Carnival Victory

Carnival Victory 15th Vessel in "Fun Ship" Fleet

The 2,758-passenger, 102,000-ton Carnival Victory is the third "Destiny-class" vessel and the 15th "Fun Ship" in Carnival's fleet. The 893-foot-long cruise ship features 13 passenger decks, 18 bars and lounges, and 1,379 staterooms -- 62 per cent of which offer an ocean view or private balcony. Other amenities include a children's activity area and wading pool, a Nautica Spa health club and salon, 9,000-square-foot casino, sports bar, duty-free shopping area and four swimming pools. In addition to two main dining rooms, the ship features a patisserie, two-deck-high poolside restaurant offering casual alternatives for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as 24-hour pizza.

Carnival Victory will operate a program of four- and five-day voyages from New York to the Canadian Maritimes Aug. 31 - Sept. 23. Following its New York sailings, the Carnival Victory will operate a series of one- to five-night voyages from Newport News, VA, and Charleston, SC, before repositioning to Miami for a three-day Bahamas cruise departing Oct. 12 and a program of week-long Caribbean voyages beginning Oct. 15.


GUESTS CAN 'SAIL' THE SEVEN SEAS ON BOARD CARNIVAL VICTORY

MIAMI -- On the new Carnival Victory, which debuted August 18, guests may immerse themselves in the mystique of Neptune's realm through an interior design that celebrates the world's most famous bodies of water.

"The colors of water, how they change from one ocean to another, from moment to moment, gave me an opportunity to create rooms where there is a sense of movement and mystery," said Joe Farcus, Carnival's interior architect. "On the Carnival Victory, it won't be just a vacation, but a voyage to the great oceans of the world."

Oceanic Hall Atrium

AtriumThe voyage begins in Oceanic Hall, the nine-deck atrium located in the center of the ship. The watery theme is captured in shades of turquoise, green, gold and blue, which are repeated in the public rooms and Neptune's Way promenade. The walls are adorned with rich prima vera and Australian walnut wood veneer interspersed with strips of weathered copper, and hand-painted panels swirled in turquoise. Handmade glass-tile mosaics of mermaids, the sea god Neptune and other mythological creatures also are displayed on the atrium walls on different decks.

Capping the Oceanic Hall is an illuminated dome decorated in Tiffany-style glass which carries on the sea theme in underwater colors accented with sparkling chandeliers.

The atrium's carpet is a subtle design of dolphins playing in waves, and uncarpeted areas feature shell stone, which is a black terrazzo with imbedded sea shells producing a mother of pearl effect in indigo, dark blue, green and gold.

An element that is carried throughout the atrium, promenade and other public areas is the recurring image of the seahorse. It is found on the ends of the main stairways in the atrium, supporting shell-stone table tops and leather bar stools on the promenade, and as door handles to the restaurants.

Statues of Neptune stand at either end of the ship's promenade and a third sculpture is a central feature of the Trident Bar, located along the promenade.

Large, colorful panels created by Italian artist Luciano Vistosi adorn the interior walls of Neptune's Way. These custom-made glass panels depict highly stylized, brightly colored sea life. In the ceiling, colorful glass dome replicas of the large atrium dome extend the length of the promenade.

Ocean and seas-themed public rooms

The oceans and seas theme is also carried out in the names and décor of various public rooms on the Carnival Victory, perhaps most artfully demonstrated in the Coral Sea Café and the Virtual Sea game center.

Halfway down the promenade, the Coral Sea Café features museum-like displays of coral in vertical glass cases, some of which are stand-up tables that separate the seating area from the promenade. Beige shell stone is featured on the floor, walls and counter top of the café, which serves specialty coffees, liqueurs and sweets. The ceiling is a latticework of teak beams with cast panels that look like palm fronds, creating the atmosphere of a sophisticated beach cabana.

Entering the Virtual Sea game center is akin to diving into a giant aquarium. The stainless steel walls have been heat-treated to achieve an iridescent bluish-purple color. On the walls are giant undersea creatures -- an angler fish, angel fish, squid and sea anemone -- painted in wild fluorescent colors. Ultraviolet light brings these creatures vibrantly to life, and a myriad of small pyramids painted in fluorescent hues look like shimmering schools of fish. The curved ceiling is done in a special glittery paint to resemble the surface of the water as seen from below.

Among other rooms named for bodies of water are the Adriatic Lounge, Irish Sea Bar, Arctic Dance Club, and Atlantic and Pacific restaurants.


