Bahama Cruise

Sail Date: June 19, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The cruise was great.  Was disappointed that some of the "activities" listed on internet were not available.....the guest comic was not who was indicated on internet.....the activities for 15 to 17 year olds were, to say the least, inadequate.  The "director" of the program was, as my grandson said, "reminded him of being in cub scouts".  When they hit this age, being "led" into activities doesn't appeal to them.  Perhaps programs geared more towards their age would have been more appropriate. 


The food was fantastic.....the waiters were superb.....especially Oswaldo and Luis.  They went above and beyond what could possibly be expected of them.  Thanks, guys.


Housekeeping was great.....especially Randall. 


In guest services, the only one there who was helpful and had a great attitude was Ivana.,


All in all, I would cruise again, just not on the Victory.

Cabin / Stateroom
Randall was great......kept up with necessities.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The only disembarkation that was very slow was the final one. The others were great.
Ship Quality
While clean, the ship needs some "love". Paint was peeling off walls in elevators, and some carpets needed cleaning.
Destinations and Excursions
Very disappointed with the Blue Lagoon Island excursion......expected better
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Did not have comic that was listed on internet.
Entertainment for 15 to 17 years olds was not as listed on internet and was far below adequate
Service and Staff
Staff outstanding......Waiters.....Oswaldo and Luis
Guest Services....Ivana
Food and Dining


Check out the ship carefully. It was not as indicated on internet
