A "Cool" Carnival Canadian Cruise

Sail Date: June 30, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

We haven't cruised in several years and were very pleasantly surprised to find the Carnival Victory a great ship to cruise on. Our children (twins age 13 and a younger child age 7) spent most of their time at Camp Carnival activities. The food was plentiful, always available, varied, and good. Our stateroom was larger than what we experienced on previous cruises. It could use a little bit of an update in decor but was clean and we had plenty of storage space. The crew was friendly and helpful.

Pros: Variety of Activities, Cleanliness, and Not so crowded

Cons: Price of Alcoholic Beverages

Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!

Saint John, New Brunswick
We enjoyed the trip to St. Martins and the sea caves. Our children enjoyed collecting "wishing" stones from the beach. It was neat to see the drastic difference in the water level after the tide change in the harbor there. We also enjoyed the covered bridges and visiting with a local author. Although a bit overrated, we liked seeing the Reversing Falls in the morning and then again in the afternoon. The brief shopping stop at the City Market was good, too. Our guide was very informative about the history of Saint John and vicinity.

We enjoyed the Lobsters and Lighthouses excursion. Our youngest daughter enjoyed being able to assist in lifting the lobster trap out of the water and we all enjoyed being able to hold the lobsters. The views of the nearby coastline, islands, and lighthouses were very picturesque. We really loved our lobster lunch. Our children had never eaten a whole lobster before. It was fun to watch and teach them how to eat it. Our tour was short enough to allow us time to explore Halifax on our own. The weather was beautiful. We strolled the waterfront and walked uphill on Georges Street past the Grande Parade to the Clock Tower and then up to the Citadel. The walk was a bit strenuous but the cool temperatures made it nice. It was fun to watch the soldiers march around the fort and hear the bagpipers play. The views were spectacular, too!!!