CARNIVAL VICTORY TAKES VARIETY OF EVENING
ACTIVITY OPTIONS TO NEW DEPTHS

MIAMI -- The new Carnival Victory, which debuted August 18, offers a huge array of options for dancing, socializing and evening fun in the form of some 18 bars, lounges and gathering spots all named for famous bodies of water.

Piano SculptureThe logical place to begin a tour of Victory's sea-themed public rooms is at the base of the nine-deck Oceanic Hall which houses the Seven Seas Bar. A perfect rendezvous spot, the Seven Seas provides an excellent people-watching vantage point as well as a chance to enjoy the soothing music of a classical trio or pianist, or to watch sporting events broadcast on a large-screen television behind the bar.

Next stop is the Ionian Room located on Atlantic Deck and named for the Ionian Sea, a section of the Mediterranean between southern Italy and western Greece. Here, the atmosphere is decidedly intimate and clubby, with classical design touches like Doric columns between the windows. Showcases filled with reproductions of ancient Greek vases are scattered around the room, creating a museum-like effect that is enhanced by the wood-veneer walls and rich reddish-brown leather sofas and bar stools. The Ionian Room is a pleasant environment for enjoying a fine cigar and snifter of brandy while gazing at the Aegean-themed murals on the walls.

Also in keeping with the Greek theme is the Aegean Bar, just off the atrium on Promenade Deck. This sports bar celebrates the ancient Olympic Games. Brass-and-stainless-steel columns support stylized athlete arms, treated to look like marble, which hold draped blue silk swags embellished with golden apples (the apple symbolizing another Greek myth, the Judgement of Paris, which caused the Trojan War that began with a voyage to the Aegean Sea). The walls have painted murals showing scenes from the ancient Olympics. Television monitors above the bar broadcast popular sporting events.

From the Aegean Bar, it is only a few steps to the promenade, Neptune's Way, and the Trident Bar located outside the South China Sea Club casino. This bar's centerpiece is an imposing sculpture of four mermaid attendants holding the trident, symbol of Neptune. Live entertainment is provided on an adjacent stage.

The Caspian Sea is a classic wine and caviar bar that takes its air of elegance from the famous L' Hermtage, with rich gold leaf and fancy stonework. Behind the bar is a painting of Czar Nicholas and Alexandra, and the floor is done in a series of marble mosaics of intricate design.

Just around the corner from the wine bar is the Irish Sea Bar. This pub/piano bar is decked out in the verdant colors of the Old Sod, with green leather booths and shamrocks in the carpet design. The mahogany table tops are cream and green, and have microphones built into them for sing-alongs and karaoke. The dome over the piano and several paintings on the walls depict bucolic Irish landscapes, and the atmosphere is one of boisterous good times.

For a change of pace, the Black and Red Seas lounge provides a more subdued scene where live combos play jazz and popular dance music. In keeping with its theme, the whole room is done in black and red, with cone shapes adorning the walls and black and red triangles alternating along the bar.

Anchoring the aft end of the promenade is the Adriatic Lounge. Designed to honor the city of Trieste, Italy, which is on the Adriatic Sea near Monfalcone, where the Carnival Victory was built, the lounge harkens back to the heyday of the 18th-century Holy Roman Empire. Yellow and white predominate, and the main design element is a series of niches around the room containing busts of 18th-century personages. Completing the room is a variety of intricate gypsum moldings in the walls and ceiling, and crystal chandeliers.

What evening tour would be complete without a trip to the discotheque? Club Arctic, themed on the opposites of fire and ice, provides an appropriate venue for "hot times in a cool bar." Cast resin panels with bubbles, cracks and fissures resemble walls of ice reflecting the northern lights cast by fiber optics. Black glass walls sport colorful icicle patterns that are repeated in the floor and ceiling. Hundreds of video monitors ring the room and hover over the bar. The couches are covered in a fabric with a unique pattern of penguins and footprints, and the chairs are covered in faux sealskin leather.

Other gathering spots on the Carnival Victory include the Sirens' Bar aft on Lido Deck, the Juice Bar adjacent to the Nautica Spa, and two poolside bars near Triton's Pool on Lido Deck.


NEW CARNIVAL VICTORY OFFERS DELIGHTFUL ARRAY OF DINING OPTIONS

MIAMI -- Whether it's a formal sit-down dinner in the Pacific or Atlantic main dining rooms, a buffet breakfast in the Mediterranean restaurant or a late-night snack at the Pizzeria Arno, the new Carnival Victory offers something for every appetite. And recently expanded lunch and dinner menus and an upgraded wine list provide Carnival guests a wider selection of high quality cuisine throughout the "Fun Ship" fleet.

