5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 07, 2015
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8355

Great quick getaway with friends. Definitely an older ship...crews a bit less attentive now that gratuities are automatic but we were generally satisfied with service and gave our cabin steward a bit more.  Generally pleased with food options. Chopsticks was a great success and should be available for more hours. Food was freshly cooked and provided healthier options.  The line was usually quite long.  The entertainment on Lido was lacking. What happened to the signature Caribbean bands? What happened to music playing as you departed a port? The fellow that played the piano in the Irish Bar incredible and the band that played in the casino was great. VAROOM was quite good as well.

Chopsticks was quite good. Should be open longer. Late night option of pizza is limited. And no wings in the sports bar or anywhere else?

VAROOM, Irish Bar performer and all male casino bar band were great. Lido deck was lacking compared to other carnival cruises.

Older ship. Would like a few more options on newer ships for shorter triips.

Cabin / Stateroom

Clean and balcony option was good. Would like a small refrigerator.

Ship Tip

We're were in cabin 8355 and apparently right under Lido and lots of banging and noise that sounded like kitchen service. Still it provided quick access to Lido which had its advantages.
