The Carnival Victory was a disappointment from the time we got on board. There were major mechanical problem. Four of the 6 hot tubs were not in working order, the food was mediocre at best and the service was terrible. You have to pay $20 extra for filet or lobster tail. so it is not really all inclusive.The ship was in dry dock for almost 3 weeks prior to our cruise, You would expect things to be in tip top shape. Many of the public rest rooms were out of service and the ones that were open were filthy. When I tried to talk to guest services regarding my concerns - I was told to call 1-800-Carnival when I got home!! The on board entertainment was good. Only bright spot on the cruise. Embarkation was a nightmare because the ship was not ready at the scheduled time. Even though the ship had an over haul it is still dated. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted a short cruise and wanted to try the Galveston Port. We lucked out because the Cruise Director Frankie was fantastic. The ship was clean, staff were super friendly, and there was a general fun, relaxed atmosphere the whole time. We are experienced cruisers and so we have high expectations for the fun factor but this cruise met all of them. Each day provided fun entertainment both during the day and at night. Also, the food was delicious - loads of fresh fruits and vegetables and also amazing desserts. The music was also a highlight - there were country bands, and also fun 70s and 80s music. The dancing and shows were excellent. There was the usual Hairy Chest contest and also the Love & Marriage classic Carnival show and interactive shows. We found it to be a really fun experience and would definitely cruise with Carnival again! Read Less
