Victory Review

We flew into Ft. Lauderdale Airport on Saturday afternoon, Larry’s Limo of Miami was hired to pick us up and bring us to our hotel in Miami. Jason our driver was a Very pleasant young man, who was there when we landed, came right over picked us up and brought us to our hotel, and gave us great information on the Miami area, where to see , and where to stay out of.

Sunday noon we took a van to the ship pier, and stopped off at the Victory terminal, the luggage handlers took our bags and a tip and we were off to check in.

Once inside of the terminal we showed our passports and cruise voucher and we were sent to the VIP area for some reason, still not sure why , but from the time we walked in till we had our sign and sail cards and were in out suite it was less than 15 minutes. Great job with check in and I heard this from many others. we were on the Empress deck cabin 7-317 and it was great , our cabin server was awesome lots of towel animals for our daughter, never really saw him but things were always done. Could have not asked of asked for more, We enjoyed lunch on the lido deck and spent the afternoon there in the sunshine till we set sail at 4:30 right on time. We had the early dinner reservation at 5; 45 PM, in the Atlantic dining room upper side, and had a lovely waiter named Jiri. He did a great job and made out kids feel as important as the adults did, the only thing we asked was for him to slow down a little with our dinner as we felt a little rushed, but he explained with Kids our little one is 9 the kids usually want out fast, but things worked out fine, ALL our meals were awesome, steak ,lobster, shrimp. Pasta, prime rib, all cooked to the way we ordered them, and very tasty. Deserts were out of this world also, if there was to be a down side, you might get one cool bake potato or veggie not cold , cool during the week, but with as many meals as they have to serve in a short period of time they do a great job, then it is off to Lounge to sing karaoke with BOSTON ROB, who was the best , he had the place rocking , not a event to be missed,

Monday: Day at sea time to learn your way around the ship If there was one thing they can do to improve is to give you a better map that show’s where things are located and on what floor, big help first few days to most, the usual people throwing towels out on chairs early and showing up latter but enough chairs to go around. Lots of fun activates for all ages to do during the day and you could win a solid gold Plastic ship on a stick…. The activities group of Peaches, Boston Rob, little chader, and Big sexy do a great job keeping things going.

Tuesday Day at sea then San Juan at night, we walked around old san Juan and enjoyed the town stopped at the Hard Rock for the shirts which is a must with our family. We did the late night show and the TV trivia game, awesome

Wednesday ST. Martin, got in a hour early had a great day doing the 4x4 tour and the orients beach clothing optional beach, lovely island.

Thursday St… Thomas this was our favorite island, We did the 4x4 tour again then took the ride to the top of Megan’s bay with a awesome site, left lots of time for shopping and walking around before returning to the ship in time for Dinner and sail away


Friday & Saturday great days at sea fun fuelled if you wish or lazy and relaxed if that is what you want, saw a woman win a BMW on a machine in the casino.


Sunday Morning Check out was a little bit of a mess, early departures as we were with a flight at noon our of Ft. Lauderdale meet in a special room, they also had those with a late flight here as they were going on a tour for the day, might have been better to use two rooms one for early flights and one for tours, we were off the ship at 9 am and once again Larry’s Limo of Miami was right there to take us to Ft. Lauderdale in plenty of time for our noon flight.

Over all we loved the cruise and would highly recommend it to others. All of the ships crew could have not of been more friendly, service was great, and weather was perfect. Any questions feel free to ask.



Brian

We've used Larry's Limo many times and have always been pleased with their service.

Great time.....fantastic food....Not so Newly wed game was fun too!
The Purser area needs improvement and I wish the internet could have been either free or cheaper.
Carnival for a first cruise was a real thrill.
I wonder if we ever saw you Brian......we could have shared your limo.....

Kevin from Maryland.

See you next time......Princess?

I am glad you had a great time...but a little sad that Boston Rob will probably be gone by the time we sail on the Victory in September.
