Cabin 8228
Dec 2016
-Rooms are very outdated (despite some supposed upgrades in 2015) -2 outlets in total -1 small flatscreen TV (non-HD, about 15 channels) -Hallways and room smelled slightly of mold. -The hairdryer was a "hose" and took about 30 minutes to partially dry my hair and at that point I gave up and went to dinner.

The cabin was clean upon arrival, and seemed to be well cared for (included a classic tube TV!) Once we arrived he wanted to know if we wanted the morning or nighttime service. We told him both, as we had heard through the grapevine of family cruisers that if you choose only one, you'll not get fresh towels or very good service. He begrudgingly obliged us. That being said, he did an "Ok" job. Dirty dishes and glasses were left in the room AFTER it being cleaned. I had to wait nearly an hour for extra pillows (and at midnight when you're ready for bed, this is irritating).

First Cruise By: iowa3cruisers
We found our stateroom to be roomy enough for the three of us. Didn't need the shoe organizer that I brought along. All our lotions and potions fit in the mirrored bathroom cabinet and under-counter shelf. We didn't need to buy bottled water, as the tap water tasted fine. And, we didn't have trouble finding our cabin. I only saw three cabin doors that had been decorated for easy identification. The doors and walls are not metal, so could not use the magnets I brought, but didn't need them anyway. Unless you are someone who plans to be out until after 12:30 a.m., the band playing in the Trident Bar directly below this cabin will probably keep you awake. That is my only complaint about this cabin.

Our cabin was a balcony cat. 8B. The cabin was clean with lots of storage room. Our cabin steward kept it clean and made sure we had ice and clean towels. The balcony was fine! We enjoy having a balcony. Its nice for reading and having coffee of course just watching the sea go by. This cabin was on deck 6 mid-ship.

Great Cruise By: CanPan
I was upgraded to a balcony and it truly was amazing. Deck 6, aft. Great location, close to the elevators, and only 2 floors up to all the Lido deck action. Was only one floor down to the shops and such. This was my first balcony and I Would definitely spring for a balcony next time if not under a budget restraint.

Choose the Victory By: RElyn
Balcony cuts off the room size. Still able to move about. This was our first time having a balcolny. I wouldnt spend the extra again. Spend time on deck and save the money. This room is right above the music in the evening.

Cabin 7208
Mar 2015
Our cabin was smaller than we were used to but that is because this time we had a cabin all to ourselves and our kids had their own interior a couple of cabins down the hall. Bliss for one and all. We always get cabins at the back of the ship and have always been very happy there but as we booked so late our options were limited and I am very particular about the level I want to be on. So not only were we up front we were the very first cabin on the port side of the ship. At first I was concerned as immediately outside our balcony is the spot light which obstructs our view to a degree. The Bridge was right above us. But I quickly realized because the Bridge stuck out at this part of the ship we had sunshade and it was fabulous. Our room was always cool and the sun wasn't ever beating down into our room. The color décor could do with an update and the bathroom needed an update, especially the hair dryer, this was horrible, however the shape and style of the room was much better than the new ships. Our cabin Steward, Wayman, was wonderful. We tipped him upon boarding. This is very important so that you know they will take care of you for your trip. We had a problem with our bed on the first night and he took care of it immediately the next day. He knew all our names within the first meeting. There were no chocolates at night time so that was disappointing.

What a joke! By: linnealee
Space wasn't cramped, but bathroom decor was outdated and bright pink. Plenty of storage, but this is an older ship from 2001, but no mini-fridge. Balcony door was actually a door and not a sliding door. TV was old box style, not a flat screen. The lighting panels were messed up in some spots and needs for all of it to be replaced. There is a grate in the door so people were easily heard talking as they walked by and many kids ran down the hall at all hours.

Cabin 7401
Sep 2013
My balcony cabin #7401 was spacious. We had a king bed and a sofa. The walls are thin so it is easy to hear what goes on in the next cabin. walking the hallways I could also pick up noise outside the cabins. The balcony itself is not big but sufficient. One of the balcony chairs recline. The indoor cabin #2446 my mother and son shared was smaller with 2 twin beds and no sofa. It still had enough walking space. Carnival victory cabins do not have mini fridges. The stewards clean the cabins twice a day.

Cabin 6395
May 2012
Our cabin was an 8B balcony, cabin 6395. We found it a little smaller than other Carnival ships - no room for even one night stand with the bed in King Size configuration - but other wise quite nice. Bathroom was larger than we've seen before too.

Great Port Intensive Cruise By: racingraysswimmom
Bathroom good size with nice storage behind mirror. Closet and drawers plentiful. Location good for getting to all areas of ship. Typical balcony size. 3rd person accomodations will be a cot, not a converted sofa bed.

We were concerned about this stateroom as it appeared to be underneath a bar, but thankfully we heard nothing. The room was excellent and the steward Rio was supeerb. He made us beautiful animals every night with the towels, astounding!!!!

Room was quiet except for the occasional people wandering the halls after the bars closed. Room could use more shelf space, night table, and refrigerator.

First Time Cruisers on Carnival Victory By: finally_goin_cruisin
7408 - plenty of closet, drawers and storage; great balcony and views; can feel when ship is docking and when sea is rough; hallway noise not easily heard; 7410 - hallway noise is easily heard; can feel when ship is docking; the room was warm even after adjustments were supposedly made - fan not blowing hard enough

We booked our cabin to be between the two main elevators to avoid some of the noise from kids in the hall and it seemed to work. Great view off the balcony. Adequate closet space. Not crazy about the pink color scheme in the bathroom. Plenty of hot water for showers!! Our room had a couch as well as a king bed.

Cabin 6268
Feb 2010
6268 was nice - it was by the elevators toward the front. It was not that quite although I slept good (I think the seasickness pill I take every night helps) my DH thought it was a little noisy at night. Loved the room loved Marcus the steward.

Great all around from the bathroom, to bed, to balcony.  Hallway was noisy during the late night hours but what can you expect on a "Fun Ship?"
