Carnival Victory a Pleasure

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
Cruised May 20,2012.

Traveled with Wife, Son and his GF.
Flew into Puerto Rico on Friday.
What a great idea. A full couple of days to relax after the travel stress.
And plenty of time to tour.
We did the Segway tour of PR, Excellent.
We were on board the ship early, 11:30. Very Quick at that time.
We went to Lido deck and had lunch, then explored the ship.

Quite a bit of Spanish music on board during the week, But it was expected since the cruise did leave from PR. Most passengers were from PR, but there was still a mix of people aboard.

Ate in the Atlantic dining room every night. Our waiter,Dylan, and his staff, John and Ivanka were Superb.
Loved the food in the dining room. We were able to experiment with foods we never had before, and Dylan and his staff had no problem with ordering something different if you did not like what you had. Ordering multiples of apps or entries was also fine. My sons GF once had three apps instead More of an entree. Any request was met without question. I highly recommend the Dining room.

The Buffet on Lido was just that, a buffet. Great for a quick meal. Hot Dogs, Burgers, Chicken out by the pool.

The Sandwich deli was AWESOME, as well as the Chinese food. (Both in the Mediterranean on either side)

Pizza available 24 hours on rear lido deck. Not the best, but far from the worst I ever had.

The shows every night were good. My son said the Adult comedians at late night were very good.

Having only one "SeaDay" added to the fun. You really had a lot of opportunities to get off or stay aboard the ship.

Staterooms were very clean.

Carried our own luggage off ship at end.
We were off the ship and on our way to Airport in under 30 minutes. Easiest ending we ever had to vacation.

Would definitely do again and highly recommend Less

Cabin review: 8D8304 Balcony

Great location. One level below Lido deck. Staff worked hard to keep clean and it showed.
