Well, after MUCH internet browsing, confusion, review reading, date sorting, and more confusion, we booked a southern Carribean cruise aboard the Victory in Sept.! We got a balcony room on the Lido deck.
Thanks to all those here who have submitted reviews and info. Cruises sure are subjective...
This will be our families first cruise. I think the kids will love it. We're going to fly to San Juan PR
a day early and hang out there prior to sailing. Can't wait!
We booked via phone to a Carnival rep. and he was very helpful. I spoke to a NCL rep earlier today and he was VERY pushy.
