Ship Facts: Carnival Victory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Victory Deck Plans
!2th Cruise and counting...
Embarcation was a breeze in San Juan. We cruised in January out of San Diego and that was a nightmare! We had upgraded to a balcony on Spa deck because I thought we may have poor weather and it would be used more. The weather was extremely great and we never had rain but a balcony is a great place to hang wet suits or snorkel equipment and such. We also get Smoked salmon with tea and coffee for room service every morning and had that out on the balcony watchibg the sunrise or the islands approaching. It was great for photos.

We never had a proplem with noisey children, being close to Camp Carvival but the fact that we were too close to the outside wall caused extreme noise in the early morning hours when the washed down all the decks. They tend to scrape the lounge chairs for hours it seems instead of picking them up to move them. I found putting an extra pillow over my ears helpful. There was no fridges in the rooms for the 1st time in 12 cruises...that wasn't cool.

The water slide was a blast and there was always chairs everywhere but they were not policing the smokers who were everywhere on deck! It really frustrated me as they gave them the aft side on all open decks to smoke. Once one person saw how easy it was, every smoker just did what they wanted...again, not cool.

It was easy bringing water, soda, wine and spirits onboard. They had a store just before you entered and we went off for chardonney wine at $8.95 & water was $5.99/12pk. The water slide was very nice and the big movie screen under the stars was wonderful too, although there were many missing pixels and it needs an overhaul. We found the food great, as usual. I did here someone complain that the beef was tough but people will always complain. For what we pay, all meals were incredible! Life is a Beach! Now go out and enjoy it.
