Pros: - Embarkation and debarkation were smooth and fast - Cabin was very spacious and clean - Staff was amazing and worked very hard to keep the place clean - Food was okay but formal dinner service was extremely fast - Plenty of things to do - cruise director Savannah was hilarious and wanted to be her best friend - Shows were well choreographed but I think magic/acrobatics would’ve been more entertaining - Gym facilities were great but its location in the ship was very wobbly and made running on the treadmill difficult - Comedians were hilarious Cons: - Fellow cruisers were some of the greasiest, rudest, grossest people I’ve ever encountered. Such low class and were basically every American stereotype come to life - Lines for the buffet were extremely long despite what time of day it was, and the layout of the ship made everything extra squishy. Proximity to the pools meant half the people were soaking wet and overall the lines were a huge turn off to getting food - Pools were pretty small and worn out. Did not want to go in all - The mandatory safety training before sailing away was too disorganized and personally felt it was useless. A new system is definitely needed (play on TVs in rooms?)

It sailed on my sons birthday and he only likes weekend cruises . I love carnival and went in with an open mind because some folks are just too nit picky. This is an older ship but it feels like back in the day cruising. Plus we had a great amazing deal with perks. The staff was amazing from the guest services young lady Alexandra to our cabin steward who’s name I just can’t spell. The piano bar guy Mike is a must see ! He’s phenomenal! And the one comedian on our trip ken Boyd ? Omg ! Never laughed so hard in my life ! Holly the host in the punchliner was awesome. Folks on the cruise were nice , friendly and polite. Did well on the casino as well playing black jack with Sushi. The movies at night on lido were excellent choices as well with popcorn to munch on. Had a fanstastic time . Oh and let me tell you our beds in cabin 9228 were the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in on a ship. Knocked out immediately and the temp in the room was perfect MDR was good . One night my food was cold but I told the waiter and he got me a fresh dish warm and post haste . Best breakfast ever is a breakfast burrito from the blue iguana! Had that twice ! The shows in the theater ? Someone needs to hire a pro and teach these poor folks how to dance. It was bad ! I’ve never walked out on a show but ? Again piano bar , comedian and the bands that played next to the casino were amazing ! Read Less

If you're looking for a cruise with nonstop fun, Carnival does just that for you. My boyfriend and I cruised Jan. 11th-14th and it was my boyfriend's first cruise. He's never been very interested in cruising before but after this fun 3-day cruise, he already wants to book his next. Embarkation was very easy and quick and we left our luggage with the guys at the port so once we got on the ship we went straight to Cantina and had some deliciousss tacos! The fun began with the Sail Away party which was SO much fun and they had a special on margarita pitchers so... enough said. Food was great, music was great, very upset that we didn't get lobster on elegant night 'cause let's face it, Carnival can afford it and we are paying for it and for past cruisers, WE KNOW YOU USED TO OFFER IT SO..... I'd like to make a special shout-out to our room attendant Johnny from Peru. He was awesome, so attentive, and always ready to help us with anything we needed. Also, the guys from the restaurant were so sweet and patient and helped us make great selections. I, unfortunately, forgot their names but they were a wonderful group from Singapore and Iran. The cabin was very nice and clean, I really liked it, the bed was so comfortable and there are automatic lights that turn on when your feet hit the floor in case you need to use the bathroom late at night. The entertainment on board was awesome, the performance at dinner was hilarious and the shows at the theatre they have is SPECTACULAR! One thing I didn't like was that on Deck 8 there was a weird mildew smell by the elevators and constant smell of weed which surprised me being that the rooms are always being cleaned and I figured by the end of the first day they'd nip that in the bud quick. Also, they only have four of those private bed things on the Serenity Deck and I feel they could add a few more of those!! I don't think I would do Victory again only because I'd like to explore other ships but for anyone who hasn't ever gone, I'd definitely recommend. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we found $40 airfare from Hartford to Fort Lauderdale and the cruise dates fit right in. We got a balcony rate of $278 due to some previous cruis gambling. Our room number was 6351. Very noisy at night when there was a band in the lobby. Otherwise it was pretty quiet. We loved the ship and all its amenities and spent a lot of time in the casino. I was invited to leave each of the nights because they were closing. We did very well and covered our bill. I could not get accustom to the food however and it really bothered me. Everyone else on board were clearly loving the food so as usual it was me. Our room was great our steward was excellent as was the whole crew. We stayed onboard in Nassau because we were there last October and had no desire to go back. We just wanted to cruise. I can fully recommend the Victory. We had a great time and would choose the Victory again. Read Less

This was a great time and great memories!! Food was good, entertainment was good! Ship was clean, staff was friendly!! It did get crowded on at sea day but there was places to go that wasn't so crowded. We got up early every day and walked the ship when it was quite. Truly a great trip! This was my parents first trip and they loved it. Dinner was very good in the dining room. Lunch could get crowded on the lido deck but we would have a cocktail and wait the crowd out. On Nassau we did a Segway rides and it was awesome!! Worth every penny and so much fun, our guides were fantastic!!!! We got the cheers drink package and that was worth it as well, we saved money doing it that way. My parents and I would defiantly do Carnival again, it was great trip and we enjoyed it! Read Less

We chose this cruise "by default" because there was no other choices for the budget we had. Although the cruiseship was showing a bit of wear and tear and our cabin was old (they have refurbished the cabins since), we had a great time and had so much fun. I did wish I had booked a room that wasn't mid-ship because there was noise in the hallways on the first night... The staff and crew members were all so nice and efficient and to our surprise, the food was fantastic. We ate at Chopsticks and Pizza Pirate every single day. The food in the MDR was also pretty good. We loved the show Vrooom and we tried not to miss the comedy shows. Overall, the cruise was an excellent value for the price we paid. We are already booked for another cruise on the Victory (I was told that it's going to be a Funship 2.0 when we go back... Can't wait!) Read Less
