May 2014 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Victory
We needed a good vacation
My 81 year old mother and I enjoyed this cruise. It was the little vacation we needed. We enjoyed the dining room experience each evening (6 pm). The food was not the variety or the presentation we experienced 9 years ago on another cruise line to Alaska, but sufficient. The shows were good but not great, and I missed having other learning opportunities (i.e. about the ecosystem, the destinations, etc.) I was disappointed that several of the cruise activities were tied to a product or sales (skin care, interpret your footprint, etc.) Staff were top notch and excursions were well done.
