This was my first cruise ever, and I'm very glad that I chose the Carnival Victory. Carnival is clearly committed to making the cruise fun, friendly and stress-free. Activities were well-rounded, the food and drinks were top-notch, and the ship staff were some of the friendliest, most helpful people I have ever met. Within two days, many of the staff in the dining hall knew us by name!
The cruise demographic was also very diverse -- a good balance between singles, couples and families. I was very pleased to see a daily GLBT happy hour.
The islands we visited were absolutely stunning, and the excursions well worth the money. I would DEFINITELY recommend the South Caribbean -- turquoise seas, mountainous and volcanic terrain, friendly people, enticing food and fascinating history.
