Carnival Victory Cruise Review

In the past 14 months I have sailed on the Victory twice. Once in the Caribbean and now a trip into Canada. The ship is comfortable, it is nicely maintained but this trip was a major disappointment for me. The reasons for this disappointment is the decline in service from the employees, I attribute that to the fact that a 15% gratuity is already put in the price of your cruise and they do not have to earn that any longer. A second reason is the shows in the evening, Carnival has not changed their floor shows in fourteen months. They remained the same and for the most part were not worth seeing again with one exception the Illusionists. The magic show is exceptional, high marks, even for a repeat. The food on board has declined, in the past the food was on the level of a high end restaurant, now it is a good meal that you could prepare at home. One of the pleasures that I enjoyed on the 1st Victory cruise was the piano bar and sing along, it was for a lot of cruisers favorite, evident by the number of people found there. Carnival needs to see that and move it to a larger room so it can be enjoyed by more people. My disappointment with Carnival is hard to put a finger on but it is a feeling in that I have enjoyed Carnival in the past. Recommend for 1st time cruiser but if you been on Victory before don’t return!
