5 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Victory
Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Gone are the pushy waiters trying to sell the drink of the day every five minutes! No more overbearing security, or restrictive rules about what is open on port days.

They do play a better mix of music at the pool (pop, country, r&b, even relax music).

The thing I find most annoying is the gaudy, busy, ugly decore. The flow and designs of the ship cause to many places where crowds form. The ships are almost always full which doesn't help. Other cruise lines have a more relaxed feel and better flow of passengers. The smoking policy is too liberal and needs to be updated. The walls and furniture always seems to be in disrepair.

Just a "good" cruise.

Opt for the my time dinning. Great new option.

Favorite place. Do your homework on places to see and do. Appreciate it for what it is, not compared to what your used to at home.

Beautifull and yet pricy island.
