Nice ship but we won't go again

Sail Date: December 07, 2008

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Victory is a very nice ship but the cruise begins and ends in Peurto Rico. At least 50% of the pasengers were Peurto Ricans who took over the Lido Deck #9 Pools etc, and the adjoining Mediterranean Buffet/Restaurant from morning till night, very noisy and also the entertainment system up there was so loud, that whole area was really not usable.

Pros: The itinerary - Eastern and Southern Caribbean

Cons: Too noisy - Deck #9 Lido, virtually unusable

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Entertainment
Evening song and dance shows a little old-fashioned
Service and Staff
All the staff were excellent, but special mentions to our Pacific Dining Stewards - Philip and Yuni, and to our Cabin Steward, Saidi. All great people.
Food and Dining
Good quality and choice.
Cabin / Stateroom
On Deck 10 with balcony - good size room, we liked it
Ship Quality
Needs a quiet lounge where you can talk or read and rest in peace and quiet
St. John's, Antigua
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Do the scenic tour - great views of the town, beaches and other islands

Dominica
Wonderful atmosphere, once you get through the throng of tour operators as you get off the ship. Must see the rain forest
Bridgetown, Barbados
Not so dramatic as the other islands, but does have some great beaches
Don't Miss: Go shopping on Broad Street
Basseterre, St. Kitts
Nice town. We took a cab to Frigates Bay Beach - that's just not worth visiting - there must be better beaches than that

Castries, St. Lucia
The best of the lot. Go shopping in Castries and we did a scenic tour again - well worthwhile
