Carnival Victory Cruise Review by aplmac: Short but very sweet!
Overall Member Rating
Short but very sweet!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
We flew to Puerto Rico to catch this cruise...a short, three-day affair leaving P.Rico on the Sunday night, passing through St.Thomas in the U.S.Virgin Islands, then through DOMINICA the rain-forest island, and (for us) ending in Barbados where we live. Boarding at San Juan was the usual long line, but it moved smoothly...there's only one way to get 2,000 people on one ship, and it takes time!
Our balcony cabin was superb, not to mention very handy for taking photographs at the spur of the moment! LOVED the ship's atrium -very photogenic! The ship itself is lovely, well appointed, nice carpets, a great water-slide for the kids, good food both in the upstairs LIDO Restaurant and in the main dining rooms, a mini-golf course up on a top deck forward that I think few people were even aware of,unfortunately -and a biiiiig screen showing movies on the LIDO sun deck.
We weren't on the usual one-week cruise arrangement. Ours was a quick mini-cruise lasting only three short More days and then we were home to Barbados....oh well, there's always another time...soon! I loved the ship...found it interesting to explore and photograph and would certainly go again! Less

Balcony Cabin 6431 was quiet,spacious and comfortable. Loved it! Bathroom was adequately spacious,too...and there's a Safe in the cabin! We spent Election Night 2008 on Victory, with my wife glued to the TV, watching the results come in! I made great use of the balcony for photographs.Read All Balcony (8A) Reviews >>
