7265 OS was very well appointed. Did not smell bad. Lots of storage and very roomy. Balcony had 4 chairs and a table. Couch is strange looking, but sits well. Small chair was stained. Bathroom was clean and good repair. No missing tiles or mildew.
Our 21 year old son had an inside cabin on the 8th deck. His cabin was clean and yes the bathroom was pink. It was clean and mildew free. 8341 Read entire member review >>
I've heard that cabins can be hit or miss right now, and they did delay our sailing to complete some in-service upgrades to certain cabins. Our cabin had been refreshed - we had a standard ocean suite, but it had the new TV, countertops and bathroom. It looked pretty good, although the couch was weird and uncomfortable and they haven't replaced the wood for the cabinets and closets, which was dinged up in our room and probably is in all of them.
The bathroom generally worked well, with good water pressure, a perfectly fine layout and strong suction on the toilet. I couldn't quite stand up straight in the shower (I'm 6'4"), but for a ship I think it was better than average. Pretty sure I had more trouble on the Emerald Princess, and I've been on older ships that were even worse. Our bathroom did have that weird smell that others have mentioned - I thought it smelled like sewage but my wife described it more like a beauty salon. (Sewage makes more sense if you ask me, but I get what she meant; it was almost more of a burnt hair/chemical smell.) Read entire member review >>
We stayed in cabin 7270 an ocean suite. Room was fairly large two nice size closets, nice couch and small chair both dated. The cabin did have a dressing area that was nice and a separate bathroom. Note if you have any mobility issues the shower is also a jacuzzi tub so it is a very large step over to get into the shower. There is also No Helping Handle so it makes it a bit tricky.

First time to stay in a suite. Would highly recommend it. It is about 50% bigger with a jetted tub, bigger bathroom, more storage space and just more room in general. The balcony is also about 50% bigger than a standard balcony room with 4 chairs and small table. Read entire member review >>
What a superb room that easily and with considerable amounts of space accomodated three of us with ease. The king bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The "living" area was the most we have ever had on a cruise. The balcony was almost large enough to play rugby on and the bathroom had marble tiled floors. Stateroom 7272 is forward on the port side of the ship near elevators and stairs which made access to other parts of the ship simple. Again, anyone who complains about rooms on Deck 7 of the Victory is simply looking for an excuse to complain about something. Read entire member review >>
Room was compact but well organized. Big mirror as we walked in, then a bar and refrigerator. Big screen tv which never seemed to work well with the remote. Got the batteries changed but no real improvement. Had a couch, a table, a chair, a kingsized bed, a vanity with large mirrors, two medium closets, a bathroom with a jacuzzi and copper tiles, full mirror and toilet. There were medicine cabinets and more space than we had ever had before in drawers throughout the suite. The balcony could fit about 5 chairs and there were panels for privacy between rooms but we could see the other neighbors if their lights were on and they would reflect on their window, there was a slot where we could see. They were quiet and respectful as we were too. Read entire member review >>
Smelled like sewage. The room was missing some of the paneling over the overhead lights, the dresser's middle drawer was broken, nothing had been dusted, hair in the tub and grosser the magazines that they put in the room were sticky. No welcome basket, carnival does not seem to care about this ship. The doors had opened vents, which was nice, cause I really loved hearing my nieghbors across the hall calling each other names and fighting until wee hours of the morning.

Our ocean suite was mid ship on the 7th floor. It was more spacious than we expected. The bed was comfy and the room was clean. The bathroom was roomy with a vanity/makeup table/desk in front of it. They offer a lot of closet space, a dresser, sofa, table, mini bar, fridge. The room was the best part of our cruise. Read entire member review >>
We had rooms 7263 and 7265 next to one another and we loved that we could open the door on the balcony and share one long balcony with one another. This was awesome. Our suite had ample room and I loved the large tub/shower in the bathroom. We had a king size bed and a sofa bed with a roll away bed too. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. The roll away bed was the least comfortable though and it sagged in the middle. I felt bad for our son as he had to sleep on a sagging bed for 4 nights as we all had more comfortable sleeping arrangments. He never complained though, but perhaps for the 4th person in a ocean suite they could have better sleeping arrangements with comfort in mind! Read entire member review >>
We loved cabin 7263! It's in a great location: near the elevators and stairs-but we never heard noise. We loved being toward the front of the ship, convenient to everything. Our suite was very spacious and had lots of storage space. There are two closets, a huge bathroom with granite vanity and a large tub and shower. There is a separate make-up vanity right outside the bathroom. There is a sofa, chair, and coffee table for a sitting area. There is a small refrigerator and a mini bar. There is a double balcony with 3 shares and a table. Our king bed was so comfortable! I wish there were speakers in the cabins and on the balconies. When announcements were made, we had to go to the hall to hear. Read entire member review >>
We enjoyed the large Ocean Suite very much. It is not something that we would normally pay for but this particular sailing had dramatically reduced pricing so we decided to try it. The extra large balcony is nice as is the extra space inside the room. Our area was very quiet Read entire member review >>
