have had much better. I also got sick from the food on the last night (this is the second time this has happened...on the last night!)

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
I had to call over and over and over again just to get in touch with guest services. If they are there to serve the guest, then the phone needs to be answered. The people next to us were raging drunk, out of control, screaming, banging on walls, yelling, slamming doors (at 2:30AM!) and I couldn't get in touch with guest services to get security to come down!

turtles are cool...but few available. Must know that the people there all fight w/ each other to get you to purchase things from them.

Castries, St. Lucia

3 out of 5
It was good, but didn't get what I expected from the excursion. Liked the mineral bath.

Pros: the pool and jacuzzi, and the announcer guy (nice accent and didn't bother too early in morning)

Cons: the food, the atmosphere, the age group

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
