AVOID AT ALL COSTS, AT LEAST FOR A WHILE!

This cruise was supposed to be a special occasion for us but instead it wound up being our worst cruise ever. We were coming off of an NCL cruise in Miami and just had to walk down the dock to get to the ...

Mature, Empty Nesters on Anniversary Cruise (Virgin Cruisers)

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 ...

Great Itinerary, Entertainment, and Food, but Lacking in Other Areas

Overcrowded, Overpriced, Overhyped

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 ...

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 ...
