Ship Facts: Carnival Victory Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Victory Deck Plans
Thanksgiving on the Victory!
We have cruised this itinerary on the Victory before so we were very unhappy that Carnival announced that they were dropping Domincia and adding a sea day, the seven ports in seven days were what made this such an exciting cruise but we didn't let it stop us from having a good time. We flew in Friday and stayed at the Howard Johnson Old San Juan, which I will no longer recommend, they no longer have breakfast, the elevator doesn't work and the place was nasty. Still, it was convenient to all the sights and we made the best of it.

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 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!
