Interestingly boring!

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
They had an entire day geared to spa activities and to me that was quite boring. That made it for a ship to be packed with people most times on the upper decks cause there wasn’t much to do. They had two comedians and the only good one was Lester Bibbs, the other one should have been left on shore. The lines for the food were soooo long and at night with the only thing being pizza available had waiting times of one hour plus. On a good note if you had the patience to wait for a pizza they were delicious and made fresh. The hamburger and fries was awesome too. This specific cruise was an LGBT cruise and it would have been great to know that before booking. I will be more selective on my next cruise

terrible we went to art auction were they say to sign up to see if u quailfy for there credit card my bf was accepted he won a piece of art/photo and bought 3 total was $3,000. THE CREDIT CARD HAS NO INTEREST RATE. HE WAS GOING TO PAY IT when it was sent to us as they auction ppl said. but when we was checking off ship we was stopped by secturity and couldnt leave til we paid 3,000 dollars it went on our ship payment . it was a big mistake on the crews part and very embaressing .. and the hurricane was horrible we drove to flordia from boston was stuck in virgina for 2 days our home in NAPLES ws not able for us to go to plus georgia blocked all there exits off so we couldnt get gas towed our car to jacksonville and only could get 30.dollars worst of gas they had limits. all around this trip sucked i got the cruisr after our first cruisr in march for my bf birthday when we got there on ship the lady at customer service said to come back and they would upgrade our room .. never happened i waited in line 1 hour for her to say sorry hahaaha

The cruise was memorable in more ways than one! We were kept safe during hurricane Irma and the care and hospitality that was extended to passengers was overwhelming.

Frustrating and Disappointing

We won't be sailing with Carnival again. There were many little things that brought us to this decision but there were 3 major issues that brought us to this conclusion. #1 Communication - We sailed when a hurricane was headed to FL, nothing at all Carnival could do about the weather, BUT, they could have communicated. They announced that they were modifying our port time in Cozumel to "enable the ship to port in Miami before the port closed". That announcement was made on Wednesday morning. They never once announced when that arrival time would be. Passengers needed to change travel arrangements and plan around cancelled flights but had no information to make those critical decisions. We asked at Guest Services and were advised Thursday Night but when speaking with the Cabin Steward he stated they were incorrect and provided different information. Who do you trust? The actual information was not provided until an announcement was made on Thursday at 10am that there would be a Disembarkation Session at 11am. If you didn't attend that session you were not provided with the information until a flyer was put under your door about 4pm. The stress this caused was unacceptable. #2 - Second Hand Smoke - We have sailed on many ships on many cruiselines, they have all offered smoking areas, we cannot think of one time we have ever been so affected to the point of not being able to enter certain areas of the ship to enjoy an activity. #3 - Service - Although the Crew was friendly they did not have a focus on service. Piling dirty dishes on Passenger tables so they could not be used, not ensuring a cabin was stocked with the basic requirements, having personal conversations while Guests are waiting to be assisted, not verifying information before providing it, providing the same information to all Guests, and communicating with Guests in critical circumstances.

Overall,the trip was good besides being treated like crap at the coffee shop. I would cruise again, but probably not Carnival Victory. I did enjoy Carnival Fantasy.

overall fun cruise, if your looking for a very very special cruising experience the boat isnt special, for most it can still be a great vacation, as i mentioned earlier the food and wait staff are great and accommodating to our dietary needs (vegan)!! The guest service really needs work!!

Excellent service, very friendly and proffessional crew, lots of food choices. Music a bit too loud sometimes. Clean and comfortable cabins. Three swimming pools, one is for adults only.

Not a fan of Carnival

I have to say, my comments may sound not so nice. It was an okay experience on Carnival. I don't think we will be traveling on Carnival anytime soon. :( It's unfortunate, everyone I told I was on Carnival their comments were " ohhhh" what did you expect! I heard Carnival is coming out with a newer and bigger ship?! Who knows, maybe I'll test that one out. But for now, I'll have to continue going with Royal Caribbean. However, our food and room service was outstanding. I cant complain about server or the person who cleaned our room. Super friendly , they both knew our names and used them every time they saw us. They work very hard and give them 10's if I could!

Huge dissapointment considering the very good experience last year on the Valor. Staff was concerned with making money as opposed to making this vacation fun. Crew had a very stand of approach to customers and when asked a question the common answer was i dont know i just started.

I enjoyed myself and so did my children, just make sure the toilets are good to go for the next room guest. I am very glad you started using American cheese instead of only having cheddar for the "off the grill" restaurant.

Being in the Carnival Victory has been an hilarious experience for my 7 yrs old son, my mom, and me. We have shared our experience with families and friends and everybody wants to go next time. We are ready for coming back. THANK YOU, CARNIVAL CREW FOR HAVING US AND MADE US FEEL AT HOME!
