Thanksgiving on the Victory!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Embarkation was fast and easy, we couldn't really tell that the ship had been in drydock other than new carpet on the stairs.
We had anytime dining and were seated promptly and professionally. The food was very good, the lobster was not over cooked, all the dishes came out promptly and warm. Service from all the dining staff was excellent, many waiters remembered our names, even though we only sat with them once. Andrew and Alberto are More especially to be noted.
Our starboard cabin was well maintained and beautiful, we were well taken care of by Jelena & Marlo, our stewards. We managed to dock starboard side to the port at every port except San Juan and St martin, those two were port side I was concerned about our cabin being under the Spa/Gym and hearing people working out at odd hours, but it was not a problem. We could hear people from time to time, but never too early or late.
We went to a few shows but frankly we didn't stay long, not much into singing and dancing...Went to the comedy club and thought the guy was terrible...
didn't gamble in the casino at all.
We had a great time on our cruise, we had a good mix of fellow passengers, the weather and ports were good and the ship and crew superior.
Towel animals, chocolates on the pillow and dancing/singing waiters, yes, we love Carnival! Less
Cabin review: 8E1015 Balcony
Cabin was too small for three people, we had to have a trundle bed brought in for him because the couch didn't make a bed, which effectively took up ALL floor space and couldn't use couch or table all week. This far forward, we really felt the ship pitch too. Great view from balcony, plenty of storage.Read All Balcony (8E) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Cockleshell beach is a joke, nasty with trash in the water, haven't found a beach on St. Kitts yet that was worth going to.
