7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip) Sail Date: November 06, 2011 Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 5 years ago
Getting on the Carnival Victory was no problem. The process was well manned and rehearsed but once on the boat you realized the personal space was going to be limited the next seven days. Ship personnel hard trouble with the english language at best it was a basic understanding. Only two crew members we spoke to knew how to tell us where and when to be on the boat most just pointed. I have been on other cruises where there were willing to guide you through the boat. Guest realatitions were all but that. They were curt with their replies/answers. I have a theory about that... I would act that way if I had to deal with the cruisers all day. The people on the boat couldnt control their tempers or the appetites. More on this later

Service and Staff

not helpful. never knew what the events on the ship were or where. One of the crewman was tasked with taking drink orders and dinner and he messed up the drinks three times each time charging us for the johnny walker black label when we ordered vodka or rum drinks. then said he already made them and charged them to the room and was not able to go back and change it... we only odered two drinks from him

The size of the ship was great. Very spacious rooms and plenty of walking room up top on the outside decks. The hallways always had mildew smell to them and the elevators smelled pretty bad everyday all day. I thought the first few times that it was a specific individual but I was surprised that it always smelled like body odor.

Dont even get off the boat. Zip line was lame no adventure or scenary. Scary taxi drivers. sketchy people all over the place trying to push their services on you and if you dont want the services the get angry and yell.
