This was my first cruise, so I have nothing to compare it to, but my two girlfriends and I had an amazing time (we're in our 30's and 40's). We took the Carnival Victory to Nassau and Freeport. We flew in the night before and stayed at an ... Read more

I filled out the third-party survey questionnaire that Carnival sent out, but thought I'd share my 'essay' answers and observations with others. This was our first cruise so we enjoyed it immensely. For so long now, extravagant ... Read more

First, I'd like to say that I am not one to leave negative reviews (or a lot of reviews at all) and I can usually find the silver lining in just about anything. This cruise, however, was our 10th and clearly the worst one yet. I'd like to ... Read more

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

Food: Buffets: Only 2 main buffets for almost 3000 people. No wonder people were fighting over food. Burgers, Fries and Chicken wings which tasted very plain, nothing special. Cold Cuts, Pasta and some plain meat on the other ... Read more
