Do you want to re-live spring break?

Sail Date: August 11, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

If you're now an adult, and missed the opportunity to spend a week drinking & partying on Spring Break, this cruise is the opportunity to make up for all that you missed. Carnival claims to be the "fun" ships. If champagne giveaways, hairy chest competitions, and lots of bars with live party music, are your idea of "fun," then this is the cruiseline for you. Malcolm, the Cruise Director, is an entertainer in his own right. He's also an ever-enthusiastic promoter of all "fun" activities. His, "Whoo-hoo" is legendary. However, if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing time at sea, on a ship where you will meet and befriend like-minded travellers, this is NOT your cruise.

Pros: balcony staterooms

Cons: party atmosphere

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Halifax, Nova Scotia
Port is in the heart of downtown. Visited Peggy's Cove; a quaint lobster/fishing village with a lighthouse. The tour was quite well done. However, this little village was inundated (about 5 full tour buses all present) with tourists. The day we visited, there was very dense fog, so we didn't do any sightseeing about town.

Saint John, New Brunswick
Port is in the heart of downtown. As we left the ship/entered the dock area, the women of St. John greeted us and gave each of us a rose (wrapped & in a mini-water holder; lasted for days). I'd never experienced that in any other port. Toured the town by horse-drawn carriage, which covered a lot of the major sights. Walked through the town's traditional market (small but interesting) on the return to the ship.
