2013 Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Victory

Sail Date: May 27, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

We had a wonderful time on this cruise. The vast majority of the staff working on the ship were very friendly and helpful. There were a few staff members who were not particularly friendly, but that was the exception. Our room steward was fantastic!. I had a massage at the spa and the massage was great, but the masseuse got irritated with me when I didn't want to buy the products she told me about after the massage. We did the Chef's Table one evening and highly recommend it, but be sure to be VERY hungry before you go because it is a lot of food! It included an hour of conversation with the head chef along with a tour of the galley during the dinner time so we got to see it when it was busy and then the 7 course meal took 2 hours. Delicious, but we were beyond stuffed. We bought our shore excursions on Carnival's website in advance of the cruise and I HIGHLY recommend doing that or you will be waiting in a very long line to buy them on the ship and possibly not getting to do what you prefer. We did power snorkeling in Grand Turk, parasailing at Half Moon Cay, and Discover Atlantis at Nassau. We loved the snorkeling and parasailing, but the Discover Atlantis was really just a tour of a resort hotel and the aquarium. It was okay. The dinners in the dining room on the ship are wonderful. The buffets for breakfast and lunch were basically the same every day, but the omelet bar for breakfast was very good. We had a room with a balcony and loved having that extra space where we could unwind and have long, private conversations. It was worth the additional cost. If you cruise with carnival, I hope your experience is as good as ours was. Bon Voyage!

Miami, Florida
Grand Turk Island
Loved the excursion, but the island is kind of depressing.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Very nice beach.
Nassau, Bahamas
Lots of shopping, but watch out for the ladies who will welcome you and put a necklace on you...they then insist on a $5 "donation" for each necklace.

Tip

Take the stairs. It's good exercise and the wait for the elevators can be long at busy times like when you arrive at the ports.
