Carnival Victory - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: April 2006
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Sailed April 23rd with 19 people in our party including three teenagers ages 19, 17 and 16. They complained that there was really nothing for them to do on sea days, The 19 year old could get into the Disco at night but the other two couldn;t so that left them with nothing to do.

Cabin I felt was small we had a Balcony cabin on the 6th deck, cabin service at times was poor.

Food was good no one had any complaints in this department. Bar service at the back pool was slow many times.

The back pool was always crowded with small children why they couldn't use the kiddie pool was beyond all of us. The hot tub for adults was closed more than it was opened.

Beach at Costa Maya had a lot to be desired, people were rude and beach was not that nice. Had problems getting the waverunners that we had booked prior to the cruise, but in our party did do parasailing and had a great time.

Grand Cayman we just shopped a few in the party went out to More Hell!!

Ocho Rios was a blast. We did the white water tubing and Dunn's River Falls.

Disembarkation: One would think as often as Carnival does this we would now have it down to a science, not is the case, we did the take yourself off the ship with all your luggage, the crew lost control of this within the first hour took some in our party over an hour to get off after us. The only reason we did this is we had a 10 hour drive ahead of us and thought we could get an early start NOT.....I do believe Carnival really does need to look into this for this was our third cruise with them and this is where they are really lacking. Considering we have sailed other lines and it works like clock work for them.

A lot in our party were just not happy with Carnival and said they would never cruise it again. Less
