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 The entertainment was outdated and geared more for the older crowd.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 ...
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 ...
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.
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, ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
I traveled with my husband and two children ages 12 and 9. We took this 3 night cruise to test the waters ( pardon the pun ..lol) We had a wonderful experience. The food was great. The service was great! The cabin was great! The ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Embarkation: As the Victory’s cabins are getting a facelift, we (my mom and myself-I’m 29, you can do some approximate math on Mom) received the expected but disappointing email a few days in advance notifying us that our check ...
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 ...
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 ...
We chose this cruise because we wanted another short break and our experience on the Carnival Paradise cruise was great for a first cruise for my daughter and myself. We were however disappointed that robes were not provided in our cabin ...
I just returned from a quick trip aboard Carnival Victory, and figured I would toss in my two cents on that particular ship, so if anyone is interested in a review, here ya go!
We boarded and left late due to the need to stock the ship ...
Ship MS Carnival Victory
I am a gold member on Carnival so I obviously have been on several cruises. Just some thoughts on our experience for your consideration - you decide for yourself.
This is the ...
I was planning to celebrate my wife's birthday at cruise, and it was beyond expectation.
Its life long memories for us.
Really happy with Carnival staff service,
especially housekeeping and dining.
Food - Food was awesome, I ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
I sailed on this cruise last Christmas, and decided to sail this year again. This was my 29th cruise, and 5th time on the Victory. We live 30 minutes away from The Port of Miami.
Embarkation-I received an email that they wouldn't ...
