5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 04, 2015
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9276
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Very outdated ship, there is no attention to detail. Painters are very sloppy, paint & stain drips where they shouldn't be. Ship is very dirty, don't touch the hand rails, don't think they have been cleaned in months. 

Lines for everything, not well organized. If you want a restful cruise don't choose Carnival. I love Celebrity & Princess, but we traveled with a group. So I had to go along with the what everyone wanted. I will never cruise on carnival again

David our pool waiter was amazing. Most staff was OK. Our room steward walked in on my wife twice, not right

Cabin / Stateroom

Carpet hasn't been cleaned in a while. Love a balcony no matter what ship, the views are great

Ship Tip

Lido deck rooms are the place to be, easy access to pool & buffet. If you drink on vacation, get the drink card, it was worth it.
No need to get dressed up on this ship, people wear shorts to dinner. I am used to Princess ships, men wear tuxes & women in formal gowns. Don't touch the railings

5 out of 5
Get a hotel room the night before your cruise
