A fabulous itinerary!

Room Type: Inside

After sailing a a number of cruises and various cruiselines, Carnival does continue to do well. Even though this wasn't a new superliner, it was clean and well-maintained. This cruise was chosen for the itinerary and going to an island each day doesn't allow much time for rest, but the southern carribean never disappoints!

Pros: the islands

Cons: too cold in many public places on the cruise ship

Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
No shopping in town this time (which St. Thomas is known for) but the shopping at the pier is good.
Don't Miss: Saint John - Trunk Bay never disappoints!!
Castries, St. Lucia
Vendors bug you way too much on this island (at the beach) - recommended to purchase jewelry and wear it so sellers see you have already bought something and are no longer interested. This is by far one of the prettiest islands though.
Don't Miss: Renuit beach in Rodney Bay area
Basseterre, St. Kitts
First time on this island - interesting, pretty beaches but only recommended for a day stop.
Don't Miss: the monkeys!
St. John's, Antigua
The straw market at the pier is interesting.
Don't Miss: again, the beaches - horseback riding even offered at the beach!
No good beaches
Don't Miss: Hots springs and waterfalls
Bridgetown, Barbados
Always a favorite island!
Don't Miss: the beaches - the further from the cruiseship, the better
