I chose this cruise for a quick, inexpensive getaway and it absolutely covered all of the bases. We flew into Ft. Lauderdale and stayed Sunday night at the Best Western airport/cruiseport there. The hotel had free airport shuttle which was ... 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

My fiancée and I booked this quick trip from Miami to Nassau to get away from the cold Minnesota weather in December. We cruised last New Years on the Carnival Ecstasy (I believe the oldest and smallest Carnival ships) so my ... Read more

My wife and I went on this cruise. This is our 17 cruise overall and with Carnival our 6th. Carnival at Port Canaveral is an excellent port. It is so easy to drive to. They are very efficient at boarding and disembarking. Incredibly ... Read more

To sum up my review of this cruise in only 150 words is merely impossible. My experience with Carnival Victory ruined my cruise experience and has left me highly disappointed in the experience I thought I would get. To sum my trip, here's ... Read more

We live in Central Florida, Port Canaveral is the only port we've cruised out of in 8 cruises. Embarkation is such a pleasant experience, as is disembarkation.... We sailed on the Carnival Victory for the 1st time. Past cruises were 4 ... Read more

I went on this cruise as an office retreat. Let's just say if this was the first cruise I'd ever gone on I'd never cruise again! Disembarking was not good we were supposed to board at 12:30 we didn't get on the boat until after 1:30. The ... Read more

We set sail on the Victory! We wanted to celebrate 2 special birthdays. What a great time and the staff helped make it extra special. Our 16 yr old totally enjoyed himself. He enjoyed himself at the teen center (said he was not going ... Read more

Getting on the ship was delayed but the staff made us fairly comfortable. I've been on 23 cruises and this time it only took us less than 30 minutes to disembark and get from our cabin to our car. We had been on this ship 3 years ago and ... Read more

We had a group of 13 people from ages 4-54 & we all had a great time! I read plenty of reviews before we left about Victory & was a little worried. There are several comments on here about Victory being an older ship but we didn't ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of price. We were a little strapped for money this year. I wish we never went.... What a waste. The only thing good about the trip was getting off the boat to go to the beach for a day. I have two ... Read more

I've been cruising for some time now and after my last cruise with Carnival I vowed "never again." Well, we got suckered into a time share spiel and it came with a "free cruise" so, here we are. Carnival obviously ... Read more

My husband had never cruised before so I wanted a shorter cruise. We live close to Port Canaveral, so it was convenient for travel. We had a balcony cabin on the Lido deck. It was a great location. We never heard noise from the pool. ... Read more

I just needed a short get away. Plus I just wanted to celebrate my birthday differently. I am still not sure if I like the American Table. There was no lobster because it was a short cruise, but that is not an issue for me. I am not ... Read more

Staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great overall. Enjoyed both comedians, however found no other activities or events desirable or enjoyable. The Promenade Deck 5 was basically a smoking lounge and I found it hard to spend ... Read more

It was my first time on a cruise and it was everything I was expecting and more. The ship may need some updates especially in the cabins but it looks like they are planning on doing that soon. Food was great, nice selection at the ... Read more

This was my and my wife's second cruise ever, both this year! The first was on the Emerald Princess, so it was interesting to see the different focus of different lines. Princess is a lot more traditional and old-school - even their ships ... Read more

This was a post-"Vista in the Mediterranean" wind down cruise. Med cruise was very port intensive with lots of early waking up and miles of walking each day. This was to be a relaxation cruise. Relaxing is what it was. Wife ... Read more
