7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 07, 2008
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Good quality and choice.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Evening song and dance shows a little old-fashioned

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Needs a quiet lounge where you can talk or read and rest in peace and quiet

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
On Deck 10 with balcony - good size room, we liked it

Wonderful atmosphere, once you get through the throng of tour operators as you get off the ship. Must see the rain forest

Not so dramatic as the other islands, but does have some great beaches
Don't Miss: Go shopping on Broad Street

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

Nice town. We took a cab to Frigates Bay Beach - that's just not worth visiting - there must be better beaches than that

Pros: The itinerary - Eastern and Southern Caribbean

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