Very poor variety. Very disappointing! Lines were veryyyyy long. Waited for nothing good and cold.

There weren't too many things to do.. comedy, bingo, variety show, and name that tune pretty much same things repeated daily and multiple times within the same day. Comedians were o.k

Children's Programs

My energetic son was bored with the childrens activities. He is 7 and refused to go back.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Other cruises we've been on had a friendlier staff. They were okay but definitely didnt go out of their way for us.

Very built up compared to other islands. Lots of shopping. Magen's Bay was expensive and a bit over-rated.

Pros: The ports we visited were lovely but we knew that that's why we booked

Cons: The lines!! Such long lines for the food, and such limited food choices. Practically the same food everyday with maybe five new items.

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
