  3. Carnival Victory
We were in cabin 7290 which was a little small when there are two twin beds but we made it work since we were only in there to sleep. Cabin steward Tskita took care of us. Menu in the Atlantic dining room was okay, we ate there only 2 of the 4 days and enjoyed the buffet the oth4r days. Burgers were really good. We took the cruise to get away from the everyday ho hum not for a gourmet meal so we weren't disappointed. If you are looking for 5 star menu/quality you may want to try sail on one of Carnival's newer ships. The staff on the Lido Deck was amazing, hugs and more hugs to Kelly who went out of her way to care of our needs. Felipe was awesome as the cruise director and the Broadway shows and comedy shows are a must see. We had the honor, minus the rain, of being able to catch 2 of the dine-in movies on the Lido Deck, King Kung (Skull Island) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Embankment and Dis-Embarkment went smoothly. The ship is one of their older ones and these are not as tip top as one would expect but we weren't expecting perfection. This is my 3rd time cruising on the Victory and for quick cruise I'd do it again.

Cabin was small but we made it work since we were only in there to sleep. Clean and beds were comfortable. Frig worked but didn't keep items ice cold, just cold.

  • City Tour
    Top 10 Things to See ....................was a wonderful tour and the guides Daniel, Andre, and Hector were wonderful. Learning about the Mayan culture, how chocolate is made, and the difference between commercial and genuine Tequila was very interesting. I'm not a lover of chocolate nor Tequila but I love history. We had numerous opportunities to shop along the way and shop.

  • Key West
    We decided just to walk around since the island is small. Really enjoyed talking to the locals and the Key Lime Pie at the Key Lime Bakery was heavenly. Several establishments were not open because it was their first day opening since Hurricane Irma.
