Seven Days on Carnival Victory in April 2010
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Beginning with the ship and it's service: 1) The ship is beginning to show it's age. Nicks and scrapes everywhere. The carpet in cabin way hallways is very worn. The pools are also showing heavy wear and tear. The nicest bar with the best and most comfortable seating is the designated smoking bar. A total waste of a large bar that could be a great gathering place. 2) The food in the dining room was mediocre at best the entire week. Many of our new friends thought the same. Discussions on the beach, wharf and excursions was all the same;..the dining room food was very poor. The dining room staff did do a good job with the service. The food on Deck #9 was typical buffet food, not very appealing.
The big entertainment shows left much to be desired in our opinion. The part-time musicians brought on to entertain in certain bars were fair.
The mini-suite was nice, but the pictures on the Carnival website let you believe they are larger. The Cabin Steward Arvin was More awesome. One of the few highlights of the trip.
We thought we would give Carnival another try, but after this trip we are going to try other cruise lines or go back to the three previous lines we have cruised with. This was our eight cruise and one day later feel we should have chosen another cruise line. Less

We had the mini-suite. Very nice for it's overall size. Two large closets and a full size bath. Mattress was very nice. Flat screen tv was a nice touch. Large deck with three chairs and table.
