7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 22, 2012
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

as a first time customer i expected more directions on getting settled in on the ship. the check in crew in puerto rico was helpful but when i got on the ship i was lost and had to apply common sense in order to find my way around the ship. upon settling in the room service crew gave excellent service. the front line crew were far from pleasant. the entertainment on board was faboulous.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
staff kept to themselves not willing to interact. far from friendly, willingnesss/ability to help and not going above and beyond, namely the staff from croatia, russia ect. they are very cold people. they are not people's persons.

empressed with the constant cleanliness

Cabin / Stateroom

stayed with a party of 5 people in the room and everyone was comfortable.

Pros: the buffet lounge, freedom to pick your own food

Cons: the long lines standing waiting to get to the buffet table
