7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2010
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (older children)

We were all very disappointed with the ship.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was just okay, nothing spectacular. The presentation of the food was very poor and there was nothing special about the decor/ambience. Our servers, however, were extremely good and a lot of fun.

The entertainment overall was very dissatisfying.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Dining room waiter was very friendly and took care of all our needs. However, the people in guest services bordered on rude when we needed help with early debarkation.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Elevators were extremely slow and going from our rooms to the Pacific Dining Room was a challenge.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The bed was very comfortable but the suite size did not warrant the price for a balcony room.

Snorkeling and swimming with the giant turtles was the absolute best part of the day.
Don't Miss: TURTLES!

This was our least favorite port, though the bazaar shopping was a lot of fun.
Don't Miss: St. John's
5 out of 5
Loved the island and the people. Absolutely our favorite stop!
Don't Miss: Aerial tram ride through the rain forest and the zipline adventure.
5 out of 5
Our second favorite stop! The people were extremely friendly and seeing and learning about their customs was great.
Don't Miss: Tour of the city and beach.
5 out of 5
The catamaran snorkel/beach excursion. Just make sure to stay on Dutch side - because of the weather we ended up on French side on a beach that was a naturalist beach. Somewhat shocking to our children to see nudeness.
Don't Miss: The beaches.

Pros: The ports visited

Cons: Entertainment

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
