As a seasoned cruise lover, I would highly recommend! There were a group of 6 ladies on annual girl's trip heading on Carnival's Victory ship to The Caymans and Ocho Rios. Of the 6, 2 ladies were first-timers; 2 were on their second cruise and 2 of us have been on multiple cruises. We greatly enjoyed every minute of the onboard activities, gorgeous ports, and lively entertainment. Special accolades to Ervin Mitchell, the comedian. He was absolutely HILARIOUS without the use of much profanity. We enjoyed his shows so much that we attended all 3 during the night of the cruise.
We were surprised by the great value of balcony cabins on the Lido deck. Speaking on cabins, we had the best room attendant ever! Dewa was amazing, efficient and prompt despite working on 2 floors as well as a sometimes "rocking" ship during night hours. There were a couple of storms during the night that caused the ship to "rock" from side to side from time to time. We were prepared with sea bands so no big deal.
Please be aware that you get what you pay for...The cabins showed general wear and had an ancient television instead of flat screen. These were minor nits since we did not go on the cruise to critique the cabins or watch tons of TV.
Finally, we LOVED the made to order omelets, Serenity adult section and sauna/steam room. We did not love the tender process into Grand Cayman but the entire process was overlooked when we hit the island. Gorgeous 7 Mile beach took all of our worries away! Although I'd been to both ports previously, it was nice to do new things and see the same ports through fresh eyes of friends. The cruise could not have been better or more fun with great gal pals!

If possible, recommend reserving a balcony cabin on the Lido deck. Incredibly easy to navigate meals, entertainment, and quick runs to the cabin.
Don't forget to use the sauna and steam room in the spa. They are free luxuries!
Locate Serenity adult section. So amazing to be child-free!
