  3. Carnival Victory
Just got off the Victory this morning and I miss it already. From beginning to end the Victory was a great exerience. Had a suite-level state room with priority boarding and got right on with no issues. Cabin was clean and spacious and our steward (Evelyn) was very attentive. Great looking ship - had a lot of charm and style. Dining was good - not great - not bad - and the lido buffet had tons of options. Highly recommend Guy's Burger Joint , the Seafood Shack and the Deli. Entertainment was great and fun and our cruise director Felippe was hands down the most entertaining on the ship. We did go to comedy club one night - very funny - and the piano bar sing along was a blast. Loved the very hairy chest contest - super funny and they kept it (somewhat) clean for the younger kids on board. Key West was great - although we felt we didn't get to spend enough time there. Visit Hemmingway's house!! Cozumel was fantastic - best day of the trip - great port and with the Cozumel Plus we had a lot of time to explore. Service was excellent, staff were friendly and fun. I have nothing at all bad to say about this cruise and have already booked my next one.

Great family vacation

Cabin Review

Ocean Suite
Cabin OS 7282
Very clean and comfortable. Our cabin steward was very attentive and friendly. Bed is very VERY comfortable. A little tight for parents and 2 teenage daughters, but we made it work and did not really spend too much time in the cabin anyway. Good sized bathroom and changing area.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Chankanaab National Park Tour
    Went to Chankanaab National Park and spent the day. Went to the sea lion show, snorkled with the kids (BEAUTIFUL) and ended the day with the dolphin swim and a bonus of getting in the water with manatees. Was a perfect day and a beautiful park. Transportation is super easy - taxis are right at the port and charged 12.00 for a family of four. Was much less expensive to book on our own rather than through Carnival and we had more time to spend at the park.
