This was my 10th cruise overall - 6th with Carnival. I would say that over that time I have been able to set a bar of expectations for a cruise that I feel should be met. And I have to say that this trip came up short. I was traveling with ... Read more

First let me start with embarkation. The lines were extremely long and maybe an hour or a little longer to board the ship. I have never experience such long lines to get on the ship. They were so busy and understaffed that we didn't get to ... Read more

Just a couple little bits about a quick cruise out of Miami. We had a good time. The best thing was kissing a stingray. The reef was bad, but the rays were fantastic! The food was not as good as Princess. It wasn't bad, just not as good. ... Read more

Over all, we had an okay time. We've had better and worse. First things first, If you HATE cigarette smoke, DO NOT BOOK THIS CRUISE. You will be HIGHLY disappointed. I have been on over 20 cruises and I'm VIP with Carnival and I have ... Read more

This was my third cruise, and my first with Carnival. For us, we chose this based on the sail date, the price, and the number of nights. It was a good value. As others have noted, the Victory ship is one of Carnival's smallest in their ... Read more

This was our 43rd cruise, so we should have some experience in judging what is good and what is bad. The Carnival Victory scores very well in all the important areas! Embarkation was quick and efficient. The greeting we received onboard ... Read more

Victory We arrived into MIA at 9:00am. Took a cab. It's a flat rate of $28.00. Best way to get to the port of Miami. If you're less them 6 people it's better pricing then a shared bus. I purchased a hop on hop off bus tour on Big ... Read more

Built in 2000, the ship is truly showing its age, like a tired old Las Vegas hotel that has seen its day and made its every dollar. The ship smells musty and like cigarette smoke everywhere you go.I booked a junior suite (front top ... Read more
