The ship had a wonderful "under the sea" atmosphere. The common areas were really nice and clean.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was good, not great. My discovery of the deli was the best. The pastrami with fresh mozzarella was a hit with me and my family.


5 out of 5
I loved the fact that we all had things to do throughout the day. My husband had fun at bingo while I sunbathed on the deck and my daughter spent lots of time with new friends in Camp Carnival.

Children's Programs

Great program! My daughter had a blast!

Staff was always courteous and helpful

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I loved the layout of the ship. I quickly learned about the areas that I wanted to go to, especially the casino and shops on the Promenade deck.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Space was great. There were a lot of storage areas, great for a family with dozen pairs of shoes!

Halifax offered a lot of shopping and dining venues.

Not a lot to see. We did not do an excursion, but walked throughout the city. Lots of shops and I did find a great coffee place.

Pros: The variety of activities

Cons: Crowded Lido deck

Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!
