Carnival Victory is the third of the five Destiny-class cruise ships. Like all members of the Destiny class other than the lead ship, which was refitted and renamed Carnival Sunshine in 2013, she is a modified version of that lead ship, and is therefore sometimes referred to as a Triumph-class cruise ship, in an allusion to the second member of the Destiny class, Carnival Triumph.

Along with Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory is operated by Carnival Cruise Line. The ship was... Read more

Carnival Victory is the third of the five Destiny-class cruise ships. Like all members of the Destiny class other than the lead ship, which was refitted and renamed Carnival Sunshine in 2013, she is a modified version of that lead ship, and is therefore sometimes referred to as a Triumph-class cruise ship, in an allusion to the second member of the Destiny class, Carnival Triumph.

Along with Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory is operated by Carnival Cruise Line. The ship was launched in 2000 as one of the largest cruise ships at that time. Built by Fincantieri at its Monfalcone shipyard in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, northern Italy, she was christened by Mary Frank, wife of Howard Frank, the then Vice-Chairman of Carnival Cruise Line. She boasts more than 500 veranda cabins, a nine-deck atrium with four glass elevators, a three-deck "Caribbean lounge" with seating for 1,500 for Vegas-style shows such as "Livin in America" and "Vroom", and a total capacity of 3,400 passengers and 1,000 crew members.

Layout

Carnival Victory is themed to depict the different oceans and seas of the world but is structurally identical to her sister ship, Carnival Triumph. The Triumph-class ships are closely related to the earlier Destiny-class, but differ from Carnival Destiny in the addition of extra balcony cabins on their Lido decks and various changes to placement and architecture of public areas. There are three large pools: King of the Seas, Triton, and Sirens, all including whirlpools in the immediate area. There is a 214-foot-long (65 m) "Twister" waterslide that ends next to the "King of the Seas" pool. The "Serenity Adult Only Retreat" is located next to the waterslide entrance. There is a kids' pool near Camp Carnival. The ship's atrium is green from top to bottom and has four glass elevators. There are two main dining rooms, named the Atlantic and the Pacific, and both offer the same menu.

More than half of Carnival Victory's cabins have an ocean view, and 60% of these have a balcony. Twenty-five cabins are wheelchair accessible. Penthouse suites are 345 sq ft (32.1 m2); suites are 275 sq ft (25.5 m2); ocean view cabins are 185 sq ft (17.2 m2); interior cabins are 185 sq ft (17.2 m2).

In late 2007, Carnival Victory underwent a refit which included the installation of Carnival's Seaside Theater for the midship pool, the sushi bar in the South China Sea Club casino, and some other minor changes. Some of her features are a nine-story atrium, four pools, numerous dining options, various entertainment options, a casino, and a spa.

Carnival Victory underwent Carnival's FunShip 2.0 refurbishment in 2015. Additions include the Alchemy Bar, Seuss at Sea, SKYBOX Sports Bar, and The Taste Bar.

In January 2018, Carnival Victory underwent a refit which included a renovated Deli, new Cherry on Top (candy store), RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, BlueIguana Cantina, Guy's Burger Joint, Bonsai Sushi Express, and new staterooms. The new cabin types include: Scenic Ocean View rooms and Scenic Grand Ocean View rooms, as well as Captain's Suites.

Service

Prior to 2013, Carnival Victory sailed from San Juan, offering seven-day Southern Caribbean cruises visiting San Juan, St. Thomas, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Maarten.

In early 2013, Carnival Victory replaced Carnival Destiny in Miami doing four- and five-day cruises. Carnival Valor replaced Carnival Victory in San Juan.

In February 2016, Carnival Victory replaced the Carnival Sensation in Port Canaveral. Its routes include 3 and 4 night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas and Freeport. The Carnival Sensation took over for the Victory in Miami doing 4 and 5 day cruises. In November 2016 the Victory returned to Miami to take over for the Carnival Fantasy. The Fantasy moved to Mobile, AL.
