This is my 8th cruise and we love Carnival. It truly lives up to its motto of being the Funship. For all the naysayers that the Victory is outdated and dirty and staff unfriendly and miserable, I'm not sure we were on the same ship. We ... Read more

We were looking for a quick getaway and the Carnival Victory seemed to check off all the boxes. I must admit we set our expectations low based upon some of the reviews we had seen. But we were VERY pleasantly surprised. We purchased the ... Read more

This cruise was the worse one that we have been on. We had to wait over 3 hours to be served for dinner, we constantly smelled sewage, and the rooms were not cleaned. At one point I asked one of the cabin stewards for a cup to use for ... Read more

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
