Awesome cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Aug 17, 2015

The boat was older and had an odd smell in some places. I have been on different cruises in which the elegant dinning had a better selection in food and where we were treated more like royalty. It was still a great and memorable family experience.

VICTORY CRUISE 8/17/15-8/22/15

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Aug 17, 2015

WE'VE CRUISED WITH CARNIVAL 6 TIMES. THIS TRIP WAS HORRIBLE BECAUSE THE FIRST NIGHT WE WAS THERE THE PEOPLE IN THE  CABIN RIGHT NEXT TO US CAME IN LATE, DRUNK AND STARTED FIGHTING. THEY ALSO PLAYED LOUD MUSIC ALL DAY. NO ONE DID ANYTHING. I WENT TO THE DESK TO REPORT ALL THE PROBLEMS. KIDS RUNNING THROUGH THE HALLS, SLAMMING DOORS. OMG!!!! THE FOOD WAS GREAT. WE CHOSE TO EAT IN THE DINING ROOM TO AVOID THE CROWDS.WE COULD NOT GET INTO THE POOLS BECAUSE OF THE CHILDREN. OUR ROOM WAS CLEANED VERY GOOD. WE HAD A GREAT TIME IN JAMAICA. WORTH THE MONEY.

I had the Time of My Life!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Aug 08, 2015

This was the perfect trip after a hellishly long winter.  The water was so beautifully clear, the sights were amazing, and the service was incredible.  We had the best waiters at dinner and breakfast.  Marcelo was hilariously funny and made the cruise so much fun. This was the best 5 days of my life!

Good for your money

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Aug 03, 2015

Overall I had a great time. The ship itself was clean and well laid out. They made getting off on and back on the boat extremely hassle free and quick. SERVICE: everyone was very friendly, attentive, and professional. Some bartenders were better than others. Our server at dinner and room attendant really stood out. We spent a lot of our time at the casinos, enough to know that some dealers were much friendlier than others. One specifically, on multiple occasions, was rude to the guests and would even move around bets on the craps table without request and refused to 'chip up' when asked. FOOD: I would have liked better food. More specifically, the room service was extremely difficult to contact at all hours of the day. Once my order had been placed, it arrived quickly, but getting a hold of them on the phone seemed impossible. The dinner food each night was as expected, bland to please the masses. It seemed too that they strategized when they would give out the good stuff i.e. the captains night and the last night was the best meals. The buffets were as expected and the 24 hour pizza was delicious! The 'restaurants' were definitely not open enough hours and seemed pointless to even be there i.e. the Chinese chopsticks was only open 2.5 hours a day for lunch, even on port days. DECKS: We mostly enjoyed the adults only pool/jacuzzi so I can not speak much for the main deck. The pool/jacuzzi were nice but rather small to fit all the guests who preferred this accommodation. More so, the signs indicating that it was an adult only area were small and not visible to many so were ineffective and the staff did a very poor job and implementing the policy. Being that the pizza is closely located to the adults only pool, this was often an issue. I also experienced problems with the over chlorination of the pools, making them unenjoyable as my eyes burned just being in shoulder deep after five minutes. ENTERTAINMENT: Coming from a minimal dance background, I would say the performers needed improvement as they were often unsynchronized. The comedians were very entertaining but I would say needed to be moved to the big theater since lines had to form an hour before the show and still yet it was a standing room to get in. For these reasons we only enjoyed one of the shows. The best entertainment was on the last night, the up-close magic show by Rakin. I highly suggest everyone take the time to check him out. He is very talented, professional, and friendly. I feel sorry for those who were unable to experience his talents and would like to see him get more time slots and would suggest he get the red and black bar to perform in rather the Alchemy off to the side bar. We enjoyed the art action very much and even bought a piece. This was not something we expected to do on the trip but Andris and Andre were very personable and made our first art action experience very enjoyable. On land this is something that would of been too intimidating to try out so I am glad for it.

Had a great time. Not for the older adults or those with handicaps. Being a first time cruiser, a little more information would have been nice. Overall I had fun .

5th time is not a charm.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 30, 2015

I booked 4 cabins, was told several times all the cabins would be linked so we can have dinner together. We sat together one night. One of the cabins I booked didn't get their on board credit.They took out gratuity before hand. This experience has been very different from the rest of my cruises. Cruising 4-5 times prior I expected more. Think I'll go with another cruise line next time

Entertainment and food

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 30, 2015

The entertainment is so out dated.  It needs more modern music and dancing.  Food didn't taste as good as it usually is.  I mean it really was bad.  THe pool area was clean and the ship was in great shape.

A well deserved vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 30, 2015

I really enjoyed the cruise. The food was delicious and more than enough was prepared. The embarkation process was a little stressful. Our rooms was ready until 1;#0pm. We got on the ship around 12 noon. So they herded all the guest to the Lido deck with only one spot open for food. They only served hotdogs and hamburgers, which I don't eat. If you are allowing you quest to come on ship then there should be more variety of food available and our rooms should be ready. Next, the kids are allowed to sit at the bar and walk through the casino. You can't find a spot in the pool because kids are using the adults pool too. They are not being supervised. People are noisy and rude. We bought two excursions on the ship. They did not give us any directions as to where to meet for the excursion after debarking off the ship. So we wandered around and found the spot ourselves. Our two port were key west and Cozumel. I surprised by the cost of food in Cozumel. I would loved to be warn to buy bug spray for my tour to see the Mayan ruins. I was bit all over by mosquitos.

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 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.

The Lido deck have continuous food daily and offered a variety of food. Excellent.
