I was actually on this same cruise, on the same floor in room 6434 - I know exactly what ajeff is talking about. I heard everything she heard & it was awful. And my room was located on the opposite side. I actually had to go out to the balcony to sleep b/c it was the only way I could. I totally expected a party crowd - they do not bother me - but I expected that crowd in the common areas on the ship - not in the sleeping quarters. There is no excuse for the staff of Carnival to allow that to happen. There should be some consequences to those type of actions. Like a $250 "noise fee" - just like they have a $250 "clean up fee" if you smoke in your room or balcony.
Our room was not clean either. There was 5 inches of dust on the television set & bobby pins & and an empty can of shaving cream on our counter from the previous guests. Our balcony had bottle caps, cigarette butts & candy wrappers all over it - which I had to clean so I would not step on them.
For a ship that was just dry docked for clean up - they did a really crappy job.
On elegant night I ordered the Caesar Salad only to find a live moving beetle of some sort right in the middle of the plate. They did comp me a bottle of wine - the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu.
The ice cream machines were overrun by kids without a parent present & the kids were leaving the levers down & ice cream was running all over the floor - which was full of water - then the kids would walk through it & now the floors have sticky ice cream footprints all over them.
This ship reminded me of a zoo. Funny thing is, besides the noise when I was trying to sleep - the college kids didn't bother me at all. It was the little kids without supervision that were rude & unruly.
I have friends who have been on the Breeze & Conquest who were also on this Victory cruise - and they said it is like a night & day comparison. If I ever decide to do a Carnival Cruise again - it will NOT be on the Victory.
