A Good Cruise

Sail Date: May 22, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My overall impression of the ship is that it is an old vessell but easy to get around in and excellent for children.

Pros: The size of of the stateroom

Cons: The Service

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.

Ship Quality
The layout was good and easy to get around in but the sports bar needs updating desperately.
Food and Dining
The food was for the most part bland. The deserts were not as good as I have on other curise lines. The selections of offerings was adequate. The selection for food from room service was very limited.
Cabin / Stateroom
The size of the room was great. We had a balacony and there was good storage space.
Service and Staff
The rating of the staff was hit or miss; some were excellent and some were poor.
Carnival knows how to party. I had fun from Bingo to Trivia to Karoke. My husband also won at the Casino.
Basseterre, St. Kitts
The people of St. Kitts were not pleasant and I would not recommend this locale. I rated it last of the 5 ports we visited.
Don't Miss: Don't go
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
I enjoyed the port of St Thomas. I ranked it #3 of the 5 ports we visited. Good scenery and good shopping.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
I liked St. Maarten and would go back to visit. I ranked it #2 of the 5 ports we visited. The people were friendly and we had a great lunch.
Don't Miss: The Shopping
Castries, St. Lucia
I enjoyed St. Lucia. I raked it #4 of the 5 ports we visited. We did not do too much sightseeing at this port.
Don't Miss: The water ferry
Bridgetown, Barbados
I enjoyed this the best and ranked it #1 of the 5 ports we visited. The oldest church on the island and the Sudbury House were interesting. We had lunch in town Mustor's Restaurant; great fried chicken and flying fish.
Don't Miss: The people were very friendly
