About Carnival Cruise Lines
The Carnival Corporation is the largest cruise company in the world and operates several different brands. The cruise line ‘Carnival Cruise Lines’ has the largest fleet in the group with 24 vessels. The fleet sails almost exclusively in the seas of North America and the Caribbean. For Carnival Cruise Lines the guest's experience of the ships is at least as important as the visited destinations. The concept is comparable to a club holiday and convinces an active, mostly younger audience. The ships offer a colorful world of experience including high-quality food, award-winning entertainment and excellent child and youth care. On board you will find mostly Americans.
The Carnival Victory entered service in August 2000 and has been refurbished in 2015. It is a Destiny Class ship, but has one more deck than the original ship of the series. It has a length of about 273 meters and accommodates up to 2,754 passengers.
Atmosphere on board
Carnival Cruise Lines emphasizes the entertainment onboard and yes: it is very difficult not to be entertained on board. But this does not mean that passengers will feel disturbed by wildly partying people all day. There is enough room to relax and enjoy some quietness. The dress-code reflects this concept: casual attire is perfect for almost any situation. Only for dinner in the main restaurants a more elegant style is recommended. There are even one or two festive evenings, where evening dress is required, but you may easily escape this when not dining in the à la carte restaurants. Though guests come from all over the world, usually most people on board are US citizens.
The design of all staterooms is modern and comfortable. You will find all amenities you would expect from a good hotel room. With about 17 sqm all staterooms are very spacious. If you prefer even more private space the Premium Balcony staterooms provide about 25.5 sqm and the Grand Suites almost 32 sqm.
Food and Beverages
At meal times, guests may choose from a variety of buffets or dine at the restaurant with friendly service. For dinner, the main restaurant offers two sessions or an open table time. For a fee, there is a specialty restaurant on board. The Seafood Shack serves traditional New England fish and seafood. There is also a free 24-hour room service which will bring you some small treats to the cabin.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
As Carnival Cruise Lines calls them fun ships you can be sure that you will be entertained very well. Las Vegas style shows in the grand show lounge, thrilling games in the casino, freshly mixed cocktails in one of the lounges, your talent shown in the Karaoke bar or on the dancefloor to live music - Expect it all and get it all.
Of course the Carnival Victory also offers many ways to relax, such as the spa area where a wide choice of treatments is offered. For those who feel the urge to move the fitness area and sporting facilities are great choices.
The great cuisine, diversified entertainment options as well as the appealing and modern interior make the Carnival Victory a destination in itself. This ship demonstrates impressively what is possible on cruise ships nowadays.

Cruise in one sentence
- Lower price for alcohol
- the food was good but not great in the restaurant. The buffet food better than restaurant. Service in restaurant excellent, bars just ok....
- dinner was always very good. Maybe we wished to have some more different kind of music for dancing besides salsa/merenque/bachata. Music between band playing could be something else.
- It was too noicy!Music everywhere can be nice, but it was too loud and you could hardly talk to eachother
