We will be sailing on Victory for our first cruise in December and want to see if anyone else will be going with us. We are flying into Ft. Lauderdale (cheap airfare) and will probably take a limo to Miami the next morning as we are staying at a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale. Our daughters are just turned 18 and just turned 15. Any advice is appreciated!
I would be at the dock if I were you early at about 9:30 or 10:00 soon as you can get on the ship.This will free you from the huge.I mean huge line ups. For hrs. long.We arrived at /11:00ft.L. and didn't get our ride till about 1:00.THen we got in line and didn't get on the ship till 3:15.The life jacket drill took place. We missed the Party on the Lido deck as you pull away at 4:00.We wasted too much time going and looking around. Food is also served at this party. Don't miss it!You were smart in going a day early. We will do this next summer. This gives you another full day on the ship missing the huge line ups.Lots for your teens to do. They have all kinds of activities. You will hardly see them as they will be fine. Where can they go except to explore they whole ship.Lots of adults around.
They will love the lido deck. That is were all the informal food is being served all day,all night till the wee hrs. Pizza is served 24 hrs.
Lido is also where the pools are.Have a great time. I had the best time ever. I have learned for the next.
hephastus - we'll try to make sure that we don't drink all the liquor/beer on board before you sail. Have a great time. We're planning on posting a review as soon as we get back so if there's anything in particular that you would like to know, ask before we leave and I'll make sure to try and find the answer for you while we are on our cruise.
Yes we're excited. We got our documents - danced like crazy - and the suitcases are on the bed in the guest room. They are filling up fast and I figure that since Carnival sent 12 luggage tags, we can take 12 bags. DH disagrees. Imagine that!
