No More Carnival

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

Due apparently to old design of ship, all buffet eating was on one floor.  Very crowded, long lines, hard to find table to sit at.  Food was plentiful but average.  Dining room service was good but food was not hot when served.  Room service was good except that windows were never cleaned.  Felt ship's engine vibration entire trip.  'on' island time was too short (4-5 hrs per island once you got there).  Evening shows were average with last show pushing a 'gay' agenda.  Stage performers were rude.  Photographers at each port were pushy.

Excellent Experience

Cruise was excellent... I felt that some costumes for performers for shows were a little riskey, but it is very subjective.

Staff was very attentive, everything was excellent :):)

Carnival Victory Girls Trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

We chose the Victory for its ports. Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay & Nassau. The boat is dated nothing g fancy. Service n food is average nothing special. We went in this trip to relax and have fun and that's what we did. Not the best cruise I have ever been on but it certainly wasn't horrible. For the price we got what we paid for! 🌴👍

Awesome time, average food

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

We had a blast. The staff were awesome! Island hopping was great. The food was bland. Got tired of eating the same mediocre breakfast every day. Even the fine dining food wasn't anything special. The drinks made up for the food for sure though! Hit up the alchemy bar! It's awesome.

Good value for the money!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

Rooms: Very roomy

Entertainment: VG to Exc. Marcelo is a keeper. 

Ports of call: Loved loved Grand Turk.. Been to Bahamas numerous times. 

Ship: Dated (2000) Decor too busy/flashy. Nice layout. 

Food: Better than I expected. Variety of choices. 

Cleanliness: crew worked diligently to keep up but other carriers make sanitizer MANDATORY before the buffet or entering DR. 

Crew: Some appeared miserable, disgruntled. Loved our room steward, Edgardo. he was very polite & accommodating. Hard working gentleman. He and Natallia( bartender) were our faves. O and Basham? Atlantic Dining room. 

Thumbs up: Window in our room, Halfmoon Cay beaches and Swirls machine

Thumbs down: long wait lines for most things and DECK CHAIRS SAVED BY PEOPLE WHO NEVER USE THEM. That is enough to turn me off to cruising and send me back to All-Inclusives.

Had a wonderful time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

It was our first cruise, and we enjoyed it immensely! The cruise was very inexpensive, but at no time did we feel that it was "cheap". Everyone was very nice, and the staff/ crew were top notch. Food was great, shows were great, facilities were awesome. The stops were very enjoyable. What else could anyone ask for? I would say that for 99% of cruise customers, this trip was totally acceptable and enjoyable! Take a cruise on the Carnival Victory- you won't regret it!

Made the best of it.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

My husband and I traveled with another couple. We made the best of it, despite the little things in the cabin and dining areas that brought the rating down a couple of notches.  The entertainment on the ship was great, we had a great time at the comedy shows.  The food was decent.   Staff was great, Cozumel excursion was awesome!

Good fun

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date:

Cruise went as expected, and was the good break we needed.

Inside stateroom was adequate (bathroom somewhat dated but with a good shower), entertainment was good (although I still can't get used to the smoke in the casino and some venues) and varied.

The food quality and choice was a little below expectations.

The personel was very nice and helpful.

 

Would give it a 3 1/2 stars and would go again.

 

Boarding and disembarking went smoothly too.

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.
