I'll be back with more of my Caribbean Vacation very soon
This is not a "complete" tour of the Carnival Victory.
These are only the areas of the ship that I visited on my cruise.
THE CARNIVAL VICTORY!!
Deck 1- Riviera Deck - Passenger cabins
Deck 2 - Main Deck - Passenger cabins
When you enter the ship, you are in the Lobby- on deck 3
The lobby bar (deck 3)
Lobby ceiling - I loved the green glass!
Glass elevators in the lobby
Entrance to the Atlantic Dining room just off the lobby area
Inside the Atlantic Dining Room
The Shore excursion desk in the lobby. This is where you book shore excursions for the islands you visit.
Guest Services desk in the lobby. This is just like the front desk at a hotel.
Seating in the lobby with the big staircase up to deck 4
There are entrances to the balcony levels of the theater on decks 4 and 5
The balcony in the Caribbean Theater
Our favorite spot to sit to watch all the shows in the Caribbean Theater. Balcony level, straight back from the stage.
Going up to Deck 4 - Atlantic Deck
Above the Lobby on Deck 4 are the Photo Shops. This is where to go to look at and buy any pictures the ship photographers take of you
The library is on deck 4. They have board games and books you can check out during your cruise.
A statue in glass in the Library. It was about 3 feet tall. It's probably carved out of solid ivory and worth a bazillion dollars.
Also on deck 4 was the Cigar Bar, but you can't smoke in there. It was a beautiful big room that I thought was wasted space. We never saw anyone in here.
The bar at the Cigar bar
Behind the Cigar bar was the Internet Cafe. For a fee you can use the internet
Also on deck 4 are the stairs to enter the balcony of the Caribbean Theater
Lets go up to deck 5 - Promenade deck
I didn't take any pictures in the shops. You can see them on the other side of the glass railings.
In this one, you can also see the photo shops below on deck 4
Looking over the railing down onto the lobby bar. There was a band behind the bar every night, and sometimes during the day.
The Candy Store - called Formalities.
Also on deck 5 is the casino
We loved the casino bar - called the Trident Bar. We would stop here for a smoke several times a day when we walked to and from our activities.
The seahorse barstools at the Trident bar
Next to the Trident Bar was a small stage. There was a band playing here every night, and most days too.
There is a place on the Promenade deck where you can buy yummy desserts
The Caspian Wine Bar
The Piano Bar
The Red & Black Lounge
The Arctic Nightclub
Deck 6 - The Upper Deck - Passenger Cabins
Deck 7 - The Empress Deck - Passenger Cabins
Deck 8 - The Verandah Deck - Passenger Cabins
Lets stop off at Deck 8 - Verandah Deck and take a tour of our cabins.
We'll start with inside cabin 8426 at the back of the ship.
Please excuse the "lived-in" look of the cabin. It was my kids cabin and these pics were taken on the last night of the cruise, just before they started packing to go home.
Walking in the door, there were closets on the left, and the bathroom to the right.
Walking further into the cabin, and looking toward the right
And looking to the left
My cabin was the "Premium Vista Balcony" cabin 8428. Also known as an aft-wrap.
It's located in the back corner of the ship, shown here with the black arrow
aft-wrap 8428 is at the very end of the hallway
inside cabin 8426 is on the left side in this pic
This map might help with the placement of our cabins
8428 was a fabulous cabin, with the best balcony EVER!
Looking back at the door after walking in. There were 2 closets on one side. The safe was on a shelf in the first closet.
The balcony door was behind the smaller curtain on the other side of the TV.
The door on the left was the bathroom
And the best part, the balcony!!
This part of the balcony was around the side of the ship.
And now up one floor to Deck 9 -The Lido Deck
(I didn't get a picture of the Lido deck sign!!)
At the back of the ship is a pool, 2 hot tubs, and plenty of places to sit or lay out
Closer view of the pool
The waterfall and statue by the back pool
The pizza place
The pool bar
The ice cream machines
Moving toward the front of the ship on deck 9
The big buffet area. The deli and the Chinese place are along the sides of the buffet
On the other side of the buffet area
Just past these tables is another pool bar (on the left)
The pool bar
On the other side of the pool bar is the pool
And the hot tubs
The big screen TV
Opposite the big screen TV is tiered seating with lounge chairs
Looking at the big screen from the tiered seating
Above the Lido Deck, and behind the big screen is the jogging track
Getting closer to the whale tail
One floor above the jogging track is the mini golf course. It was very windy up here too
Mini golf at the base of the whale tail
Looking up at the whale tail. The big one is the real thing. The small one is a feature of the mini golf course
Looking over the rail from the mini golf course
Next we'll go over near the top of the waterslide - Serenity deck
The view from the other side
Behind the waterslide entrance is the Adults only Serenity deck
Inside the serenity deck are these cool showers. You can try them all
Places to hang out on Serenity Deck
Looking down at the hot tubs on the lower level of Serenity Deck
And that's the end of my tour of the Carnival Victory!