Dining RoomIn keeping with the ship's overall design inspired by the world's great bodies of water, the two-deck-high Pacific and Atlantic dining rooms sport a variety of aquatic-themed elements. Mermaid and merman-themed statues, seahorse-shaped door handles and bannister caps, and hand-painted curtains featuring an abstract fish motif create a mood that is elegant and artistic.

When guests arrive at the table, they will be greeted by diverse, well-rounded menus featuring a wider variety of seafood, beef and poultry dishes, as well as lighter, health-conscious Nautica Spa Fare and vegetarian entrées, all created by Executive Chef Peter Leypold and his team of chefs. The wine list has also been revamped to provide a broader range of moderately priced wines and top vintages from around the world. In addition, the specialty beverage menu now contains single-malt scotches, cordials and liqueurs.

Providing the ideal spot for an after-dinner espresso or cappucino is the Coral Sea Café, which features exquisite coral specimens in individual illuminated showcases, set off against black shell-stone floors and beige shell-stone walls. The café also offers a variety of delicious pastries, cakes and other confections.

For breakfast, lunch and dinner alternatives, there's the Mediterranean Restaurant on Lido Deck, whose interiors, like the name implies, are designed to resemble an Italian Riviera piazza. Housed within the restaurant are several specialty dining areas, including The East River Deli serving New York-style sandwiches and salads, Yangtze Wok offering Asian-influenced dishes, and the Mississippi BBQ featuring traditional American favorites.

The area also includes Pizzeria Arno, serving up seven different kinds of pies and calzones, as well as Caesar salad and garlic bread, 24 hours a day, while the Grand Buffet provides a smorgasbord of selections including hot and cold entrées, cheeses, vegetables, breads, an extensive salad bar and a full dessert station. Meals can be enjoyed in the expansive two-level eatery or taken out on deck.

The poolside restaurant also serves as the venue for the nightly "Seaview Bistro" alternative dinner-time service, as well as Carnival's legendary midnight buffet, which has been updated to reflect today's healthier lifestyles. The popular late-night dining option now incorporates a greater variety of fish, seafood and poultry dishes to complement the diversity of hot and cold items available each night.

There's also a "gala" midnight buffet where Carnival's chefs display their culinary artistry, while another night features a diverse array of decadent desserts, pastries and other sweets. For night owls seeking a tasty snack before turning in, a late-night crêpes buffet is available at 2:30 a.m.

Guests who want to enjoy a meal in the comfort of their cabin can take advantage of Carnival's complimentary 24-hour room service menu, which now features an even greater variety of freshly made items delivered any time of the day or night.


DEBUT OF CARNIVAL VICTORY EXPECTED TO PUSH COMPANY'S
FLEETWIDE 'NAUTICA SPA' USAGE PAST ONE MILLION MARK

MIAMI -- With the introduction of the new 102,000-ton Carnival Victory and its 15,000-square-foot health and fitness facility, annual spa usage on the line's 15-ship fleet is expected to top the one million mark for the very first time. That translates to 50 per cent of Carnival's nearly two million guests expected to sail on the "Fun Ships" this year.

"Exercising has become an important part of people's daily lives -- even while on vacation -- and the Carnival Victory was designed with today's health-conscious guests in mind, offering a variety of sophisticated equipment and expansive facilities, along with pampering treatments they otherwise might not indulge in back home," said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president.

Encompassing the forward areas of Spa Deck 11 and Sun Deck 12 with large picture windows providing panoramic views of the sea, the two-level spa offers guests all of the amenities and equipment available in the best land-based resorts.

In addition to a full gymnasium housing 16 Keiser progressive-resistance exercise machines, free weights, rowing and stair-climbing machines, treadmills and exercise bikes, the spa offers a 2,000-square-foot mirrored aerobics studio, separate men's and women's saunas, steam rooms and locker facilities, whirlpools and 10 private massage/treatment rooms.

Also housed within the spa is the Nautica Salon which features eight private styling areas and two facial rooms and offers a wide range of hair, nail and facial treatments. The Carnival Victory also features four swimming pools and a one-eighth mile padded jogging track encircling Spa Deck 11.

For those who enjoy the camaraderie of group exercise, the Carnival Victory offers a variety of instructor-led classes, from high and low impact aerobics and step and aqua aerobics, to stretching and relaxation sessions and organized mile-long walks on the ship's upper decks.

Classes are led by highly-trained instructors who provide tips on nutrition and proper training techniques and can even create a comprehensive wellness program for guests who want to continue their fitness regimen back home. The staff also conducts a variety of fitness evaluations such as height/weight and body fat analyses using sophisticated electronic equipment.

