Great Value, but beware...: Carnival Victory Cruise Review by OceanosII

Great Value, but beware...
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Pros: Carnival gets a bad rap for being a budget cruise line, but their service, food, and accommodations are fantastic for the price. While they might not match the premium cruise lines, they are far above Norwegian (at least in these areas).
Cons: Be careful, and don't expect Carnival to have your back. Their shops are usually more expensive than stateside, their booze will be cheaper at port, and their art auctions (Park West Gallery) have been caught selling frauds (especially Peter Max). Even worse, their shopping seminars are meant to completely deceive you, including crippling investment. I met a guy that put his savings into tanzanite gems at $200 a carat, even though you can buy them at Macy's for $100.
It's unfortunate that Carnival makes money off More deceiving people, but if you keep that in mind, you'll have a great time for the money. Less
