We chose this cruise as a getaway between Christmas and New Years. We have cruised on Carnival, almost all ships, Celebrity, Royal C, many times, Disney and Costa. I agree with a previous review, I need to defend the Victory. Carnival ... Read more

This was the first cruise I had ever been on. Let me start by telling you I had to pay double because I was a single cruiser, so I paid $1800.00, I had room #6221 on Level 6. The room was adequate with a balcony, however, I was only ... Read more

We just wanted a 3 night cruise over Christmas, as we are snowbirds in FL anyway. This is our 3rd time on Victory in the last 4 years, not on purpose, BTW. We always get a balcony room, so we can enjoy peace and quiet. We really enjoyed ... Read more

We chose the ship solely based on dates, length, itinerary, departure port. This ship was our only choice, we have friends who have sailed on Carnival (as had I in 1991) so off we went. In fairness, before my comments below, fellow ... Read more

Victory pulled what I had heard of this ship in other reviews: The night before we were contacted via email that our onboard time would be two hours later. Lucky for us, we got late checkout at the hotel and arrived at the appear at the ... Read more

I chose this cruise for a quick, inexpensive getaway and it absolutely covered all of the bases. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale and stayed Sunday night at the Best Western airport/cruiseport there. The hotel had free airport shuttle which was ... Read more

We did this cruise as our first (probably of many) child free cruise. We had a glitch at the beginning because nobody could access our room. It took until 4:30 (we first tried at 1:30) to get everything resolved. The room Steward ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the price was very reasonable. We were a little leery after reading so many negative reviews, but our experience was a good one. We were late boarding and leaving port, because they are remodeling the rooms on ... Read more

My fiancée and I booked this quick trip from Miami to Nassau to get away from the cold Minnesota weather in December. We cruised last New Years on the Carnival Ecstasy (I believe the oldest and smallest Carnival ships) so my ... Read more

Wife wanted to go on her first cruise. So we decided to split the vacation. Sort cruise out of Miami then some time down in the Keys. Cruise started out bad with long 4 hour delay with everyone stuck in the port waiting building. Not ... Read more

My wife and I went on this cruise. This is our 17 cruise overall and with Carnival our 6th. Carnival at Port Canaveral is an excellent port. It is so easy to drive to. They are very efficient at boarding and disembarking. Incredibly ... Read more

To sum up my review of this cruise in only 150 words is merely impossible. My experience with Carnival Victory ruined my cruise experience and has left me highly disappointed in the experience I thought I would get. To sum my trip, here's ... Read more

I went on this cruise as an office retreat. Let's just say if this was the first cruise I'd ever gone on I'd never cruise again! Disembarking was not good we were supposed to board at 12:30 we didn't get on the boat until after 1:30. The ... 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 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
