First Time Cruiser - waiting for the next trip!

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: San Juan
We absolutely LOVED our trip. The staff on the ship were OUTSTANDING! Anything we wanted, they made sure we had. We were never bored and it never felt like we were on a ship with 3,000 other people. We are anxiously waiting to book our next trip, now that we know how to do it. We would certainly spend more time in the ports, finding just the right beach to just simply relax on. Excursions will be done once in port, they are cheaper and you get the same trip.

Our Harley excursion was cancelled and it almost ruined the end of our trip, but we made the best of it. We are looking into booking a Harley cruise and taking our bike. That could be an amazing time, such beautiful scenery to enjoy on the bike, for sure!

The Victory ship was beautiful! They kept it clean and it just never felt like we were on a "ship". Just cannot say enough about the staff on the ship, they work so hard to make your stay with them the best it can be. We never had a bad experience - and it was More GREAT that the adult only area on the rear of the ship was exactly that, ADULTS ONLY! They enforced the rules and it was wonderful!

Wunnerful rememories were had! hahaha, that was our saying the whole time! After a few cocktails, the words just came out funny like that. Only advice is, keep close tabs on your alcohol bill, it does add up very fast!

Looking forward to many more cruises! Less

Cabin review: 1A1342 Interior Upper/Lower

Our cabin was AWESOME! We had adjoining rooms and thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were very spacious and plenty of room. We will be upgrading the next trip, BALCONY - here we come!!!

Port and Shore Excursions

Locals were a bit too pushy with trying to get you a taxi or excursion, but we dealt with it. Our Pirate/snorkeling trip was the BOMB!!! Our friends were remarried on the boat - on their 20th wedding anniversary, PIRATE style!

Our return to San Juan turned out great. We got a deal at the port, put all our bags in the taxi bus and took an all day tour of the island. For $25 a person, we could not beat it. It ended with him taking us to the airport and was well worth every penny!
