Carnival Victory

Review Summary

The Carribean cruise on Carnival Victory delivered on the entertainment, exhuberant passengers, and good service. The Lido buffet always offered a reliable set of options though nothing will be receiving a Michelin award. The crew were always helpful and not pushy. The furnishings in the cabin could be fresher. The adult area should be expanded to accommodate more guests and the no children rule should be more stringently enforced.

dining should go 1 hour later. the deli should be open 24 hours instead of the pizza place. a full breakfast should be available via room service.
