Did a back to back with NCL as the second cruise and will not travel NCL again. by scottbaty89

The thing you should know about Carnival is the steward calls you by name before he even meets you and everyone one else calls you by name once they know it. The entire experience is like that. Service, service, service. Shows are great, entertainment is great for the most part. Hannah at the piano bar was awful. Just keep walking. A lot better music all over the ship. Layout of the ship is great too. Easy to get everywhere. We just keep coming back to Carnival.

THIS IS MY LAST TIME WITH CARNIVAL....... by dropollPA

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

I have been a long time cruiser with Carnival. However this was my first time taking my children. This was also my first balcony room. The food was great, lots of selection. The room steward was ok, nothing spectacular. I would have to call 2-4 times for service to room (cleaning, towels, etc). The Dr. Seuss breakfast is a must if you have kids. It was probably our favorite part. That is where the positives stop. The boat was full of loud drunks ( I get that its a booze / fun cruise) but at the hours 1-4 am the staff did nothing to stop these individuals from continuing to make noise in the hallways. I had several broken items in my room (bathroom vent/light, hallway light) that never got fixed after I asked multiple times. BUT THE MOST DANGEROUS WAS THE SCALDING HOT WATER which came from my BATHROOM SINK EVEN WHEN I RAN IT FOR SEVERAL MINUTES ON COLD WHILE MY WAS ABOUT SON BRUSHED HIS TEETH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I called and they sent plumbing but then my bathroom was out of service for 2 hours. Luckily my inlaws came on board and we were able to use their bathroom. I had to then wait in line for guest services for over 45 minutes to address the issue. As I started to speak with the young lady, Lisa, she said "Oh they wont give you anything but some strawberries." I was appalled that at this point she thought I was just out for a room credit. It was the last full sea day and I would have rather been with my family. However, this is a major safety concern and could have potentially seriously injured one of my children. She then looked up my room (only after she asked me if I really called as if she didn't believe me). She said "Well these things happen with the boat rocks back and forth." I was really livid by this point because she thought I was an idiot if I would believe that. The manager then came and basically gave me drink tickets and 4 chocolate strawberries (keep in mind I had five passengers). I'm totally dissatisfied with Carnival. I've cruised with them nearly 10 years but Its time to move on. AND THEY NEVER GAVE ME MY PICTURES, I HAD TO CALL FOR THEM TO MAIL ME A USB!!!!

The worse experience ever by spanky2581

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Our cruise started out very bad. Our cabin was not well put together. There was four people in our group and they only had it set up for 3 than there was water dripping in front of our cabin door and they set our luggage right in the water. Than had the nerve to tell us that our clothes should be ok seeing that our luggage was cloth material. Than the Guest Servies employees were very rude and disrespectful without even caring how they treated or talk to the quest. I am a long time cruiser and this was by far the worse experience ever. Two of my cabin mates were first timers. Ms Monica who was working quest services was the rudest person I had ever seen. She completely messed up my vibe and point of view of that entire ship. I will never ever take a cruise on that ship again if I ever cruise with Carnival again. My experience had me in tears most of my cruise. Thanks for a crappie time

Good Short Cruise by rw2841999

I prefer longer cruises, but my companion had a time constraint that forced the selection of this cruise. I especially liked the quiet sea day.

Relaxing cruise filled with laughter. by pshagley

Four days was just enough for a quick getaway. Comedians are a must-see as well as the nightly shows. Take an excursion to the Mayan ruins for some cultural anthropology. Relax. Relate. Release

I did not like that some restaurants were only open for a couple hours a day. Other than that and our tv/lights issue it was a decent birthday cruise

I think the drink package needs to be revamped. I disagree with how you are unable to use it on the island of Half Moon Cay.. but it is owned by carnival!! You are robbing your guest!

The Caribbean perfect getaway! by Tarelle318

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The staterooms are in excellent condition. The Bahamas port should be a bit more lively considering several cruise ships actually dock late into the night or until the following morning as ours did. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much happening near the port at all in Bahamas. We eventually made our way back to the ship where all the fun was happening. Try to take advantage of all the activities... immerse yourself into the cruise life culture and you’ll never have a dull moment!

Carnival Victory is a fun ship by CarnivalCriuse

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The entertainment on board near the pool was terrific. The staff was very accommodating. Our suite was very spacious and we loved the balcony. Getting onto the ship was a breeze but it helped that we had priority boarding. The food was average at the buffet and in the dining room. The lines at the buffet were always long due to the number of passengers the ship holds and the dining area being small. Had to search for a table. The disembarkation was the worst. People were leaving at the same time and you couldn’t get off the elevators because passengers and luggage were in the hallways.
