Carnival Victory Cruise Review by SailingFromIndiana: Second Cruise Just As Special

Second Cruise Just As Special
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Carnival did not let us down. Almost everything about it was GREAT.
The CARNIVAL STAFF can not be beat. Everyone from housekeeping to concierge to captain were charming and helpful!
STATEROOM: Our first cruise had a balcony. This cruise had a nice size window that always gave us a wonderful view if we were not in port. Our room was on the Riviera deck, which is the lowest deck for customers and it was just as roomy as the one with the balcony. The bathroom was smaller, but adequate.
ENTERTAINMENT: The ship was always offering something for us to do, if we were to do so. From games, to comedy acts, to full blown show, to Art Auctions... There of course the option of just laying out on the deck and catching some rays!
SPA: Victory has a full-service spa on the most upper decks. One the first day, they had a drawing for SPA certificates if you checked out the gym (yes...they have a large gym so you can work out while gazing at More the ocean!). I won a $250 gift certificate! The message and facial was world-class!
FOOD: Food was indeed plentiful and always available. This was a GREAT thing! The problem was the seated dinner. Compared to our previous cruise. The portions were very stingy and the selection was not as good as before. Instead of having the wonderful problem of deciding which dish to choose, this cruise's menu did not have a great selection. The did have a wonderful category of unusual dishes that you could try every night. I tried Alligator!
ADVERTISEMENTS: The cruise director's voice repeatedly came on overhead telling us of sales in the ship's shops, places to stop in port to purchase diamonds and gems, Art Auctions, and other things to spend money on. There was always something to spend money on. Less
