7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 27, 2011
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

We returned one week ago from our trip on the Victory for the second time, the ports of call were wonderful, weather was so-so, warm but lots of rain and storms during the week. The ship was very crowded with a lot of teens and pre-teens, we had thought this would be a week when there would be less kids. Would like to see a pool that is adults only. The adult serenity area was very nice and the hot tubs.
Our room (ocean suite) was wonderful very roomy with an awesome cabin steward. Wish that there was more consideration for non-smokers on the balconies, it is hard to enjoy your balcony when you are downwind of heavy smokers.
We chose any time dining and that was the best decision we have ever made, no pressure, just go when you are ready. The comedians were very enjoyable, we didn't go to any other shows.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dining room food was wonderful, always multiple choices. Buffet got a little repetitious, but so does cooking at home LOL

We mostly did the comedy shows. Day at sea events were fun. Didn't think I would enjoy the "hairy chest contest" but it was hiliarious.
