Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!

Ship Quality
the layout was easy to get around, was clean, that decor was a little over the top, but i guess thats to be expected
Food and Dining
The quality of food was average, breakfast and lunch buffets were OK.The sit down dinner meals on the other hand were always cooked perfectly and delishous. There was always a place to eat no matter what time.
Cabin / Stateroom
clean our stewart went out of his way to make our 2 twins a king
Service and Staff
everyone was always friendly
Basseterre, St. Kitts
had a taxi take us to frigate bay, was a nice beach just a little rocky.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
we got a taxi at the port and went to meagens bay for a couple of hours, the same taxi came and picked us up took us downtown to shop for an hour then took us back to the ship, it was a great experience.
Castries, St. Lucia
We booked and excursion for this island too kayaking to pigeon island, they basically took us kayaking in a circle then to the island, i think we just should have got a taxi there. But the island is spectacualr, you can hike up to a small fort for panaramic views, and swim in the beautiful water. There is a retaurant called the Coal Pot, that is a ferry ride away near the boat just ask at the information desk AWESOME food!
Our excursion of river tubing was cancelled due to high amounts of rain, so we just got a taxi and went to trafalgar falls, which were beautiful.
St. John's, Antigua
We got a taxi to devils bridge and then the taxi took us to long bay, great great beaches had a great time just relaxing in the sand.
Bridgetown, Barbados
loves barbados we actually booked and excursion through the ship to malibu beach, next time i wouldnt have did that, later we found out a taxi ride from the ship to there was 5$, much cheaper than our excusion price. from the beach we payed a man to take us out on his catamaran to go snorkeling with turtles we saw i think 3 turtles so for 25$ it was worth it.
