7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 01, 2011
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The ship looked a bit tacky. Our ocean view room was ok but do not understand why we had the last aft cabin on riviera deck even though we booked 3 months in advance. For 1200 we had a cabin that smelled like food and we heard the engine with docking and leaving. Casino staff used to give entertaining games and hosts but hardly said a word now or acknowledge players. Most fun came from our fellow guests and not from the Carnival Victory.

Harrisons cave was a disappointment. Because of being treated hostile by the islands people, we went back to the ship

Pros: the coffee bar and shows

Cons: casino

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
