Better this year than last year

Sail Date: July 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We sailed on this ship last year, same itinerary except Dominica was eliminated as a port (no one could say why). Last year the ship was in poor condition but new carpeting, new artwork etc. has made it OK now.

Pros: We went to 4 ports and sailed from old San Juan, more non smokiong areas on board.

Cons: The food was just OK, poor ship layout

Recommends Carnival Victory? Yes!

Ship Quality
It is maddening to try to walk from the front of the ship to the back. The many story atrium, mid ship, makes you walk up or down stairs to go from end to end of the ship. We were always lost!!
Food and Dining
The food was better last year. At least we had lobster tail one night.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was clean but had to ask for soap!!
Las Vegas style shows were average, the comedians were very good.
Service and Staff
Basseterre, St. Kitts

Don't Miss: Go zip lining.
Bridgetown, Barbados
Rent a car and go everywhere but driving is on the left and signs are not great.
Don't Miss: Shopping and the beaches.
Castries, St. Lucia
Go to the Pitons. Locals come to the catamarrans and sell junk at 5 times the cost on land.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Coral world is nice but past its prime. An excelent beach is next door. Shop til you drop here!!
Don't Miss: Megans beach, St. John's, shopping
Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Don't Miss: Shop!!!
