This was my first cruise vacation. I have spoken with people who have traveled on Carnival and other cruise lines, so I had a good idea of what to expect in terms of accommodations, entertainment and service, etc.Overall, I would rate the Victory as a mediocre vacation option. The rooms were a nice size and four adults slept comfortably, albeit, tightly.Our room steward was ok. It took several reminders to have him bring extra robes.The food reminded me a lot of the college cafeteria. You can tell Carnival is more concerned withquantity over quality. The best bet for dinner is the actual sit down meal versus the alternative dining option.Evening entertainment is good.... lots of shows and comedians... Day-time entertainment was not quite as extensive as we thought it would be.The ports of call were a nice mix - Cozumel, Grand Caymen and Ocho Rios.Take advantage of the shore tours - it willmake your stay much easier and safer.Here is what I think makes all the difference is the quality of the cruise... the other passengers. It appears as if many people took advantage of the bargains that are available, that would typically not take a cruise. If you are looking for more upscale crowd, this is not the ship for you. If you want a ship that is a floating Las Vegas, than the Victory is for you.Best - Ports of Call Worst - Overall Tackiness
