Me and my husband and 17 year old son just got back from our cruise. It seems that every cruise I go on I am less and less impressed. The ship is older and it shows. Alot of corrosion and rust all over even the pool. There were alot of ... Read more

My Carnival Victory cruise over the Easter Weekend was a mixture of good and bad. The good included a spacious cabin, generally tasty food at the buffet, a nice aft pool area, and the staff in general. The bad included the cramped and ... Read more

Boarding the ship was a smooth process. Disembarkation was also easy. It took us 20 minutes to get to our car from the time our section was called. They ran ahead of schedule and the process was quick and easy. All the staff in the ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we chose a short 4 day cruise to get a feel for it. We normally vacation at resorts. Check-in was not as long as anticipated. We arrived at the ship at 12:30 and were in our room by 1:30. We found our ... Read more

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

We were initially not assigned a room until our boarding day. Our luggage tags were labeled TBA. At the airport they found our names and tagged the luggage with a room on the 9th deck. During the embarking we were given our room card on ... 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

We have been back from our cruise for about a week and I was thinking about how great the trip to Florida was. This was our fifth total cruise and our fourth one on Carnival. Compared to the other Carnival cruises it was second best one, ... Read more

First a little background. I have sailed Carnival many times and I have Gold status in their loyalty program. Unfortunately, I will not be loyal with them any more. When I first sailed with them years ago, we were impressed with the ... 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

I've tried several cruise lines and Carnival is hands-down my absolute favorite. That said, this cruise was ok. I'd like to leave a positive impression so I'll list the negative first. FOOD: Like many cruisers, we went to get a ... 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

Very good time. We had a aft balcony and it was well worth the extra expense. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of hot water with great pressure. The staff worked very hard to keep the room clean. All of the food was great, we ... Read more
