Ship Facts: Carnival Victory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Victory Deck Plans
Worst ship, best ports of call
It was my 8th cruise, 3 on RCL, 3 on NCL and 1 on Carnival. I had been really positively surprised when I sailed on Carnival Freedom. Best employees, best entertainment and best food of all ships I had been on. So I wanted to try another Carnival ship and when I saw the ports of call that the Victory had to offer, I reserved immediately.

This ship is in the same family of the Freedom but that's all it has in common. Old ship, not as clean, as well taking care off. No specialty restaurant, no mini bar. Nobody telling to use Purel when entering a food place. In fact, they hide the Purel. The entertainment is less than ordinary. It's the first time I cruised on a ship that has employees so different. Some are really smiley and friendly and some seem to be bored and just do their job.

The good things about that cruise; the best ports of call and 5 of them. Only St-Thomas that is so boring. Food in the dining room is very good but not as good as Carnival Freedom. You have to try the smokes duck. The sushis are good but uneven. Buffet food is just OK but lines are too long. The pizza is above good. Breakfasts are just OK. The best of all is that you can bring 1 bottle of wine per adult and you can go back to the duty free shop as many times you want so you can bring as many bottles you want. You can even bring back wine bottles from St-Thomas but not the other ones. You can even pay about 50$ a day to have 15 alcoholic drinks.
