This was my first cruise so nothing else to compare it to, but it was an amazing trip! Pulling into the harbor at Nassau and seeing that beautiful blue water took my breath away. Went to Atlantis on Discover Tour of the aquariums and it ... Read more

Placed us (2 Senior Citizens next to 4 rooms filled with loud obnoxious Grads. Slammed their doors and ran through the halls. Had too call security twice. Nothing accomplished and they did not offer to change our cabin. I asked one of the ... Read more

The cruise fitted in with the timing of our holiday in USA and was during our time in Florida. Our OV cabin on deck 1 was clean and comfortable and close enough to the lifts for convenience but far enough away for noise reduction. The ... Read more

I am a longstanding VIFP Club member but this ship was the worse I have seen. The suite 1233 had the wallpaper pealing and the desk laminate was peeling also. The small analog TV was to small and distorted to watch. These items were fixed ... Read more

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

Victory is in serious need of Updates! I'll start by saying we cruise often; and this is only 2nd bad cruise review I have had. Our stateroom was a Balcony stateroom on deck 8. Our first glance at our stateroom revealed an old ... Read more

We left from Port Canaveral on Thursday morning. We got to the Port about 10:15 a.m. and parked at the port. Parking was easy and literally at the ship. Perfect way to start a vacation. We had booked Faster to the Fun and there was no ... 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 The ship was showing her age, considering some very outdated décor and rust.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

We chose this cruise because it matched our available dates. Our room was ex excellent. So was embarkation and debarkation. Other than that the food was horrible and staff was rude. We ate dinner in the dining room each evening and ... Read more

I was pleasantly surprised with this cruise. I had only cruised Carnival once before, in 1999 and swore I would never do it again. However, the price of a balcony cabin was too hard to dismiss. Embarkation: We went for the Faster To The ... Read more

This was our 5th Cruise with Carnival - 2nd time on the Victory (1st time was 6 years ago) - just the 2 of us this time - no kids to worry about. We did Faster 2 the Fun, we have found this to be worth the $50 - you get priority boarding, ... 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

We went out of Port Canaveral on a 4 day to Nassau and Freeport on the Carnival Victory. We really like this port because it is easy to get to since we drive from North Georgia and the port itself is easy to navigate. We stay the night ... 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

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
