The piano bar was not the calibre I've experienced on other cruises and a lot of other entertainment was took place in lounges that were too smokey to enjoy.

Entertainmnent and activities left a lot to be desired. Trivia games were too short--15 - 20 minutes. There were no sessions to acquaint guests with points of interest at ports. Mixers for age 40+ were held at 11:30pm, when older guests were ready to go to bed. There was a lot of bad karaoke with the same handful of people performing over and over.

The visit to one of the rum distilleries is a must.

The views were spectacular! Cab rides are not for the faint of heart!

Take the sugar train to see a lot of the island, including small villages and lots of undeveloped land.

Pros: Friendliness of staff

Cons: Much of the entertainment was in smokey lounges

Recommends Carnival Victory? No.
