Carnival Victory is a Triumph-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. It was launched in 2000. Some of its features include a nine-story atrium, four pools, numerous dining options, various entertainment options, a casino, and a spa. It is structurally identical to its sister ship, Carnival Triumph. The Triumph Class ships are closely related to the earlier Destiny Class, but differ from the Carnival Destiny in the addition of extra balcony cabins on their Lido decks and various changes to placement and architecture of public areas. Carnival Victory is themed to depict the different oceans and seas of the world. Carnival Victory sails from either Barbados or San Juan offering 7-day Southern Caribbean cruises visiting San Juan, St. Thomas, Dominica, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, and St. Maarten. In late 2007, Carnival Victory underwent a refit which included the installation of Carnival's Seaside Theater for the midship pool.
