  1. Hi i am sailing on the Carnival Victory in December 2019...I just booked cabin 9299...looked on you tube...and saw the actual cabin....only thing that puzzles me, is that it looks like a smaller cabin basically for one person and the category i am in is a 4J....Was hoping i could get some information on this cabin, if someone has sailed in this cabin before...like is there a lot of noise from lido deck....is this cabin the usual 185 feet cabin like all the other interior cabins....reason why i picked this cabin, as it is right near to the pool and buffet area....and i dont have to constantly ride up and down the elevator.....any information would be greatly appreciated.... you can email me at catfin7atgmaildotcom....
  2. Here it is everyone, those impossible to find Itineraries. This was a 4 day/3 night, Miami-Bahamas (Nassau) with overnight 10am-7am no other stops, weekend cruise. Your schedule is likely to be very similar if you're hopping on the same cruise this year.
  3. I was watching a video of the Ocean Suite, 7258 and it showed the tv on the side of the room, not across from the beds and it didn't look like it even swiveled out. I know a lot of people wouldn't care, but we do take a nap or just some chilling out time prior to dinner and like to watch a movie or some tv, but this doesn't look possible at all from the bed. Does anyone else know. It just seems weird that carnival would put a tv on the side of the room and not across from the bed. Especially since they aren't particularly big tv's so they can't be seen from everywhere in the room.
  4. We can disembark at 10 am saturday, we leave Nassau at 8 am sunday am.. Do we have to be back on the boat by a certain time saturday? Anyone know this? Thanks
  5. This will be the my daughters first cruise (21years old) and will be the first time my wife and I have had a third person in the cabin with us. Has anyone slept on the sofa sleeper? We were wondering if it’s reasonably comfortable or if we should bring some kind of pad. TIA.
  6. first time traveling on carnival, there is 4 adults in the room, but only 1 is a drinker, what are my options, as i can't just order one drink package but instead have to spend $980 for 3 people who don't drink at all and 1 who does, Can i just purchase all soda packages instead and purchase the bar fun cash for the one who does drink???? My husband and I and my mom are diabetics so we can't drink alcohol so wondering what i should do
  7. We will be on the Victory out of Miami, going to Miami then Cozumel. Itinerary says 12:00 to 10:00. I've been checking the port schedule, and they list Victory as 1:30 to 10:00. For anyone who's been on this itinerary, what time has the ship been getting there? Seems like most of the island shuts down at 4:00 or 5:00, so getting there at 1:30 would be REALLY disappointing. http://m.puertamaya.com/Port-Schedule.aspx
  8. Would anyone be willing to sell, or purchase for us, a Carnival Victory ship magnet. It was our first cruise on Carnival. My husband collects the ship magnets, and we have all of the ones we have sailed except the Victory. We thought we would sail on her again one day, but since she is being renamed, that won't be possible. We have PayPal, or could mail you a check, or however you prefer. If anyone can assist with this, we would be very grateful. Our email is mchjch@live.com if you want to send us a message. We appreciate any help or suggestions. Have tried ebay, no luck. Jo & Mark
  9. I'm certain that this topic has been discussed before but this new search format is less than desirable and before the CC hounds pounce me, please forgive my repeat question as I can not find the topic! So a friend just off Victory discovered two $25 chips in his pocket when he got home. Can the chips be used on Horizon? If yes, I will trade him $50. for the chips and make him whole!
  10. Anyone have any updates on the Victory? I read that they had to change their itinerary due to mechanical issues and not being able to hit max speed. Instead of Key West and Cozumel, they are now docking in Nassau and Princess Cays. Just seeing if anyone has more details.
  11. As I was headed to dinner I saw the victory still in port and thought she is getting a late start. This was about 5. Headed back around 7:30 and she was still there. You could see the that the dive on movie was playing. Is this normal or are they having a problem?
