Default Carnival Victory - What's New?

Did anyone sail on the Victory since it left drydock a couple weeks ago? I'm wondering if you noticed any upgrades, refurbishments, etc? Sailing on her this coming Sunday.

The most major upgrade it got was the Seaside Theatre, the big outdoor TV/movie screen. Someone on another board also said it now has wireless internet throughout all the cabins and also a refurb of the spa.

Just came back from Victory and it was great. The large screen tv was available and on all day. I watched the Indianapolis - New England game, but they had a satellite problem and they were not receiving the the Mon night game Pitt vs Balt.
Jorge Solano was the cruise director and we all really liked him. His assistant, Kelly, was also very good.
The chinese window was not open all week and I was surprised. Also there was a small sushi bar near the premium coffee and gelato stand. Gelato was fantastic and I loved the premium coffee.
The Victory is truly a beautiful ship and everyone tries very hard.

Great! I'm looking forward to the big screen! I am very hopeful they will show the Florida State v. Florida game on Saturday - I will be in heaven. What a fantastic way to watch a football game, relaxing, drinking beer, etc.

Happy sailing to you in 94 days! I wish mine was that short as I have 199 days to go. On the bright side When you leave I'll be half way from now till ours.

I just sailed the Victory, returning yesterday. The big screen was awesome - picture quality, sound, etc. I hope they add it to every ship!

I just added a few pictures to the gallery. I realize the Seaside Theater photos are somewhat grainy - it was an overcast day. But it truly had a great picture.
