Ship Facts: Carnival Victory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Victory Deck Plans
Seven Days on Carnival Victory in April 2010
Beginning with the ship and it's service: 1) The ship is beginning to show it's age. Nicks and scrapes everywhere. The carpet in cabin way hallways is very worn. The pools are also showing heavy wear and tear. The nicest bar with the best and most comfortable seating is the designated smoking bar. A total waste of a large bar that could be a great gathering place. 2) The food in the dining room was mediocre at best the entire week. Many of our new friends thought the same. Discussions on the beach, wharf and excursions was all the same;..the dining room food was very poor. The dining room staff did do a good job with the service. The food on Deck #9 was typical buffet food, not very appealing.

The big entertainment shows left much to be desired in our opinion. The part-time musicians brought on to entertain in certain bars were fair.

The mini-suite was nice, but the pictures on the Carnival website let you believe they are larger. The Cabin Steward Arvin was awesome. One of the few highlights of the trip.

We thought we would give Carnival another try, but after this trip we are going to try other cruise lines or go back to the three previous lines we have cruised with. This was our eight cruise and one day later feel we should have chosen another cruise line.