After their workout or just for the sake of indulging in some much-deserved personal pampering, guests can select from a sophisticated menu of full body and scalp massages, skin-cleansing treatments, facials, mud packs and seaweed wraps. For those seeking something a little more exotic, a variety of "European-style" slimming and toning therapies are also available.

Carnival's commitment to fitness also extends to the main dining rooms with its signature Nautica Spa fare, delicious guilt-free dishes created by the line's master chefs. These items are designated by a special menu symbol identifying the dish as lower in fat, Calories, cholesterol and sodium.

Meats and poultry are broiled or roasted, salads are prepared with low-fat or fat-free dressings and desserts with sugar substitutes. Even Carnival's legendary midnight buffet has been updated to reflect today's healthier appetites, with lighter fare incorporating a greater variety of fresh fish, seafood and poultry. Additionally, vegetarian selections are featured on all dining room menus.


TWO NEW LAS VEGAS-STYLE PRODUCTIONS FEATURED
ABOARD NEW 102,000-TON CARNIVAL VICTORY

MIAMI -- Two new Las Vegas-style revues aboard the new 102,000-ton Carnival Victory are sure to dazzle guests with high-energy performances, state-of-the-art technology and special effects.

Staged in the ship's three-deck-high Caribbean Lounge, the shows feature a cast of two singers and 16 dancers, a talented 10-piece orchestra, lavish costumes and elaborate sets. High-tech capabilities include a retractable orchestra pit, a multi-million dollar sound system and a specialized lighting system, rivaling the best land-based theatres.

"With an extremely talented cast and advanced technological capabilities, these shows offer a level of sophistication and extravagance that is equal to the best Las Vegas revues," said Roger Blum, Carnival's vice president of cruise operations and the shows' producer.

Much like the name implies, the first show, Livin' in America!, is a fast-paced tribute to America and the country's popular entertainment activities, including music, sports and movies.

The show opens with a whimsical tour through the various birthplaces of American music and reflects on the magic and lure of Hollywood and the film industry. The tour continues with a tribute to sports and popular swing tunes from the 1930s, 1940s and today. A final visit is made to the Great White Way with a show-stopping tribute to the legendary Radio City Music Hall.

In the second show, Vroom!, "Gabe Pure" -- self-described "roadie and spiritual mentor of the stars" -- provides a rollicking trip aboard his custom-built, hot pink Harley Davidson through the history of rock 'n roll by showcasing different music genres. Highlighted within the show are songs from the Beatles during the British Invasion and the sounds of Pink Floyd and Queen, with larger-than-life puppets and inflatables and spectacular laser effects. Next is Detroit, where its Motown tunes and artists, including the Temptations and the Four Tops, are showcased. Also featured is music from the disco and new wave eras, along with today's techno beats, and the show ends with a fantastic finale of video and laser special effects.

The 1,300-seat Caribbean Lounge offers a tropical décor with sailfish and octopus designs on the carpet and palm trees outlined on the windows. Decorated in coral and green shades, the upholstery reflects the colors of the sea, and paintings of sunfish, octopus and dolphins adorn the lounge's ceiling dome.


AQUATIC IMAGERY ENHANCES OCEANIC THEMES ON NEW CARNIVAL VICTORY

MIAMI -- Aquatic life and mythical sea creatures dominate the art on board Carnival Cruise Lines' new 102,000-ton Carnival Victory, enhancing the overall theme of the interior design -- the world's great bodies of water. In glass and on canvas, three well-known artists have captured the whimsical and the "fins-ical" aspects of the sea to help create a unique milieu aboard Carnival's newest "Fun Ship."

Renowned Italian glass sculptor Luciano Vistosi has created glass murals and a giant fish for the third "Destiny-class" vessel he has been commissioned to help decorate. Susanna Holt, also well-known as a sculptor, has executed glass murals that explore the boundary between myth and reality. Painter Janine Alter has captured the primordial essence of the Everglades in works that blend the styles of the French Impressionists and modern artists.

Fish SculptureVistosi, known for creating very large glass pieces, made a 14-foot-long, five-foot-high sculpture titled "The Fish," in glass, copper and stainless steel. Fashioned using a simple fish-shaped outline like a child's drawing, the piece blazes with color and light. Red, green and blue blocks of illuminated glass attach to the steel frame to form the scales, while the head is fabricated from copper with huge, multi-colored eyes like marble. "The Fish" is suspended from the ceiling of Promenade Deck and hangs in the three-deck aft atrium called Odyssey Hall.

