7 Night Southern Caribbean (San Juan Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 30, 2012
Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

The ship is in need of an overhaul and update. It is old and in disrepair. Their are no dining choices besides the main restaurant and buffet. Internet connection was slow and unusable. I have been on many ships and in comparison to Royal Carib, NCL, Celebrity and another Carnival Ship I was on, this ship was disappointing in every aspect except the staff. I will not go on it again, and maybe not even on a Carnival ship at all again.

The staff was wonderful and made the trip enjoyable, but the ship was very unpleasant.
