Traveled As: Family (young children)

My second cruise on the Victory. Ship is showing its age; Lido deck real worn\, water slide out of date\, common areas\, pealing paint\, worn carpeting Crew was excellent; they really tried hard;
I worry that what I cannot see\, major machinery is also very worn. the ship will break down. Beds in cabin big improvement..pillow top. Except for lobster/ shrimp night (awesome)there was no steak night with a premium steak ( Norwegian was standard every night. Salmon excelent\, shrimp cocktail excellent; desserts boring (Norwegian had Creme Bruille); Best deal was the pay for dessert coffee bar..$2.50 for a huge peice of excellent cheese cake. Also excellent was the Kids Club\, camp Carnival could not be any better. Thank you Stephany.

Pros: Relqxed\, Safe.

Cons: Food getting Boreing\, Entertainment Poor compared to Norwegian Cruse

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Ship Quality
As above. ship needs a remodel
Food and Dining
lobster / Shrimp excelent; steaks need upgrade
Cabin / Stateroom
Beds perfect\, cabin Clean quiet 7409\, room service good but slow\, when compared to Norwegian
Service and Staff
They bend over backwards . Thank yo Dan waiter table 662
REal poor compared to Norwegian who had \"Blue Men\"\, Cirqus Stole\, other head liners..
Children's Programs
CAMP CARNIVAL kids 10-12 a winner\, well staffed and the kids loved the counsilors. Stephany did a great job. Night Owl Programs\, 10pm-1Am at $8 per hour was excellent. Saw kids as young as 3 who loved it. Teens loved their O2 club..
