STAFF ARE VERY DEDICATED.

NEED SOME IMPROVEMENT ON THE MAIN DECK WHERE FOOD IS SERVED AS IT IS ALWAYS CROWED AS THE POOL IS ALSO IN THE SAME PLACE.

SEPERATE FOOD STALLS FOR THE DECKS.

Beautiful Cruise

It was a beautiful cruise, the food was excellent and there was so much to do. I never felt like I was on a ship it was was smooth sailing. The only thing I did not like was there were adults acting out inappropriately, and there was kids there and there was no security or anyone to stop them, I had to remove my child from the pool. This is advertised as a family cruise so it should be manage a little better.  Big Smile

We stayed at an Ocean Suite. Our experience was perfect..

 

food is great.. and that means a lot to me... My wife has a very sensitive stomach.. if the food was poisoned, not well managed.. anything.. she would be the first to notice it... and for our surprise.. the buffets were very well handled.. food was clean.. tasty... everything was perfect...

 

 

One issue we had..

 

(I'm not blaming Carnival for this.. please read the whole story... it's a public place.. it can happen anywhere)....  

 

our teenage daughter left her cellphone at the arcade... someone took it when we moved to a different toy.. came back to the toy it wasn't there any longer.. but what I'm surprised here.. was how security took the issue seriously... after we reported the incident.. they reviewed the cameras, found the person who took it, and recovered our daughter's iPhone... WOW!!!! very well handled! I would definitely come back at any point.

Nice cruise, with awesome service!

This is one of the shortest cruises we have taken.  The only complaint I have is that the "day at sea" activities were rather lacking.  Bingo?  Not for us.  Sitting in the hot sun?  Nah...We spent the majority of the day on our balcony, or eating.  The music was very good, and the musicians were more than willing to play requested songs.  The Latin music band, and the steel drum musician, were awesome! 

We took my 88 year old mother, and we booked a suite.  It was an awesome cabin!  There was a "dressing area" space where we could get dressed out of sight of the others (without using the bathroom).  There was also a bathtub, which my mom enjoyed.  The balcony was roomy enough to fit up to 4 people comfortably. 

The service in the dining room was excellent.  We went there for breakfast every day, and I don't know why anyone would go to the buffet on the Lido deck, when you can have good food and awesome service in the dining room.  The dinner staff was excellent also.  I was very impressed with their professionalism and speed. 

The stops (Key West and Cozumel)  were fun and enjoyable.

We had Pamela as our guide for Cenote and Talum. Keven for our trolly driver in Key West. They both kept us entertained and informed. They only problem was the tours were not long enough. I could've stayed with Pamela for several days and still be wanting more of the history and culture of the Mayans. 

The cruise was a wonderful trip. To relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The staff of the Victory (Carnival ) were friendly and engaging and some were able to remember our names, that made us feel special. 

The balcony rooms were spacious enough for our family of 3. My daughter enjoyed the kids camp that was included and hated leaving. I have never felt so catered to. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. Can't wait till next year. 

P.S. Will book a 7 day cruise for 2018.

The comedian show was the highlight of this trip. The trip that we booked to relaxing at the Cozamel is so crazy short! Took 45 min boat ride 45 min bus ride we have 15 min to swim 10 min kayak and dinner then took the same time to get back to the ship..which the schedule that created from the cruise ship can make people mpre relaxing because took us 45 min to wait for the trolley to get back to the ship from key west for whatever reason we have oh half a day to enjoin key west and a lot of store and shop not even open by the time they are open we have to get back to the ship then we have to wait at least 1 hours on the line for lunch because there is only one floor restaurant opened that is crazy all people on board was having lunch at the same time ..Any this is my celebration birthday for myself and my daughter because we have the same birthday I did mentioned it when I booked the trip and make reservations for dress up dinner and hopeful to surprise my daughter but nope nothing when we went for dinner no one say anything in the restaurant but guess what the first day on the cruise I got the discount card for spa  from the management because of my birthday ! But the second night for dinner birthday no one mentioned anything and this is my husband 1st cruise so we booked the room with balcony..For me I am not going back to the cruise no more and if I did care again definitely not your cruise people you are failed us Big!

This is an older ship that has been refurbished. There were many things that still needed updating such as bathrooms. Wait staff in the dining room were excellent, however, desserts leave something to be desired.

Great Time

The best part of the cruise was the entertainment. The area that needs to be worked on is the disembarkation. The luggage was not in order. My last cruise had all bags in order based on the tags that were given to me. Instead of all bags that had 15 my bags were all mixed in with all the other bags. This is my only concern. If everything is done with excellence this mist been done in excellence as well.

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.

if you are taking a small 3 nights cruise with a day out on any port, its better to save on cabin with lower price -inside or ocean view. You hardly would have time to enjoy a suite or balcony in such short time space.

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