    Carnival Victory Review - 1/17 - 1/24/2010

    [quote name='travelqueen555']We were in a balcony cabin 1055 on the Panarama deck - great location. We brought four bottles of wine on board, two each, no problem. Had a bottle of Captain Morgan wrapped securely in our checked luggage. Again no problem. We also ordered the 5 bottle wine package from Carnival for dinners. On the last night we still had one bottle left of the wine we carried on, we took it to the dining room to share with friends, and paid the $7.50 corkage fee - better than going to waste. Don't forget to bring your own corkscrew.[/QUOTE] i am SOOO glad I found your post! We just upgraded to 1055, very excited :)

    How long to walk the ship??

    I agree but I also do not want to waste 2 hrs a day trying to get everywhere. I had the opportunity to switch to a cabin that was midship instead of at the very front and I was wondering if it was worth it.

    Upgrade or not??

    So I called carnival today, I can upgrade to the LIDO deck, room 9293 from 6207. What do you guys think? It would cost 140.00 to do it. My hubby says NO, we will stay in whatever room they gave us and have a blast!!! I am all about convenience!

    How long to walk the ship??

    Are you serious????? How long does it take to walk it? I am willing to call and pay more to switch my room!
  8. Okay so we got our room today...we are in 6207, which is all the way up at the front of the ship. My question is, how long does it take to walk from one end to the next?? I dont want to have to walk 10 min to eat!!! That is my biggest concern for my room, HOW FAR TO THE FOOD! haha.

    Soo confused on what to do!

    Thanks! We have never been to any of these islands. It is my husband and I and we are VERY laid back! If we were on an island for a week, we would be on the beach for 5 days and then shop around for 2 days! At first, I thought I needed to see each and every interesting thing on each island, hince why I booked all the excursions. Then, I got to thinking about it and thought that I KNOW we will hate to be told where to go, when to leave, and how to get there for 6 days. I think 3 or 4 excursions will be great, but not 6! So now I am at the point where I need to determine which islands to do excursions, and what islands to go on our own!!!
