Ok...it is an older ship and could use some modernization, but then the price of the cruise would go up as well. Honestly, I like the Victory and would go back anytime. We flew in to Miami and they let us on the ship at 11:30. Lunch was ... Read more

Where do I begin. The embarkation process was long. It took almost a hour to get onto the boat. Once on the boat, we went to lunch. A friend that is allergic to tomato's asked for condiments without tomato's. The cook jut removed the ... Read more

I can no longer try to convince people that the food on Carnival ships is good. The food everywhere on this boat was terrible! I am usually not too particular when it comes to food, especially when on a ship, but this was inedible. They ... Read more

I have been on many cruises. Amber Cove is not ready. There were only a few stores open and they had very little stock. This was my second cruise on the Victory. If this had been my first cruise, it would have been my last. Thankfully ... Read more

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

I've experienced over a dozen cruises on a handful of mass-market cruise lines, and if I've learned anything, it's to do my homework so I know what to expect. It reduces the chance of unpleasant surprises and helps me plan for an enjoyable ... 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

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
