it was going to Cozumel which I'd always wanted to go to. I was advised to purchase FTTF. So glad I did. While our ... Read more

We chose this ship for our 30th anniversary. We had an aft balcony which was fabulous, I could sit out there all day. Only bad thing is we didn't get much sun because the floor above us came out past our balcony. If you want more sun go to ... Read more

I would like to say that I love Carnival Cruise line and love their ships but this cruise was an all time fail. Had it not been for the wonderful cruise directors, Chris the flying scotsman, and the awesome ports, this would have been one ... Read more

My husband and I have been a many cruises with Carnival. For the most part we have given most of those cruises an 8-9 out of 10. We recently came back from a cruise on the new Vista, and were very disappointed with the cruise overall, and ... Read more

There were 12 of us from 11-72 that went on this cruise, both family and friends. Six of us flew from Atlanta to Miami and the other six from Chicago to Miami. The trip did not start out very well but it was really our fault. The six of ... Read more

Love, love the Serenity deck. I just wish there were more umbrellas. There was adequate attention from the bar staff and the hot tubs were great. Never had any trouble with people trying to have their kids there as I've heard before. ... Read more

We have been on 30 cruises over 4 different lines and are now Platinum on Carnival. We booked this in spite of the shaky reviews as we got a great deal on our annual kids free cruise. Embarkation took 15 minutes, as easy as it can ... Read more

I was excited to experience the newest ship in the Carnival line but then I experienced a few bumps. Embarkation for us was fast and easy. We registered online so we carried our printed out boarding pass and literally went directly to ... Read more

We chose the Glory because the sail date fit our schedule. Overall it was a nice ship. Our balcony room would have been excellent if the AC worked. We couldn't open our curtain or the room would be unbearable. Below are a few ... Read more

We took this cruise as a graduation present to our daughter, and she was not disappointed, nor were we! So much to do, so much to see. An experience we are not likely to forget! The shore excursions were well worth the time and money, the ... Read more

I read horrible comments about embarkation & disembarkation. We did not have the faster to fun pass and have no complaint about the process. We arrived earlier then our check in time of 2-2:30. We arrived at 1 and were on the ship with ... Read more

Overall it was another great cruise for my husband and me. Relaxing, plenty to do, wonderful food to eat, good entertainment, good service, and casino fun, too. I will admit that the balcony rooms were a little bit smaller than we were ... Read more

We sailed on the Glory in 2016 and picked it again in 2017, same week. What happened to the Glory in a year? The food was horrible. We resorted to pb&j at midnight in the cabin. The dining room food was not as good as last year at ... Read more

We wanted to try the newest ship in the fleet. I think they tried to squeeze too much on the ship and compromised quality and space. The show room had good intentions of mobility of seats, but they gave up the visibility for many people. ... Read more

We had a great time on the cruise. The ship had a lot to offer. I thought the food choices were the best of any other cruise I had been on. Lots of healthy food choices and the stations were spread out so as to not have everyone at the ... Read more
