Victory-Southern Caribbean

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan

We flew from Minneapolis to San Juan for our carnival cruise! First impression of this ship was, hey its exactly like the Valor that we had done the year before! but that was ok. We went right to the stateroom, since it was ready by the time we had boarded the ship. our stateroom was dirty!! We had hair on the toilet in the bathroom, our bodywash was empty, there was 2 holes in the curtains so light shined in at night. And one thing that really erked me is that this ship does not give you a MINI BAR?!?! No bucket for ice either in your room. I thought that was crappy.
As we were to sail...oh no, there was a problem with the propulsion system. They had informed us that we would be leaving later than scheduled. e partied well into the night, we were still in San Juan when we went to bed at 2AM. We got up at around 8am to get off the ship in St thomas...when i went outside to smoke, OH MY GOD, we were still in San Juan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We didnt leave the port till 11 am. we did More not arrive to St Thomas till almost 5pm. That was the time we were suppose to leave that port. We were given 2 hours to spend on the island before we had to leave. For the change in itinerary we got a 100 credit to the stateroom. that was ok.
the rest of the cruise went as planned! And IT WAS GORGEOUS!! all the ports were beautiful!
The food on the victory was marginal at best. the service in the Pacific dining room was very slow. We had the 8:15 dinner, and we NEVER got finished before 10pm. The buffet's on the ship were almost better than the dining room, and that being said it wasnt the greatest either, it was the same thing everyday!!! burgers hotdogs fries and chicken tenders...got old
the decor of the ship was very outdated and tacky. i thought that the Valor wa tacky, but this was worse. they should update the carpets and colors.
over all i think that the victory cruise was much fun, i cant wait till my next years cruise, but i think we are going NCL next year!!! Less
