Nice cruise, bad food

We chose this as a last minute cruise. We booked an interior guarantee and got upgraded to a balcony (8201). A terrific financial deal. The crew was nice and it was a shorter cruise (4 days) but the food and ...

Great time on this short Bahamas cruise.

This was my girlfriend's first cruise ever, and my third. I was a little concerned about the ship being scheduled to go into drydock in just a few months, but the ship did not seem to be in disrepair or having ...

An affordable cruise experience with Highs and Lows

We chose this cruise for both the itinerary and for the low price. In retrospect, I think we would choose something different next time. With Key West's stop being just a few hours in the early morning, I think we ...

Victory over mundane

We like Key west and wanted a short getaway. Actually, it's our 4th or 5th time on the Victory & we're going again December 2nd. The ship externally is tired, but a quick inspection below decks looks like brand ...

Some good things, some just ok things

We chose this cruise because it was the same itinerary from the same port we took on our honeymoon 25 years ago. Embarkation/Debarkation were both very smooth. Quickest on/off the boat we have had. Carnival's new ...

This was our second trip on the Victory. This sailing was to Key West and Cozumel, while the previous trip was a few years back from NY to Canada. On this most recent sailing, we noticed areas that were dirty, ...

Awful septic stench in our room. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

We chose this cruise because it was on dates that fit into our inflexible travel schedule and the price was right. It was me, my wife our two young daughters (6 & 3) and my mother. We had an ocean view suite and a ...

We enjoyed parts, but buyer beware. Best Piano man ever.

They say that there's no such thing as a bad cruise. You're not at work. You're healthy and fortunate enough to afford such a luxury. But there are levels to these things. In case you don't want to read a novel ...

A Quick But Fun Experience

We took this cruise because it fit between two weekends in which we had big events. This became our bridge to them. It helped that I had never been to the two ports of Key West and Cozumel. I didn't have high ...
