Background information - First time cruisers. There were 5 of us. Hotel information (if any) - Holiday Inn, Port of Miami. Bar doesn't stay open very late and doesn't open early. So, if you are looking for bloody Mary's or mimosas for breakfast you need to go across the street to Bayside. Ship information - Carnival Victory Activities - Plenty to do on board. While at Bayside, we went to the Thriller! Speedboat tour. It was great but you can get wet especially if you sit in the very back of the boat. Service - Excellent Port & shore excursions - Half Moon Cay was WONDERFUL. Nassau was okay. Travel to embarkation port - Flew in a few days before. Cabin - 6440 Dining - Okay, was expecting a lot more from the dining room. Food wasn't anything spectacular. Children's clubs - Not used as we did not have children with us. However, the teen club looked like it was packed last night. Entertainment - Band in casino was great! Played 80's the last night we were there. Disembarkation - Customs took forever! Summary - Great trip, would definitely do it again.

Cabin Review

Cabin
Great view from balcony! Can be a little noisy at night as I think the Punchliner Comedy Club was below us? Not sure.
