OK here is my review:

Day 1 – we had a direct flight from Toronto to Miami on American Airlines.
We got to the cruise terminal, and because we had a baby in a stroller we were able to
take the priority line and were at the check in counter in less than 10 minutes.

We got aboard and went to our room – a Cat 6E on Spa Deck. We had the mandatory lifeboat drill at 4:00 and after that we set sail.


Day 2 – Half moon Cay Bahamas – this is a private Island that Holland America purchased several years ago. You have to tender in. It has a very nice beach, some small shops and a very large BBQ pavilion where lunch was served, we went to the beach, I did some snorkeling and then we had lunch. After lunch we returned to the dock and took the tender back to the ship.

Day 3 – Fun Day at Sea and Formal night.

Day 4 – St Thomas USVI, we had to clear US customs on arrival. I have been to this Island before so I knew what to expect. We took a self directed tour of the Island for 25.00 / person (Myself, my wife, and my mother – the baby was free). After the tour the taxi driver dropped us off downtown. We did some shopping and walked back to the ship. My mother went back to the ship with the baby and my wife and I went to Coki Beach to do some snorkeling.

Day 5 – San Juan – This was a very nice stop. We got to do some shopping and walked around the old city. We had our past guest reception that evening. My wife didn’t want to dance so I took my 8 month old daughter on stage and ¼ of the crowd applauded.

Day 6 – Grand Turk – This stop was a bit of a disappointment. It was a nice pier with a beach very close to the ship (just outside security), but aside from the shops at the pier this isn’t very much on the Island. The “Capital City” is actually and abandoned American Military Base that has been converted into government offices. We took a taxi downtown, but there wasn’t much to see. We returned to the pier. I did some duty free shopping at the pier. This was our second formal night.

Day 7 – Fun Day at sea. We sailed through a line of thunderstorms in the morning. We all woke up to sunny skies at 9:00 am. It was a great day.

Day 8 – return to Miami. Debarkation was much simpler than other cruises I have been on. My mother needed a wheel chair as she can’t stand in lines for very long. We waited on Promenade deck at 9:30 when the people showed up with the wheel chairs. This made debarkation a lot easier – again we were able to jump the line, we got a porter to pick up our bags and we went through customs and were delivered straight to the bus to the airport. Then it was short bus ride to the airport and a direct flight home.


I have now sailed the Triumph and the Victory - they are both identical sister ships, the only difference is in the decorations. I have enjoyed both cruises!
