Do not book this trip!

Sail Date: July 03, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

If it wasnt for who I was with I would have had an awful time. The ship was dirty, including the room when we arrived, the lines for the food were unbearable, the dining room seating was completely poor, the weather was awful, and the excursion to the bay of fundy was a rip off. After making my complaints regarding the excusion only, I was told there was nothing they could do. I have been on 7 cruises in the past and overall this was by far the worst cruise I have ever been on and I would never again cruise with Carnival.

Cons: the whole trip

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Ship Quality
The layout was ridiculous, there were many occassions where we had to walk up and down fights of stairs to get where we had to go. It wasnt clean especially the public bathrooms, and the silverware. On more than one occassion I opened a place setting with a dirty fork or spoon.
Food and Dining
If we were able to get food it was ok, but nothing to write home about at all. Most of it was picked over or old.
Service and Staff
The staff was friendly until there was a complaint, then they were completely unwilling to help
Extremely boring, be prepared to make your own fun if you are traveling on this trip
Cabin / Stateroom
Except for the incident at the beginning it was what is expected on a cruise ship, small and crowded.
Saint John, New Brunswick
It was beautiful but nothing to do at the port. In fact the excursion we took was completely awful and I would only reccomend it to someone who enjoys sitting on a hot bus for an hour without any airconditioning, and being ignored by the staff.