  12. Anyone know which dining room they use for ATD on the Victory? I think we were in the Pacific (aft) dining room when we had a set dining time last year, but didn't pay any attention to where ATD was. Thanks for any info.
  13. From a press release on john heald facebook page: more info at https://www.carnival.com/cruise-ships/carnival-radiance.aspx
  14. The only information I have found is from pre-upgrade to the Victory. Are the HDMI ports on the TV's working or are they disabled? Would love to bring my SNES mini along for when I'm a little lit at night and want to relax with some Mario Kart.
  15. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what s in the blank space on deck three between the lobby and the dining room on this deck plan. I think we are under it, and I am concerned about noise. We have an interior cabin on deck 2. Thanks. The link would help... https://www.carnival.com/about-carnival/~/media/Images/Ships/VI/DeckPlans/carnival-victory-accessible-cruising-deck-plan-pdf.ashx
  16. Hello everyone :), It has been a long time since I booked a cruise on Carnival. I have only been on three Carnival Cruises: Valor in 2011, Triumph in 2001, and Fantasy in 1996. The rest of my cruises have been on Royal Caribbean. I have a long weekend in November and I'm thinking about booking the 3-day Bahamas cruise. Which ship would you recommend Liberty or Victory and why? How are the balcony rooms? What do I need to know as I haven't sailed on a Carnival ship in 7 years? I know this would be an adjustment for me as my cruises are typically 7-days and my last 2 cruises have been on Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas. Any information is greatly appreciated.
  17. Hi! Looking for a recent Fun Times for the 3 day Bahamas cruise on the Carnival Victory. Thanks and happy cruising!
  18. I did my first solo cruise on the Victory from September 10-14 and had a great time! A more detailed review follows. DAY 1 Embarkation in Miami I flew in same day from Philadelphia. Best part was being able to check in for the cruise right in the airport! Quick and easy; took less than 10 minutes and I was waiting for the shuttle to the port. That took a while. The airport had enhanced security in place that day, so every bus and van was being searched and inspected by dogs before being released to pick anyone up. Once we boarded, it was a short 15 minute hop to the pier. After surrendering my suitcase to a porter, we were ushered right into the terminal, bypassing the long lines. Right to the carry-on scanner then on board. There were dedicated elevators to take you right to the Lido Deck. I was sitting in the sun enjoying Blue Iguana tacos by 1:10pm. When cabins were ready, I headed off to find 8231...inside cabin. Fantastic location and lovely cabin. My steward introduced himself and I requested 2x daily service and to please keep my ice bucket filled. I was unpacking my carryon when a knock on the door indicted my suitcase had already arrived! That is the fasted I have ever gotten my bags. Unpacked and went out to explore a little bit. I was tired after an already long day (up at 3am to make my flight!), so I napped before dinner. Once arriving in the Pacific Aft DR on Deck 3, I was seated at a table for single cruisers. Now, this was kind of the part that made me a bit nervous in this experience, but there were only 3 of us at a table for 6 and it stayed that was until our final night. We had great conversation each night and it worked out great. Dinner that night was a grilled mahi mahi that was delicious. I had melting cake for dessert. Had to stop and enjoy a drink at Alchemy after dinner...the Antioxidant was refreshing. Alchemy bartenders were not as friendly as those we had on the Pride in January, but the drinks were still good. Enjoyed the Dive in Movie on deck then went to the Welcome Aboard show with Felipe the CD. He was a blast the entire trip.
  19. Hubby and I are looking into a Dec cruise. Which ship would you choose and why. Both ships have the same itinerary, Key West and Cozumel and price is close to one another. The only Sensation cruise I had was a shortened hurricane cruise, so it was really messed up.
  20. Did a quick 3 day cruise on Victory this weekend. Unfortunately like I expected, college football games on the major networks were not available. Specifically the Washington-Auburn game and Miami-LSU game were not available on the ship. For most of Saturday they had the following 4 channels on in the sports bar: ESPN, ESPN 2, FS 1 and the SEC Network. According to one of the bartenders in the sports bar Carnival is working on obtaining access rights to more colllege football games and is supposed to be getting access to Sunday Ticket this year. However, he did state those decisions are made at a much higher level and he usually doesn’t know for certain what sports are actually available until the day of the game(s).
