We mean this in the nicest way: The 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory has a comfortable worn-in feel. The overall operation, much like the captain's daily weather and navigation briefings, comes off as ...

The ship had WAY too many people on it. Imagine a shopping mall on Black Friday with a Free Gift and you can compare that to the sheer magnitude of guests on a Carnival Cruise. It is ALL ABOUT GETTING YOUR MONEY! Not some, they want ... Read more

You're going to see the three circles and think "They really didn't like this cruise." In fact, we loved almost every minute of it! We would do this same cruise, on this same ship, with this same crew, all over again. But, we ... Read more

Ok...it is an older ship and could use some modernization, but then the price of the cruise would go up as well. Honestly, I like the Victory and would go back anytime. We flew in to Miami and they let us on the ship at 11:30. Lunch was ... Read more

I can no longer try to convince people that the food on Carnival ships is good. The food everywhere on this boat was terrible! I am usually not too particular when it comes to food, especially when on a ship, but this was inedible. They ... Read more
