Enjoyed the cruise but tricked by priceline

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 20, 2015

My cruise ship experience with Carnival Victory is very good. The only thing I felt disappointed was the way of priceline selling. My total charge of this cruise was $1389. I thought I could get a $100 hotel coupon from priceline that was from their promotion. Eventually, priceline broke down the charge to $910 cruise, $454 taxes and port charges, and $25 processing fee. I only qualified $50 hotel coupon since the cruise was not over $1000. I paid $25 fee booking through priceline and got $50 hotel coupon. Be careful!

Review of Carnival Victory Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 16, 2015

My family, consisting of my husband, myself and 3 children (ages 17,14,12yrs) all traveled aboard the Carnival Victory cruise ship for a 5 day, 4 night cruise to Key West and Cozumel.  I found the accommodations clean and pleasant enough. There were plenty of activities available on board for all age groups.  The food was plentiful and sufficient.  While there were healthy options available through the dining room, the pool side options were limited when it came to healthy options.  Lots and lots of fried food.  

The only complaint I would have is that while Carnival does market itself as a family cruise and there are activities for the children, the price point makes it attractive to the masses and there were masses of partying adults.  It was interesting to me that while they had adult only pools, there were no children only pools.  Quite honestly, I felt that they should have children only pools because most of the pools were over populated with loud, drinking, drunk adults.  

We did enjoy the evening shows. The performers and dancers were top notch and the staff was very friendly, professional and accommodating.  I would recommend this cruise line, however I will be very honest about what they can expect if traveling with children.

Family friendly

I had a wonderful time on Carnival Victory! Most importantly my children loved it. As a single mother traveling with two boys, 3 and 8, it was great that they have such great kids accommodations where they can go and have fun. It gave me sometime to enjoy myself as well. They only thing I really didn't like is standing in long lines with my boys for food.

Wonderful Ship!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 11, 2015

My niece and I traveled on the Carnival Victory to Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, & Nassau.  Our steward was always helpful and friendly as was all of the staff on the ship.  Our Cruise Director was excellent and the food was great!  There is always something to do on the ship, the Victory singers & dancers put on some fabulous shows! All of the destinations were beautiful but Half Moon Cay was our favorite!! LoveWe had a wonderful vacation!

Victory is average at best

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2015

Overall I'd grade this cruise ship a "C."  Most of the staff were great.  Some were not.  Bar service at times was slow due to receipt processing.  Also, Victory doesn't seem to be a well designed ship and is dark in some area instead of natural lighting.

Carnival Victory with 2 ports

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2015

This was a terrific itinerary!  We chose it because we had never been to Jamaica or Grand Cayman. Both ports were great, and we had wonderful excursions.  The ship was clean and the staff onboard were efficient and friendly!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2015

The food selection for after lunch were the same everyday not many choices always hotdogs and burgers. The same went with the Deli station and Chopsticks station so if you missed the buffet lunch time where you could find some other choices you were pretty much stuck with the same other selection even some of their salads offered in the buffet were the same each day.

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.