The eight glass murals Vistosi created for Neptune's Way promenade are called, collectively, "Sea Bottom." Using circles and semicircles of multi-colored glass, the artist has created a three-dimensional effect to portray Carnival Victory's oceanic theme. The bottom layer of glass incorporates fish and small rocks like the bottom of the ocean, while the top layer harbors larger rocks, creating the illusion that the fish are swimming through water.

Susanna Holt's collection of glass murals for the Carnival Victory's elevator lobbies and passenger stair landings takes a different tack from Vistosi's. Where he creates with broad, colorful shapes and a playfulness, Holt's works are more ephemeral, with images dissolving and emerging from blue-green ripples like the familiar shapes often spotted in clouds. Holt blends feminine mermaid silhouettes and cavorting porpoises in a sensual undersea world.

Another unique body of water -- the expansive Everglades, a shallow, slow-flowing marshland covering seven million acres of South Florida -- is celebrated through Janine Alter's 20 original oil paintings and 14 motifs adorning the ship's nearly 1,400 staterooms.

Images range from prairie-like vistas of the open sawgrass country to tangled thickets of coastal mangroves, to swampy stands of red cypress whose straight trunks connect the water with the clouds. Drawing from a variety of impressionistic styles, Alter captures the indistinctness of the Everglades' seemingly endless variety of flora in muted hues under skies ranging from crystalline blue to the steel gray that precedes a violent thunderstorm.

Just as each of the world's great oceans has a character all its own, so do these three artists explore human beings' fascination with the substance that covers 80 per cent of the earth.


CARNIVAL VICTORY'S CAMP CARNIVAL PROGRAM:
SURE TO BE A HIT WITH KIDS OF ALL AGES

A nautical-themed game room, a high-tech indoor recreation area featuring a "video wall" and computer lab, and a full schedule of fun morning-til-night activities are sure to delight kids of all ages sailing aboard Carnival Cruise Lines' new 102,000-ton Carnival Victory, which debuted August 18, 2000.

These and numerous other "kid-friendly" amenities are just the latest additions to the line's fleetwide Camp Carnival program, whose supervised activities and state-of-the-art facilities are available free of charge to the more than 250,000 children expected to sail on the "Fun Ships" this year.

"The Carnival Victory is our 15th ship and we've taken everything we've learned about family cruising over the years and created what we believe is the ultimate ocean-going family resort, offering a diverse array of amenities and facilities for adults and kids alike," said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president.

The focal point of the Carnival Victory's Camp Carnival program is "Children's World," an enclosed 1,300-square-foot indoor play area housed on Spa Deck 11. In addition to an indoor climbing maze, spin and sand art machines and lots of toys and games, the colorfully decorated room offers a bank of computers loaded with educational software, as well as a 16-monitor "video wall" continuously displaying kids' favorite movies and cartoons.

One deck above the room is an outdoor play area with playground equipment and a children's wading pool. The Carnival Victory also offers three other options for swimming and splashing fun, including two pools on Lido Deck 9 - one aft and one mid-ship -- and another on Panorama Deck 10 featuring an exhilarating 214-foot-long water slide.

The ship also houses "Virtual Sea," a maritime-themed game room located on Promenade Deck 5 offering the latest video and virtual-reality based games.

When it comes to dining, kids also get the full Fun Ship treatment, with special children's menus and complimentary sodas for kids under 12 in the main dining rooms. The Carnival Victory also features an expansive poolside restaurant housing a 24-hour pizzeria and a grille area serving hot dogs, hamburgers and French fries, and complimentary self-serve ice cream and frozen yogurt station.

Kids sailing Carnival Victory will find a special surprise in their staterooms on the first and last night of their voyage -- freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, part of a recently launched "children's turn-down service," available fleetwide. Also included with the cookies is a special poem -- one welcoming kids on board and another thanking them for their Camp Carnival participation.

The Carnival Victory also offers the "Fountain Fun Card," good for unlimited soft drink purchases throughout the cruise for children under age 21. The cards, which are purchased once on board, range in price from $11 for four- and five-day eastern Canada cruises to $18 on seven-day Caribbean voyages.

Camp Carnival activities, which are conducted by the ship's 10-member youth staff, are provided on a complimentary basis for all kids ages 2-15 from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Babysitting is also available from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. for those parents who would like a night to themselves. The cost for babysitting is $5 per hour for the first child and $3 per hour for each additional child.

Continuing Carnival's tradition of spacious accommodations, the Carnival Victory offers a wide range of cabin categories, including extra-roomy family staterooms which feature a glass wall in lieu of a balcony. A number of inter-connecting staterooms - perfect for large families or family gatherings - are available, as well.
