Victory CruiseJanuary 2010

Sail Date: January 2010
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan

We arrived in San Juan on Friday stayed at the Sheraton Old San Juan great location but the hotel is VERY busy.We did a rain forest tour in San Juan the tour was a good time.

We got on the ship at 2:30 on Sunday and our room was ready when we boarded it was our first time in a suite it was ocean suite and the extra space was worth the extra money for the upgrade.The ship is starting to look and fell it's age a lot of areas are needing paint and some of the carpets had patches in another color but the ship was always clean.There was lot of rust almost anywhere you look when you were on the outside areas of the ship.

The food on the ship was pretty good but the service in the formal dining room was very poor drinks were always empty and it took way to long to get anything you asked for like more rolls and drink refills.The shows where all pretty good and good quality.

The room staff were GREAT they all know you by your first name right from the start and they took More care of our needs even before we would ask. Less

Port and Shore Excursions


We had already picked what we wanted to do at this port Carlyle Bay Beach all I can say is this was as good as it gets when it comes to beaches and only about a 10 min. cab ride from the ship we told the cab driver to come back and get us in three hours wish we would have said 5 hours.

This is a great port nobody begging here there is NO unemployment in St Kitts everyone that wants a job has one and nobody is homeless very clean and safe.We did a beach tour it was just so so but everything else was great.


This port has a nice cruise port and it is a fenced area all I can say is stay inside the fenced area every person outside the fenced area we came into contact with was begging for money and it was very dirty if we had it to do again we wouldn't even get off the ship.


We booked the Golden Eagle Catamaran Tour with Carnival this is a wonderful way to end your cruise great people great boat and free drinks for the day rum punch,beer,mixed drinks and good music.


We did the kayak hike and snorkel tour booked with Carnival it was a GREAT day great views and good snorkeling.
