We sailed on the Victory on the 4th of July holiday and we really enjoyed our cruise. It was our 2nd cruise and we had a very nice time. If I had any complaints I would say that I did not like the way the ship was set up, it was very easy to get lost as the floor plan was very cut up. It was hard to get to certain places as you had to go up or down a deck to actually get there. A lot of people commented on it as well. Also, it seemed like the Lido deck buffet facilities were not big enough to accommodate the number of people on the ship as there were always super long lines for food and it was not worth waiting so long so we frequented the deli a lot as it was not quite as busy for some reason which was good for us as the food was great!! Don't get me wrong, the buffet food was great when you finally got to it. Dining room service and food were excellent and the shows were great as well. I did notice an odor coming from the hallway where our room was and the hallways always seemed very warm and humid like the a/c was not working but our room (interior) was nice and comfortable. Had a great time at Key West but was disappointed with Cozumel, very touristy but the excursion was fun. All in all a nice cruise but I do not think I will cruise the Victory again due to the ship setup. Not a dig against Carnival as we love their cruises, just not on this particular ship.

Deli was great and not as busy as the other Lido eating areas. Also, dining room was great for breakfast to avoid the lines! Also, make sure you have a ship map on you at all times so you do not get lost!!
