I've been on many CCL cruises. I always loved the Breeze. My son and I took this cruise for 4 days. Worked out perfect for his spring break. What a great time. Our cabin was a Balcony 8405. Great location, and a month ago they ... Read more

Good value for the money. We got an email the day before the cruise that ship would be boarding and departing late due to loading of materials. Boarding wouldn't begin until 1:30pm and departure wasn't until 6pm. We were also notified ... Read more

This was the worst and the best of cruising on Carnival. First, PLEASE believe me that I always go into every situation hoping for the best but...somehow, some way or someone turns my attitude sour. From the beginning when I got that ... Read more

Ship was ok, food was mediocre, hospitality was good. Ship needs repairs and windows cleaned. This was my first Carnival cruise. I have cruised RCCL twice before and will choose them over Carnival next time. Carnival was not bad but I ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had a very narrow date range. It was the worst cruise vacation ever. We have cruised before on other cruise lines and had a wonderful experience. I wish I could get my week back. There were no ... Read more

Embarkation: As the Victory’s cabins are getting a facelift, we (my mom and myself-I’m 29, you can do some approximate math on Mom) received the expected but disappointing email a few days in advance notifying us that our check ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise as we wanted to visit key west, whilst visiting Miami. I must admit, we had fairly low expectations . Having cruised 20+ times before, I had not expected the victory to live up to the premium cruise ... Read more

Before I begin I should put in a disclaimer that I did not really care so much about what cruise I was sailing on this time as my main intent was to meet up with some very good friends we hadn't seen in a while and friends of whom had ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted another short break and our experience on the Carnival Paradise cruise was great for a first cruise for my daughter and myself. We were however disappointed that robes were not provided in our cabin ... Read more

We chose this cruise as a getaway between Christmas and New Years. We have cruised on Carnival, almost all ships, Celebrity, Royal C, many times, Disney and Costa. I agree with a previous review, I need to defend the Victory. Carnival ... Read more

This was the first cruise I had ever been on. Let me start by telling you I had to pay double because I was a single cruiser, so I paid $1800.00, I had room #6221 on Level 6. The room was adequate with a balcony, however, I was only ... Read more

We just wanted a 3 night cruise over Christmas, as we are snowbirds in FL anyway. This is our 3rd time on Victory in the last 4 years, not on purpose, BTW. We always get a balcony room, so we can enjoy peace and quiet. We really enjoyed ... Read more

We chose the ship solely based on dates, length, itinerary, departure port. This ship was our only choice, we have friends who have sailed on Carnival (as had I in 1991) so off we went. In fairness, before my comments below, fellow ... Read more

We did this cruise as our first (probably of many) child free cruise. We had a glitch at the beginning because nobody could access our room. It took until 4:30 (we first tried at 1:30) to get everything resolved. The room Steward ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the price was very reasonable. We were a little leery after reading so many negative reviews, but our experience was a good one. We were late boarding and leaving port, because they are remodeling the rooms on ... Read more
