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

My friends and I chose this cruise because of the short length and for it falling perfectly on my birthday weekend! The embarkation was smooth, we were all so excited I don't think I would've noticed if it wasn't. We only waited maybe an ... Read more

I have always enjoyed cruising with Carnival but this last trip has me questioning my loyalty to them. It appears that Carnival changed their standard of "house keeping" of their boats. Our Stateroom was a balcony room and we ... Read more

We had many disappointments with this cruise. Our cabin was not on the port side when docking at our destinations as we were told that they would be. We found chewed bubble gum in the end of a straw of a drink that was served to us. ... Read more

We cruise to be able to get away from everything and not have the phone ringing constantly, so in that aspect the cruise was excellent. However we just had the feeling during this cruise that Carnival was trying to cut so many costs ... Read more

We just got back from 4 day cruise to Bahamas out of Port Canaveral on the Victory. We had a WONDERFUL vacation. I must say was a little nervous about sailing on the victory reading so many negative comments on different forums. I am not ... Read more

This was a great cruise for us; we were part of a large group. This was my 7th cruise; all our cruises have been on Carnival; Fantasy Class, Sensation and Conquest Class. There seem to be a lot of mixed opinions on this ship. We found ... Read more

Just a get a way for the wife and myself, what a great time we had. We booked on short notice, less than two weeks before setting sail, got a nice room on the bow of the ship just below the bridge, and had a semi private deck, not known ... Read more

We typically sail on other cruiselines but thought we'd give Carnival a try based on recommendations from co-workers and friends. We were looking for a short family get-away before our kids (17,13, 6) returned to school. NEVER did we ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the size of the ship, one of the largest ships doing a short itinerary. The date we required happened to be the cheapest of the year. This was my 7th time on Carnival and i am now questioning my ... Read more

We were on this trip as an annual birthday celebration with friends. This ship is older, which we knew but we expected it to be clean - it is in need of a deep cleaning. Our balcony room and balcony were dirty - cigarette butts on balcony, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for 1) price of balcony room, 2) length of cruise, and 3) port. We booked online, without selecting a particular room, just a balcony. Was surprised when finally received our room number, it had an extended balcony ... Read more

We wanted to give Carnival another chance and they disappointed again. Like many, we had started out as Carnival customers and really enjoyed our first couple of cruises. Over time, we started to see a decline in service, food and ... Read more
