Ship Facts: Carnival Victory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Victory Deck Plans
Carnival Victory - April 2012
Boarded Carnival Victory on April 29th, 2012. Have travelled many times with Carnival. This ship was just O.K. While it was clean, it is a bit dated.

The biggest disappointment was the meals in The Dining Room. There were 5 adults travelling in our group and we all agreed that the food on Lido was better and you didn't have to take nearly 2 hours each night to complete your dinner. The service was slow and the selections were not like they have been on past trips. Many nights the same selections in the dessert and appetizer categories. The quality of food on CARNIVAL or at least this ship was not good. Don't know if it is the chef on VICTORY or CARNIVAL is cutting back. The flavor just wasn't there. Many people on our excursions said the same thing. Don't waste your time...just eat on LIDO but the dining experience of course will not be the same.

CARNIVAL needs to improve the entertainment as well. Tired of the NEWLYWED games and BATTLE OF THE SEXES. Come up with some new ideas...please. Went to see 3 comedians and only 1 was funny. Hardly anyone laughed for the other 2 and people got up and left. The ship was noisy and alot of people on our trip were rude running up and down the halls all hours of the day and night. That is not CARNIVAL'S fault obviously. The only quiet place on the ship to really relax was on SERENDITY DECK. My husband and I enjoy music but it is so loud you have to scream to each other to talk. CARNIVAL needs to provide a place where there is relaxing music where you can converse while relaxing.

Overall, very disappointed with our experience this time with CARNIVAL. The stops we made were amazing and we planned some amazing excursions. Loved the Islands...St. Lucia, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Barbados.
