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

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 ... 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

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
