DINING
The Atlantic Dining Room
Victory has two main dining
rooms:  The
Pacific Dining
Room
(above) which is at the
stern, and The
Atlantic
Dining Room,
which is more
amidships.
Both dining rooms  are two
decks high and are similarly
decorated. While the Atlantic
has a more spectacular
staircase, the Pacific seems to
be a brighter room due to the
fact that it has windows on three
sides (port, starboard and along
the stern).
When the ship is at sea, The
Pacific is used for all three
meals.  It is usually closed for
lunch in port.
The Atlantic is only open for
dinner except on sea days when
it is sometimes used for
aftern
oon tea.
Both restaurants utilize the
same dinner menu.
The Pacific Dining Room
follows the traditional
passenger ship system for
dinner as does the lower level of
the Atlantic.  Each guest has a
reserved space at either the
early or late seating.  The
principle advan
tages of this
system is that it lets the
passengers get to know their
serving staff as well as the
passengers who are seated with
them.  
The upper level of the Atlantic
Dining Room has Your Time
Dining, a flexible dining
system.  Under it guests may
dine at their leisure between
5:45 and 9:30 p.m.  However,
there are no reserved tables.
Each restaurant has tables for 2,
4, 6 and 8 as well as a larger
group table.
The other meals are on an
open-seating system with one of
the assistant restaurant mangers
assigning tables as passengers
appear.
The galley on CARNIVAL
VICTORY is larger than the
ship's engine room.  It is
populated by 120 cooks and
70 galley stewards and
provision staffers.  
During dinner, one plate per
second leaves the galley to be
served. It serves 1,500 main
courses in less than 25
minutes.

shows the waiters what each
dish looks like.
The Grand Buffet is a specical event in the
Mediterranean Restaurant.  
 The restaurant is
decorated with ice sculptures and creations made of butter
and other food stuffs.  A special viewing period is set aside
during which passengers can photograph or just ogle these
displays before the hungry horde devours them.   
Guests can forego the main
dining rooms altogether and
eat all three meals plus various
between-meal mealss in the
Mediterranean
Restaurant
, which is the
ship's self-service food court.  
This is a very popular area
located between the Triton and
Siren pool areas on Lido
Deck.  (There is also a balcony
section on Panorama Deck).  
This restaurant is composed of
several stations including the

Yangtze Wok
(Asian) (left);
Pizzeria Arno (24-hour
pizza)(below left); the
Mississippi BBQ
(hamburgers and grill
items)(below right); the
Mexican (right); and the
East River Deli
(sandwiches) (above right).
The Coral Sea Cafe is a specialty coffee
shop along Victory's indoor promenade.  It
also offers cakes, cookies and milkshakes
for an additional charge.

In addition to these venues, Victory has a
Sushi Bar in the evenings outside the
Trident Bar.
