Nice cruise, bad food

We chose this as a last minute cruise. We booked an interior guarantee and got upgraded to a balcony (8201). A terrific financial deal. The crew was nice and it was a shorter cruise (4 days) but the food and activities were not good. I think this ship is going in to be restored but they seem to have given up a bit. The ship is a really good layout and I hope it will be restored to this ...

Carnival Victory 1-31-20 to 2-3-20 My perspective: Single young male no kids, looking for good blackjack, dancing, maybe younger singles groups to meet people my age. Not too picky on room nor food. Novice cruiser. A bit nerdy. I do not smoke nor drink. Second cruise, comparing NCL Sky to Carnival Victory. I have a review for the Sky for those interested. 1. Service. The cruise director ...

We traveled as a couple, and can say from beginning to end this was an enjoyable cruise! I have been on more than 15 cruises and read not so good reviews on this ship, but I have to say this was this cruise was just like any of the "highly rated" ships that I have been on. Embarkation was so easy, we parked our car directly across the street from the ship and walked on within minutes. Our cabin ...

This was my girlfriend's first cruise ever, and my third. I was a little concerned about the ship being scheduled to go into drydock in just a few months, but the ship did not seem to be in disrepair or having maintenance problems. On the first day in the promenade hallway near the casino, we noticed some water dripping from the ceiling. We let security know and apparently it was fixed quickly as ...

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 ...

We just got off the ship today and I would like to share my experience. First and foremost we had a blast. Embarkation was quick and easy. The cabin was clean and the stewards were our friends by the end of the trip. We found this to be the case for many staff. So the shower had a dispenser with shampoo and shower gel. I had a small bottle of conditioner from a recent hotel stay ...

We chose this cruise for both the itinerary and for the low price. In retrospect, I think we would choose something different next time. With Key West's stop being just a few hours in the early morning, I think we all missed out on a lot that the town has to offer. Cozumel, we didn't even get off the ship, instead choosing to lounge around and enjoy the solitude and empty spa! Before I get ...

I chose to cruise with family who needed a quick cruise out of Miami. So, we set sail on Carnival Victory’s 4-day excursion to The Bahamas. I stayed in room 8331. The Cabin. The inside of the cabin was nice looking and updated. The bathroom was clean and functioned well, although my family next door and the next few cabins had sewer backup problems. There was a lot of storage. I tipped ...

We like Key west and wanted a short getaway. Actually, it's our 4th or 5th time on the Victory & we're going again December 2nd. The ship externally is tired, but a quick inspection below decks looks like brand new. ('Vic') is going to Spain in March for a complete refit. The food is equal to or better than any other cruise line. (This was our 46th cruise). Our balcony was bigger than ...

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 ...
