The crew is friendly but rather unhelpful, they never clarified any instructions and I was offered a drink maybe once in my several days by the pool. There was no one out taking drink orders and bringing drinks. The food at the formal dining was not great, and even upon sitting at the bar my younger sister tried to get the crews attention for over 30 minutes. I’m addition when we made it to our second stop we originally were told we could get off at 11, well going through customs has people still on the boat it’s alrwady 2 o’clock. Originally they also said we didn’t have to be back on the hot until 8, that has also been moved up until 6:30. This is the most unruly cruise I’ve ever been on, people are missing their excursions they paid hundreds of dollars for, and frankly it isn’t even worth it to get off the boat anymore. Simply ridiculous. All of this said, we were looking for a cheaper cruise but I feel even for the price it wasn’t worth it. Read Less

I had a really nice time on the Carnival Victory. The ship is in really nice condition, and the staff and food were exceptional. I flew into Miami the night before my cruise. Embarkation was probably the quickest and easiest I've had so far. I arrived right at my arrival appointment, and never stopped in a line until I was getting my first drink at the bar. The ship is nice, though it took me a little time to acclimate to the layout, e.g. when going Aft from Deck 3 Fwd, you have to go up to Deck 5 and over to Aft because the two dining rooms and galley are right in the middle. But once I got used to that, I was good to go. The pool areas were nice; a decent amount of loungers, but I wouldn't have minded a bit more shade. I stayed in an 8C Balcony cabin. It was really nice and pretty spacious. There was a decent amount of storage. The ONLY thing I wasn't a fan of was the safe - it was the kind you need to swipe a credit card to lock. I wanted to put my credit card IN the safe LOL! The balcony itself was nice and I enjoyed sitting out there each day. Food throughout the cruise was very good. I really enjoyed the Blue Iguana Cantina. The only day I encountered crazy lines at the Lido buffet was embarkation. Otherwise, it wasn't too bad. Dinner in the MDR (Pacific) was good as always. Honestly, Carnival always excels in the food. This was my first solo cruise, and I was seated with a few other solos, and it was nice to come to dinner each night and chat about our days. I enjoyed the evening/night life on the ship. The piano bar was a lot of fun, and the Alchemy Bar is a neat concept. The shows are a little cheesy, but that's part of the charm. The staff on the ship throughout were top notch from the dining room to the bars to the "fun squad." Felipe is a really fun cruise director (woo hoo). This cruise stopped at Half Moon Cay and Nassau. HMC is one of Carnival Corp's private islands in the Bahamas and it is PHENOMENAL. Honestly, I could spend a week there and not get tired of it. The tendering process was quick and easy for me. Nassau is Nassau and it was fine; I didn't take an excursion this time and just enjoyed a quiet/empty ship. Disembarkation at the end was a zoo. There were a couple of "stops" so CBP lines could clear and it made the process/wait tedious. I don't know if it's always this way, or if it was an anomaly on this trip. Overall, I really enjoyed myself and would definitely go on this ship again. 10/10 Read Less

best thing about the cruise 1-great service.very hospitable.Our wait staff was Lovely , Damalcia and Carlos.Great staff and exceptional service. 2- kids camp is a great service.have caring and attentive staff. organised.Hours are long .Allow parents to explore the ship and travel .they keep the kids busy. a lot of activities.very satisfied with kids camp 3-cleanliness and safety. Ship was clean.staff was good at cleaning and organising tables right after people were done eating.They clean the deck all through the night.they had air blowers at the entrance to dry the floor.never saw any trash on the ship. Our room steward provided excellent service. things that can be improved upon: 1- Our room got warm during the night even though ac was at the coldest 2-Both Jacuzzi's did not have warm water. 3- heard metal clunking noises outside the room in the early morning hours pretty much everyday disrupting our sleep. my guess is that its the staff trolley. 4-I think food quality can be improved.
