Our 25th Anniversary Cruise

Sail Date: October 09, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

My husband and I planned our 25 Wedding Anniversary Cruise 6 months in advance. This would be our first cruise with Carnival and will be our last. Our stateroom was not clean. When we complained to Customer Service notes were taken then the young lady asked if I could take medication for the mold and dust allergies. I did not want to ask what she would suggest to do about the window you cannot see out of (Ocean View). During previous cruises dining experiences were great. This time there was long lines and cold food. The food choices were limited to 2 menus in the main dining room. Dining room staff appeared overworked as they were arguing very loudly. They waited to serve until all seats were filled in a section then meals were served together. We were alone not with a section. In the other areas, lines were 30 minutes long just to get in many times with one area open.

Pros: Ship is definately a party ship.

Cons: Customer service, Dining experiences and cleanlyness

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Food and Dining
POOR. Long wait time cold food and poor choices. Not up to standards of other cruises taken.
Cabin / Stateroom
The size of the Stateroom was very compatible to other cruises. After getting settled there was a lot of dust left behind. Mold was very active in the bathroom needing cleaned and was not during the cruise. A Stateroom with Ocean View was selected because of the beautiful views but the window was in desperate need of cleaning to be unable to see the view. There were ample amount of closets but 1 was filled with extra bedding leaving very little for our clothing. The mattress was sagging in the middle of each twin bed put together as a king. The stateroom was average and not plush by any standards.
Service and Staff
Over worked and not enough to serve the amount of customers.
Ship Quality
Size and Decor great.
Good entertainment
