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 :(

Ship Quality
The ship was very nice. We had a few bigger waves that rocked the boat or maybe it was just the other honeymooners ;-)
Food and Dining
Delicious and abundant. I'm in dire need of a diet after returning home.
Service and Staff
Hery, our steward was so helpful. Kat, Eugene, Anak, and Simona were great bartenders and always put a smile on our faces.
Shows were great, piano bar, cigar bar, and poolside bar(s) were top-notch.
Children's Programs
N/A, but from what I saw there were quite a few but we didn't attend as we're both 31+
Onboard Activities
So much to do, all the time. Probably impossible to do everything even with no excursions.
Destinations and Excursions
Carnival has their stuff together and gets you where you need to go, logistically and properly prepares you for your excursions with guides on the docks to help you find your 'group(s)'
Cabin / Stateroom
Room felt a bit small but then again we were on a boat and not on land where real estate is more abundant. Maybe it's just me. We still enjoyed our time there watching TV or even staring out into the ocean and listening to the waves crash against the hull.
Miami, Florida
Get to the boat early, we got to the curb and a lady stated "cruise?" and we hopped in a cab immediately. Super easy.
George Town, Grand Cayman
The busses were pretty darn crammed here--also be sure that you have a clock on you set to Eastern--not central
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Busses were nicer, everyone will try to sell you cannibis, again--have a watch that doesn't auto-adjust. Dunn River Falls was incredible.


We stayed on the 10th floor and had a balcony--it was a spectacular view and was so peaceful. Fun fact: if you go to Deck 6, there's a door that takes you pretty much to the front of the boat for a nice romantic stargazing session.
