We mean this in the nicest way: 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 effortless. ...

This was our third cruise, all with Carnival, and by far our worst to date. I'll start with the good first, then get into our issues with it. First, the ship was extremely stable and motion was not an issue at all for either of us. ... Read more

Just back from a 4-night cruise to the Bahamas with hubby, son, daughter-in-law, and two teenage grandsons. We had a great family vacation, and although I have been to the Bahamas several times, I enjoyed the beautiful water and the ... Read more

We decided to go on this Cruise because we had a nice long holiday weekend. However, upon boarding the boat I knew we had made a mistake. The wait staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. The boat was old, dirty and had a sewer smell the ... Read more

This was just an awesome 8 day cruise from Port Canaveral to Bermuda. The ship was very clean and the crew was always seen everywhere around the ship keeping it clean. We had a balcony cabin on the Upper deck and it was a nice size with ... Read more

Just returned from an awesome cruise to Bermuda on the Carnival Victory. This was my 11th cruise overall and my 6th cruise with Carnival. Firstly, nothing can top the Mediterranean Cruise I took in 2007 on the Carnival Freedom; which was ... Read more

I am not a huge fan of Carnival in general, and the 4-day cruise in particular is best suited to those looking for a loud party boat for a short getaway. But, I LOVE the Carnival Live concert setup, and was thrilled to see my favorite ... Read more

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

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

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

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
