Carnival Victory

May 2015 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Victory

The Party Ship

My husband and I were celebrating our 9th year wedding anniversary.  I was a bit disappointed that at dinner nothing was said and nothing was done to our cabin.  We usually get a little card saying happy anniversary from the Carnival Management or Family.  Other than that the Cruise was really good.  We were told the boat was going to be renovated in the month of April, but I did not notice anything renovated, there was a construction area blocked off in the upper level of the adult pool.  The day we arrived back to Miami there was heavy construction being done to the boat.  The noise woke us up.  The cabins need some renovations, but the size of the cabin was fair in comparison to past cruise cabins.  The pool party's with DJ Devine were really good.  The music was on point and everyone in the crowd was enjoying the party.  The music in the Club at nights was really low and not enjoyable.  We enjoyed the Latin Club live music more than the regular club because of the noise level.  Over all the cruise was really good and memorable.

August 2014 - 5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Sunshine

sss52606's Tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico - The only thing I would've like was more time on the island, gotten there earlier. We got there at 1:00 pm and left at 9:00 pm.
Miami, Florida - Make sure to register in advance for quick, easy and no lines. Our party of 10 registered in advance and we were on the ship in matter of minutes.
Carnival Glory Carnival Glory - Don't go on board thinking it's a new ship, and if you have kids in your party be prepared to be scolded by the pool attendants.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - It was raining on and off and we decided to take a bus/trolley up to the mountain. Where we took amazing, breath taking pictures and we were able to purchase lower priced souvenirs. The ride cost us $6 per person round trip.
Grand Turk Island - I had been to Grand Turks Island 4 years ago and it has changed for the better. The beach is right next to the port. We brought our own snorkeling gear and went out on our own in the designated areas to snorkel. Margaritaville has showers to clean off sand from the beach and the pool as well as the pool chairs are complimentary. Keep in mind that some of the beach chairs and umbrellas are not complimentary, but the beach chairs that are a little further away from the water are complimentary. The Island is small and not much to do, therefore, it was the cheapest Island we went to.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic - First time visiting Amber Cove and I fell in love. The port is super clean and new. We wanted to go to the water falls. Carnival excursions were a little on the high end, so we decided to talk to a taxi driver negotiate our price for a party of 10, to take us to the water falls and at the water falls we paid the entrance fee ($12.00 per person). With the $12 purchase that includes, helmet, life vest and two tour guides. There are a total of 12 water falls, but due to the limited time we were only able to do 7 water falls out of the 12. Once the hiking is done (it took a good hour and 1/2 to climb/hike), but once you jump in the water, you quickly know it was all worth the climb/hiking. There are natural slides with in the waterfalls, you jump off cliffs and the tour guides tell you were to jump. We have been to Jamaica, Dominica and El Yunque at Puerto Rico, but this was different and extremely fun!
