Carnival Victory

July 2016 - Carnival Victory to Caribbean - Bahamas

too outdated of a ship

This was the 4th cruise taken on a Carnival ship, unfortunately it was on an outdated ship.

 

The staff was wonderful, but the food bars weren't able to handle the influx of people as quickly as needed.  The 24 hour pizza palace had people constantly waiting to just receive a slice of pizza.  Asking for a salad also was a waiting experience.  Again, this was the 4th on Carnival so it was totally unexpected to deal with this.  

 

Not enough choices for vegetarians nor younger children.  Unfortunately, it seemed that the food was colder than expected, maybe it was because it was being prepared in advance of the bars opening.  Like the breakfast items were cold by the time the bar actually opened at 7am.  

 

2 of the pools were being painted, serviced while we were on the cruise.  1 was down the embarkation day for a long period, then the other pool was down being repaired, painted etc on the at sea day.  That meant the water slide wasn't in use either until the pool was fixed.  This required too many small children using the hot tub pools instead.

ymew719's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - Very hard to get the locals to tell you other spots to see other than the main attractions. Too many folks at the markets that will crowd you while just trying to walk around. Almost a fall hazard when you get off the boat and start walking around the town. We saw people sleeping under the booths at the Nassau Market, and since every booth is very close to the other very easy to step on someone and fall.
Port Canaveral, Florida - I strongly recommend using off site parking. We were able to find a location within a 5 min drive to the terminal area, and we were dropped off at the door and they were waiting for us to return.
Carnival Victory Carnival Victory - This is an older ship, even the staff will tell you that. Not the best one to judge all the Carnival line by.
