In a nutshell, this was a really nice cruise - food, cleanliness, service, FUN; I don't know what it is people complain about, maybe I'm just lucky and continue to get good cruises on Carnival. The only reason I give this 4 out of 5 is ... Read more

I picked this cruise because it sailed on my husband's birthday and was coming out of Cape Canaveral. Getting through the port was easy and we were signed in and on the ship in less than 1/2 hour. Deck #9 (Lido deck) was where the main ... Read more

We chose this cruise for a quick getaway with family. The ship was showing her age, considering some very outdated décor and rust. The signature whale fin funnel needed some serious cleaning. Embarkation was a little slow let to ... Read more

From some of the reviews I read, I was very worried that the ship was going to be a huge disappointment. It was just the opposite. It only took about 30 minutes to board, and our stateroom was ready as soon as we got on the ship, at 1:30. ... Read more

This was only our second cruise so we don't have a lot of comparison, but we did note a few things. Embarkation was extremely easy and fast.....much better than our last experience in Baltimore. Once on the boat it was chaotic, which I ... Read more

Me and my husband and 17 year old son just got back from our cruise. It seems that every cruise I go on I am less and less impressed. The ship is older and it shows. Alot of corrosion and rust all over even the pool. There were alot of ... Read more

My Carnival Victory cruise over the Easter Weekend was a mixture of good and bad. The good included a spacious cabin, generally tasty food at the buffet, a nice aft pool area, and the staff in general. The bad included the cramped and ... Read more

Boarding the ship was a smooth process. Disembarkation was also easy. It took us 20 minutes to get to our car from the time our section was called. They ran ahead of schedule and the process was quick and easy. All the staff in the ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we chose a short 4 day cruise to get a feel for it. We normally vacation at resorts. Check-in was not as long as anticipated. We arrived at the ship at 12:30 and were in our room by 1:30. We found our ... Read more

This was my first cruise, so I have nothing to compare it to, but my two girlfriends and I had an amazing time (we're in our 30's and 40's). We took the Carnival Victory to Nassau and Freeport. We flew in the night before and stayed at an ... Read more

I filled out the third-party survey questionnaire that Carnival sent out, but thought I'd share my 'essay' answers and observations with others. This was our first cruise so we enjoyed it immensely. For so long now, extravagant ... Read more

First, I'd like to say that I am not one to leave negative reviews (or a lot of reviews at all) and I can usually find the silver lining in just about anything. This cruise, however, was our 10th and clearly the worst one yet. I'd like to ... Read more
