this is my 6 cruise and I have to said is the worst cruise ever, from the overall lack of cleanliness in the hallways, personal cabin, all restaurants and all areas around the cruise, dirty windows everywhere, sewage smell around the hallways, elevators and bars, , food is mediocre as best, terrible, always cold, no flavor at all, taste frozen, overcooked and re use , awful presentation, this goes for the buffet and sit down dinners, not to much interaction from the overall staff, slow service in all areas, lack of supervision or presence from either chefs, front of the house managers, officers etc checking the product, no sense of security, I report every night noisy neighbors in other cabins screaming and fighting each night and no one came to check on it, it was too many problems in the cruise with people misbehaving, bad language, screaming and no security was around to take control of the situation, I felt that I was in a wrong place all the time, no standards established at the sit down restaurant for people dressing in the main rooms, I saw people in tank tops, sandals, broken shorts and they let them eat there, people doing karaoke in their tables during dinner, making the ambience uncomfortable, I definitive will avoid Carnival Cruises moving forward and I strongly suggest to avoid this specific cruise Victory for a good , safe , relax vacation Read Less

I surprised my husband for his birthday and booked the Victory (Stateroom 6202) for it's May 14 2018 sailing. It had been three years since we last cruised but a well needed vacation. Embarkation from the Port of Miami was okay. They never showed us where our luggage was supposed to go to be checked so we unfortunately had to carry our bags onboard. Not Carnival's problem but better signage and attentive workers at the port are more to blame for that. The ship in my opinion does not show its age. It could use better/updated signage on the 3rd floor where guest services is because the lighted signs are hard to read. Like others have noted, I did not like having to use the 6th floor or walk through the smokey casino (in in appearance but in smell) to get to the comedy area, karaoke, alchemy bar or Atlantic dining room but the only way to fix that would be to completely redesign the boat. The casino needs better ventilation as the cigarette smell radiated up to the 6th floor. Also, it would be great of the sports bar was not exposed to the casino to eliminate the smoke smell as well. Our cabin was great. Ironically enough I was super sick (motion sickness) from the flight earlier that morning but absolutely fine in the aft of the boat. It was very clean and efficiently stocked/tended too. Dining, le sigh. Lower your expectations. I learned my lesson that the cheaper the cruise is, the worst the food's quality would be. I'm glad I didn't book the Chef's Table. My husband was served raw eggs in this Breakfast bowl and the staff was always absent, slow and not personable. We had breakfast in Atlantic every morning and the taste of the food was inconsistent, but the service was always consistent in that the servers were inattentive and not personable. Entertainment was okay. I hated the shows outside of the newlywed show because it was centered around rock n roll and older style selections. As 30 somethings who listen to pop, R&B and gospel, the shows were very unappealing to our generation and culture. The comedian Azeem was good but his mature (18+) show was definitively not for the faint at heart. Lots of f & b bombs but I still found humor in some of his act. Service was more of a miss than a hit. Our cabin steward was the best and our dinner staff on the last night was the best service we received the entire cruise. The ports were okay. I wish we could have stayed in Key West a bit longer but we made the most of it while there. We did the hop on hop off trolley and enjoyed seeing the new and old island and hearing the history. During our Cozumel port the gangway was damaged due to a very bad storm so many people were stuck outside the boat for at east 4-6 hours while the gangway was repaired. We were happy we stayed on board that day to enjoy the empty boat. The passengers weren't the best but not the worse either. Many were friendly, most were 20 somethings who preferred being drunk/intoxicated so I'm sure they would cruise this boat again. We are more mature, laid back, foodies so this wasn't an appealing cruise for us, nor were we anxious to do another one very soon. Disembarkation was a mess and very disorganized. We carried our luggage off the boat and they called too many floors at once. We stood in a long line for a while and once back in the Port of Miami you were treated as if the vacation was over. Unenthusiastic employees who chanted "Welcome back" in a very monotone voice who made it clear to keep moving and leave the port ASAP. Read Less

We flew into the Miami Airport where we were able to check in with Carnival avoiding the long lines at the port. Our family was in balcony rooms on Deck 8, rooms 8267 (this room was too near the elevator lobby doors and was too noisy at night), 8269, and 8271. They opened one of the doors for us on the balcony creating a joined balcony which was so nice. We loved Guy's Burgers, and the dining room's food was delicious every night. Our grandchildren loved the water slide, the playground, and the putt putt. All Carnival employees were friendly, helpful, and kind. We parasoled with Sebago Watersports in Key West. Absolutely a wonderful adventure for all the adults. Easy lift off and easy return! So peaceful and the view was to die for. In Cozumel we taxied to Playa Mia, a resort on the beach with all kinds of water toys, beach chairs, and a splash pad for the kids. It was a great bargain for the cost. We disembarked ourselves and were to the Miami Airport by 9:30am. They had a checkin for our luggage right where we got off the bus, and were able to print our boarding passes for the plane there too. Read Less