  21. Hi All, Can guests who have not paid for a spa treatment use the sauna (specifically men's sauna) on the Carnival Victory? Is it free for public use or only with purchase of a spa treatment? Thanks!
  22. Trying to decide between the Victory sailing to Key West and Cozumel and the Paradise sailing to Grand Turk and Cozumel. The victory is a four night while the paradise is a five night, this will be our first cruise . Flying out of illinois, Tampa is more expensive than flying into Miami, after checking prices. Which would you choose and why?
  23. hello all I'm looking for a copy of the fun times for the victory 4 day sailing, please.
  24. Background: have sailed Carnival, RCCL, NCL, Celebrity and two booked for MSC. On Carnival: Glory, Splendor, Pride, Fantasy...and now the Victory. We have always enjoyed our cruises on Carnival. The Victory...not so much. However, this was a last minute 4 day cruise. We had non-refundable airline tickets for a wedding that was cancelled...so we had to find something to do in this time period. Would NEVER normally book a booze cruise (aka: less than 5 days) and have never cruised less than 8 days. Take my quickie review with a grain of salt. Cabin: 2457. Why this was available, I will never know. Twice the size of a cabin with window. Beautiful and roomy. Trying to save a few dollars? Book it. Great cabin with tons of room and storage. Only remark...NEVER saw or met our cabin steward. We are used to the steward introducing him/her self on the first day. Nope...never saw him. Really not a problem. Supplied cabin with towels and ice (which we requested via note stuck to mirror). Our hallway: OMG many people with room service. Hallway TRASHED with dishes and garbage for four days non-stop. I took pictures every single day to show the accumulation. Just unbelievable. By day 4, you could barely get down the hallway to the elevator. Food: We had MDR 6pm seating (which we would never choose, but the only thing available). Yes, food is subjective. Lots of cruises under my belt. No problems ever. This....not so much. Won't even bother to go into detail. Terrible. We even ate dinner at the buffet on the third night to avoid. The buffet was actually pretty good. Guys burgers? WTH happened? We were so looking forward to this. (loved it on the Pride). YUCK. Burnt, greasy, hockey puck burgers. Deli? Still wonderful. Entertainment. There were two comedians. Mike S. and Mike Macy. Both were funny for their PG shows. Tee Hee. Ha Ha. Their R rated shows? OMG.....Mike S. was okay. Mike Macy? A MUST SEE. If you are over 60, make sure you wear your Depends! If there are any black people reading my review....please chime in about the lady in the electric wheel chair. Never laughed so hard in my life. Mascara running down my face. Casino: HEY PEOPLE ...get your babies and toddlers and kids out of the casino. I mean ...REALLY??? Midnight , smoke, drunks, deafening music.....geeeeeez. What is wrong with parents today? Speaking of Smoke: If you HATE smokers...skip this part, as it will not interest you. Husband and SIL are smokers, as are a few other family members. Smoke has never bothered me, as I know it bothers many people. (nose pinchers, as they walk through the smoking section) Well, deck 10, Aft, Starboard, probably has the best smoking section I have ever seen. It is enormous, with actual furniture, tables, loungers and umbrella's. There is NOTHING else there and therefore NO NO NO reason for nose pinchers to be there. Attire. Let me put it this way......Mike Macy stated it very well...his words, not mine. Quote: "Carnival Cruise Line is the only Cruise Line that accepts food stamps as payment". Nuff said. Well, we dipped our toes in a quickie cruise. Now we know what it is like. Never again. Should have just took the loss on the plane tickets. Oh well.....live and learn. :cool:
  25. Wondering if anyone can tell me what the differences are between the Victory and Sensation? As far as ice rink, movie theaters, etc
