It is not terribly old. It was the ship calss before they began the Conquest class. It is not as big as the Conquest class, but still fairly large. I can't give you details because I can't seem to get into Carnivals website right now.
yes, it is a nice ship. The drawback being one less set of buffet lines, so the buffet area can get a little crowded. And there is no Supper Club. But other than that she has all that you need.
Well from all I know is a good ship, the mother of a good friend always was telling me that she did not like carnival and keep asking me why I was so carnival cruise line addict.
She is diabetic so she has to watch everything she eats so she keep telling me that Princess cruises was the cruise line for her…
Then as a gift, my friend pay her a cruise in the carnival Victory and now she thinks different of carnival, she liked so much she even consider to travel again with Carnival because of this ship… so it most be a good one
As for the info in the carnival Victory:
Carnival Victory entered service in 2000, according to the Carnival Web site, and she is approximately 102,000 gross tons. She's the third (and last) in the Destiny class, which also includes Carnival Destiny and Carnival Triumph.
We were onboard last year and found her beautiful. The decor is not nearly as garish as it looks in online photos. We thought her to be a nice ship and we'd definitely consider a return.
If you go on vacationstogo.com and follow through cruise lines than, Carnival, than Victory you will find a page that tells all about the ship. This is a great site.
I was on the Victory in Dec '05 and loved it. The ships layout is awsome. I booked on the Triumph which is a sister ship of the Victory last Sept. and booked again this Dec on the Triumph.
