I certainly hope they do something about that "puke" green which is everywhere.

The Victory is only going to be in dry dock a few weeks so probably nothing too major getting done.

They already added the big screen back in either late 07 or early 08. Probably just a standard every few years overhaul - replacing carpet and that type thing along with mechanical maintenance that needs to be done in drydock.

Default victory refurb

i was told by carnival that the usual drydock is less than a week, so i was told that this was a major one because it was almost 2 weeks. i noticed that the Facination had "Carnival Water Works" added to the ship. I was hoping that we might see that added to the Victory before our cruise!!! another question, i cant figure out how you list your past cruises like i see everyones when i check posts... any help would be appreciated

Standard dry dock length is 2 weeks. The ship may not be in the dry dock that long but they are out of service that long due to sail times to and from the docks location and then return to a normal cruise schedule.

standard dry-dock is 2 weeks. Dry-docks for major refurbishments usually take 4 weeks or longer.

I'll be on the November 21 cruise, the first one after the drydock. So if the entire ship doesn't look brand new, it will ruin my entire cruise and when I get back I will complain and demand all my money back. <g>

I happen to like the Victory green.
To me, it's more reminiscent of "OZ" than "puke"!!

I cruised the VICTORY twice. It was the favorite Carnival ship of the lady I was cruising with, so I said nothing about my personal dislike of it. It certainly didn't ruin my cruise at all. I was just commenting on the coloring (particularly in the Atrium bar area). I have more dislike for the deck layout of this class than anything else.

The only thing I have read for sure is this: The Punchliner Comedy Club is scheduled for the 11/21/10 sailing on the Victory. At this time no plans for the Future cruise desk.

We are just off her. THis is just my opinion. While keeping it positive I also have to keep it real. I have never seen a ship more in need of refurbishment. There were holes in the "linoleum tiles" at the adult pool. Have the color was rubbed off around the hot tubs and pool tiles, there were railings sanded down with big globs of tar where they touched, mildew in the bathrooms, etc THe benches around the pool were down to the unshiny (official term of course) wood.
Normally, I am not one who notices this stuff but it was hard to miss on this ship.
I even thought, but could be wrong, that the pics in the stairwells looked like they were faded a different color where they met. It could be their design but it didn't look like it to me.
I was seriously hoping to see pictures of "after" because there was so much that needed done, I wondered what they would get to.
Didn't affect my fun, but it was the first time I was on a cruise ship where it was so glaringly obvious. The other thing I noticed was that the windows along the promenade were so dirty it was hard to see out them. We didn't have any rain but they may have the week before. They didn't clean them the whole cruise.
