7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 31, 2011
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

The food was better last year. At least we had lobster tail one night.

Las Vegas style shows were average, the comedians were very good.

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!!

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was clean but had to ask for soap!!

Rent a car and go everywhere but driving is on the left and signs are not great.
Don't Miss: Shopping and the beaches.

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

Go to the Pitons. Locals come to the catamarrans and sell junk at 5 times the cost on land.

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!
