Staff are super friendly\, soemtimes there was a language barrier. This was a bit of a surprise since we started and ended in US territory\, we kinda expected everyone to be fluent in English.

Also I was sad to find out even though they charge you fifteen percent on the value of your cruise for tips\, the employees don't always get that tip money.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was abundant\, but incredibly average. Don't get excited about formal dining\, they serve the same thing they do at the buffet. There is a lot of confusion over the sitdown dining area\, be advised you have a set time to dine\, about 2 formal nights\, and then any other time you can dine there if you want\, or eat at the buffet.

Entertainment was so-so\, the club was not very good they play a lot of their signature songs with prechoreographed dance moves\, so you may see a lot of older people dancing out there. Not at all like your club downtown.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff were very friendly

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Even though the ship looked huge\, we felt much of the movement at sea\, and felt off balance and uncomfortable for most of the time at sea.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Very basic room\, when at sea you will have limited tv channels

Pros: Staff

Cons: Food\, activties\, extra fees\, charging gratuity on total value of cruise

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
