The Party Ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: May 21, 2015

My husband and I were celebrating our 9th year wedding anniversary.  I was a bit disappointed that at dinner nothing was said and nothing was done to our cabin.  We usually get a little card saying happy anniversary from the Carnival Management or Family.  Other than that the Cruise was really good.  We were told the boat was going to be renovated in the month of April, but I did not notice anything renovated, there was a construction area blocked off in the upper level of the adult pool.  The day we arrived back to Miami there was heavy construction being done to the boat.  The noise woke us up.  The cabins need some renovations, but the size of the cabin was fair in comparison to past cruise cabins.  The pool party's with DJ Devine were really good.  The music was on point and everyone in the crowd was enjoying the party.  The music in the Club at nights was really low and not enjoyable.  We enjoyed the Latin Club live music more than the regular club because of the noise level.  Over all the cruise was really good and memorable.

Carnival Victory cruise to Key West Florida and Cozumel, Mexico

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: May 21, 2015

The Carnival Victory Ship was an amazing ship. We stayed in an oceanview room which had a large window to enjoy the scenery outside.Everything from the staff, the food, an entertainment was fabulous. It was our first time to Key West and Cozumel. KeyWest is a very quaint with a lot of shops, restaurants and bars. Cozumel is breath taking with its beautiful bright blue waters and white sandy beaches. We did not want to leave and we are planning another cruise this year.

Fun for 20-30 somethings.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Victory | Sail Date: May 21, 2015

While my teens and I enjoyed ourselves, this cruise was quite the party ship.  Lots of young people in their 20-30's - drinking and partying.  The ship itself was very well maintained, quiet rooms, good food, and great hospitality.  The entertainment was so-so, comedy club was good.  I would recommend this ship if you want to drink and dance but not so much for teens and families.  There were only about 10 older teens on the ship.  The ports of Key West and Cozumel were great.

Fantastic vacation!

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

This was my first cruise and I was a bit unsure about going on a cruise before we left, but my experience was great. There were over 3,200 people on our cruise so I was expecting things to be more crowded, but there were so many things to do on the boat that people were dispersed among the different activities so things never got too crowded.

We had a great time on the boat and the shows and activities were a lot of fun. Our experience at the ports was only ok (which is why I only gave this cruise 4 stars), and we actually ended up having more fun on the boat then we did at the ports. 

The staff on the boat is really what made our cruise so great though. We had a fantastic group of waiters in the dining hall and we actually looked forward to seeing them every night and were sad to say goodbye on our last night. Our room steward was fantastic as well and very friendly. 

 

Tips for others considering this cruise:

Parking at the port of Miami costs $20/day so it may end up being cheaper to fly depending on the size of your group (with the cost of gas and parking, we would have been better off flying)

You cannot get into the city in Grand Turk from the port without taking a taxi-so plan to take one or book an excursion

Nassau is very dirty if you venture outside of the main shopping area- take a taxi to destinations that are further from the port or be prepared to walk through some run down areas

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this cruise and would not hesitate to cruise with Carnival in the future. The rooms could use an update in the decor, but they were much bigger than I was expecting based on other reviews I've read and they were very clean and comfortable. The staff on the boat is great, and they really work hard to provide you with a great experience.

Love the ports this cruise goes. Cayman and Ocho Rios are great! Food on the cruise is just so so. The stuff on the cruise is really nice. Seeing sunrise on the cruise was amazing.

Honeymooners

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

My wife and I went on the Carnival Victory for our honeymoon cruise and it was fantastic.  The food, service, courtesy, and drinks :) were all top-notch.  The two ports visited, Grand Cayman & Jamaica were lovely and Carnival provided a booklet to tell us about all the available excursions at both ports of call.  We would love to cruise again, and would definitely choose Carnival again--that is, unless, we have kids then we're probably stuck with the mouse :(

Carnival Victory Cruise to Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios

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

Fantastic five day cruise.  Service and staff were excellent.  Food good but meat sometimes overcooked.  As with any cruise, the pre and post activities )check-in, customs, etc.) are cumbersome, but necessary.  Great excursion to the private VIP Party at Bamboo Beach in Ocho Rios.  Very good tour of Grand Cayman including our visit to Hell.  Highly recommend this cruise.

For a fun time go Victory

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

The sea days were slow .  However, at night you were running from place to place trying to catch the different entertainment. All activities were well organized.   The waiters I n the restaurant were phenomenal.   The housekeeping staff went above and beyond.  Guest services displayed the patience of the Bible's Job. The cruise director was very engaging and friendly,  a joy to be around.  I'd recommend this cruise.

very enjoyable

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

Really enjoyed the 2 ports. Excursions were great, and well organized. We have been on 3 cruises, this one was a little rockier than the others. Really enjoyed our housekeeping crew, dining crew was not as good as we have had before.

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.
