It is hard to say whether you will like the Victory or not. To say you didn't like the Miracle "because it wasn't as nice as Royal Caribbean", is ambiguous. What exactly was it you didn't like? The lay out of the ship, size of the ship, the entertainment, the food, the service? Further we don't know what ships with Royal Caribbean you've been on. There are certain Royal Caribbean ships that will compare with Carnival ships, and then others will not. It looks like by your cruise ticker you've already booked the Victory. I really see no reason you shouldn't like the Victory if you keep an open mind.
