  3. Carnival Victory
We enjoyed the cruise, however the ship is beginning to show its age. There were a number of odd smells on a few decks and leaks in the theatre. The dining was excellent and the crew were all friendly. Our table staff new our names by dessert on the first night and remembered what we like thereafter. If I went again I would choose a cruise that had fewer children. They were often unattended and rude, though that has nothing to do with the cruise staff. I would certainly cruise with Carnival again, though I would be more careful about the size of the ship and whether it was geared towards adults or families. I was also not happy about the fact that the casino was in the middle of the ship and had very poor ventilation. The smell of smoke in that area was horrendous. The band in the casino, however, was excellent.

Nice trip, old ship
