First time with Carnival and was I looking for mini vacation for a specific date so unfortunately this was the only cruise available within my time frame, and the itinerary was ok, the ship decor was tacky, the fellow cruisers seemed to be ... Read more

We had faster to the fun, so we boarded early. The fun started immediately. The drinks were awesome, the food was great, the service was excellent. If you don't enjoy yourself...you just were not trying. The shows were so much fun from ... Read more

I have been on a few other Carnival Ships and I must say this was my least favorite. We were in cabin 8401 which I knew might be a bit loud. But I found it louder than I thought. It would sound as if people were walking in our cabin as ... Read more

I was between three and four stars (circles lol) We have cruised to the ports on this cruise before but like both of them. In addition wanted to see Jay Leno. Trying to get good tickets in the Ct Casino where he appears at times isn't easy ... Read more

We got a really good VIFP club price on this cruise, and we wanted to do something for our anniversary, so we decided to do this cruise. We weren't happy with our last Carnival cruise on the Magic, so we didn't really have high ... Read more

Just returned from 3 day Bahamian trip on Victory. 1. Various areas on board smells of sewage, particularly on Promenade and Lido decks. 2. Steward cleaned room once. Body wash dispenser in shower started off almost empty and was ... Read more

I needed a solo getaway and this was the cheapest cruise I could find. As you can guess, my expectations were low. I was mostly pleasantly surprised. My cabin had recently been redone and the bed was comfy. I wasn't into the entertainment ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to the sailing dates and the ports of call. I liked the ship, but it carried a horrid sewage smell throughout the entire cruise. The entertainment was outdated and geared more for the older crowd. I would not ... Read more

I booked this cruise along with one of my friends and their family members. This was actually my second time cruising, but my first cruise with Carnival. My overall trip was okay, but it definitely wasn't that great for me to want to ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the dates available and the destinations. It was a first cruise for my son and 2 grandsons. Between the pools, water slide and the Circle C club, the 12 and 13 year old cousins found plenty to do on board. ... Read more

This was my very first trip on Carnival and possibly my last. I was told to try other Carnival ships before avoiding them all together but I don't know if I want the hassle. The people and vibe on the ship was great, but...... First off, ... Read more

Wanted to go on a short cruise to visit a Key West and Cozumel. Weather was superb for this 4 day cruise. Cruisers were nice. Deck party was lively however Carnival doesn't serve any carvings of fruit or food anymore for their deck party ... Read more

I know carnival is a cheaper line, but I did cruise on carnival about 5 years ago and have seen a big difference. I think it is due to the people that cruise on their ships. We have been on Celebrity and RCI and seen big differences. ... Read more

Having sailed with Royal Caribbean and Norwegian many times before, we tried to book a last minute cruise during spring break but could not find a cabin that would accommodate 2 adults and a child. With Carnival being the last/only option ... Read more

I've been on many CCL cruises. I always loved the Breeze. My son and I took this cruise for 4 days. Worked out perfect for his spring break. What a great time. Our cabin was a Balcony 8405. Great location, and a month ago they ... Read more

Good value for the money. We got an email the day before the cruise that ship would be boarding and departing late due to loading of materials. Boarding wouldn't begin until 1:30pm and departure wasn't until 6pm. We were also notified ... Read more

This was the worst and the best of cruising on Carnival. First, PLEASE believe me that I always go into every situation hoping for the best but...somehow, some way or someone turns my attitude sour. From the beginning when I got that ... Read more

Ship was ok, food was mediocre, hospitality was good. Ship needs repairs and windows cleaned. This was my first Carnival cruise. I have cruised RCCL twice before and will choose them over Carnival next time. Carnival was not bad but I ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had a very narrow date range. It was the worst cruise vacation ever. We have cruised before on other cruise lines and had a wonderful experience. I wish I could get my week back. There were no ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise as we wanted to visit key west, whilst visiting Miami. I must admit, we had fairly low expectations . Having cruised 20+ times before, I had not expected the victory to live up to the premium cruise ... Read more

Before I begin I should put in a disclaimer that I did not really care so much about what cruise I was sailing on this time as my main intent was to meet up with some very good friends we hadn't seen in a while and friends of whom had ... Read more
