The noise coming from the staff hallway at night made it very hard to sleep

i went to the desk to check on the noise and was told she didn't know anything about a noise and dismissed me.  And then a repeat of noise again on Sunday night

all the other people on the ship were very nice

 

rhe wheelchair assistance man once off the ship was horrible and almost thinking if not sailing with carnival again   Very rude and then told us he didn't get paid and his pay is his tops.

food, service, cleanliness and entertainment . I would highly recommend a cruise on Carnival. This was my first cruise, I choose a shorter trip to see how I would tolerate it before  I book a longer trip.

This was my families first cruise and they really enjoyed it. This was all that mattered. I have had other cruises to compare this to and this did not stand up against the others. I was not happy with the facilities.

Mediocre

This was my very first time cruising and wanted EVERYTHING to be wonderful for the price I paid. There were many cute activities aboard the ship but we were only able to enjoy Nassau for 1 day which was a bummer. I loved the fact that there were a great deal of menu items that were able to be ordered via room service at no additional charge,  dinner was nice every night but portions were very small at times and myself and my children were still hungry afterwards. My downside to my trip was my cabin somehow got wet, a good portion at that and was only refunded $200. A great deal of the workers were rude but had bad manners. The buffet was ok at times especially for breakfast but very crowded and unorganized. After speaking with several other experienced cruisers, Royal is the way to go next time.

Been on many Carnival cruises, and I must say they've stepped up their game on this one. Food was excellent, the entertainment was top notch, and staff was very competent. On the Victory, time to update the TVs, the old CRT boxes are fuzzy and hard to watch. Not that we're there to watch TV, but it would enhance the experience.

For my first cruise I enjoyed it. I was not crazy about the beach Cabbage Beach,

Some of the buffet could have been better. Overall thee boa t was beautiful and handsdown customer service excellent.  The chocolate chip cookies oh man out of this world! I had room service come to deliver the cookies about 5 times lol.

Ship is awesome, but Bahamas... there is nothing to do there! Won't go there again! Not worth it at all... much more interesting in Miami (nature and in general)!

My favorite part of the cruise was our private balcony it was truly fantastic to be able to sneak away from the party and all the noise. To just be able to relax and stare into the ocean was just amazing. Also our stateroom steward was a ninja we asked him for ice our first day there and every time we left the room we would come back to our ice bucket full. It was our first cruise but our Steward Nyoman was simply amazing.

Everything about this Cruise was EXCELLENT!! From the person who cleaned our rooms to the AMAZING waiter at dinner. His name is Yonathan. He was very engaged in helpingd us and every suggestion he gave us about the food was right on the spot. He was very respectful and very good to our children. The shows were the BEST!! I was on the Ecstasy last year and did not have the same experience. The staff of the Victory was excellent. I would love to go on the same ship again.

Not Quite What I Had In Mind

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My favorite part of the cruise was the dining experience. Our wait staff was excellent. The food was pretty good. I rarely was dissatisfied with my food choice.

 

What went wrong...Once we boarded and headed to our stateroom we came upon a crew working outside our room with a ladder and tiles from the ceiling removed. Our door was open to our room and was a water vac on in the hallway. They told us there had been a water leak in our room and outside our room. The guy let us know this had been since morning. We didn't board until about 4pm. We were not informed nor given a new room. We had to walk around the ship taking our luggage with us everywhere...to guest services, safety briefing up on the top deck, and back down to guest services. We were told our room had not been wet and there was no smell in the room. We were not given another room until the following day. After breakfast we returned to our stateroom only to find a wet vac on in our room. Again we had to go back down to guest services. By this time it was getting very old. Throughout our 3 day cruise we woul have to go to guest services about 5 times.  We were given 50% off 2 of the nights we were there. They also refunded our fee for the beverage package we had purchased, and did not add gratuity to our bill.

 

I very seriously doubt I would cruise with Carnival again or recommend them to others.

Get a stateroom near the back of the ship, and close to elevators. You'll be just a few steps from most everything except the Caribbean Theater.

We were in the center of the ship right near the atrium...always pretty noisy, but easy to get everywhere.

We got a room on the middle of the boat near the bottom because I read that you wouldn't feel the rocking as much there and it was very convenient. It was right next to the elevator so it was easy to get to anything on the boat and the movement of the boat was less noticeable there.
