Bahama Cruise on the Victory

Sail Date: April 10, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Victory ship was ok.....  We did love our cruise director, Marcelo though activities were somewhat disappointing!  We loved our balcony stateroom but our shower was gross!  Food was good, our wait staff in the Pacific dining room were GREAT but our table was on the outside edge and we were sadly unable to view any of the performances by the wait staff!  The smells in the hallways were absolutely HORRIBLE!  Pools are very tiny!  The Alchemy Bar always has our favorite drinks but our bartender was just awful!  The shows were really good.  LOVED the 80's trivia in the atrium hosted by our cruise director!!   Debarking the ship @ Port Canaveral was the best debarking experience we have ever had!  Nassau (we visited Atlantis) was AMAZING!!  Freeport, on the other hand, no desire whatsoever to return!  Overall, we had a lot of fun but definitely would not do or recommend the Victory.

Food and Dining
Port Canaveral, Florida
Did a good job with embarkation and debarkation! Nearby convenient stores to have your taxi/shuttle stop and grab your soda to take aboard to save you lots of money!
Nassau, Bahamas
Atlantis was AMAZING! Taxi rides to and from were easy and cheap ($4/person)!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
VERY industrial, not walking friendly to beach, nothing but straw market (with AGGRESSIVE sales people) near ship......Senor Frogs and Fat Tuesday were the only 2 good close things. No desire to ever return there!


Balcony was wonderful to have! We were on Deck 8, convenient to Lido deck! Try NOT to get a cabin close to the Atrium because the loud singing really late at night was not so great to hear!
