I chose this cruise because the traveling dates were extremely limited, and this cruise fit the bill. We were a family of 14 traveling, and we booked 4 staterooms, 2 of them suites. Embarkation was a disaster because the person that ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I was told to check out Carnival's line. We choose Victory primarily because of dates and it was going to Cozumel which I'd always wanted to go to. I was advised to purchase FTTF. So glad I did. While our ... Read more

I have been on a few other Carnival Ships and I must say this was my least favorite. We were in cabin 8401 which I knew might be a bit loud. But I found it louder than I thought. It would sound as if people were walking in our cabin as ... Read more

I needed a solo getaway and this was the cheapest cruise I could find. As you can guess, my expectations were low. I was mostly pleasantly surprised. My cabin had recently been redone and the bed was comfy. I wasn't into the entertainment ... Read more

I chose this cruise due to the sailing dates and the ports of call. I liked the ship, but it carried a horrid sewage smell throughout the entire cruise. The entertainment was outdated and geared more for the older crowd. I would not ... Read more

I know carnival is a cheaper line, but I did cruise on carnival about 5 years ago and have seen a big difference. I think it is due to the people that cruise on their ships. We have been on Celebrity and RCI and seen big differences. ... Read more
