Just got off Victory!

Recommended Posts

DH and I just got back from a very short 3 day cruise to the Bahamas on Victory. I thought I would share a quick few thoughts.  We had FTTF and were in our cabin, #7416, by 11am. It had one of those "bowling alley" balconies. The weather was perfect, food was good and the service fabulous.  We were randomly selected for a complimentary Galley tour and Tasting. It was very interesting. We went to several of the Comedy shows. This is the second cruise we have seen the Comedian Manny Oliveira. He is completely inappropriate and we LOVE his shows! We spent some time in the casino and I had fun. I didn't hit any jackpots but I came home with some of the my gambling funds. This was the first time we had the Cheers package and I found it convenient. I think we came close to breaking even (each of us had 5-7 drinks a day, many were $10) But I probably won't buy it again. I'm too old to drinking that much! 😁 Next cruise we'll buy liquor for our cabin from the fun shop, carry on soda and wine. The only thing that really bothered me was the public restrooms. It didn't matter which one I used, there was usually only one or two sinks working. Makes it hard for passengers to wash their hands to prevent illness.

Debarkation was smooth. If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them!

I have heard that the shorter cruises are often a bit rowdier. Was that your experience?

I just did a 3 day cruise on Liberty this past weekend and there was nothing rowdy about this cruise. I have done several cruises this year (3 days up to 8 days) and by far the rowdiest cruise we were on was a 7 day cruise on Breeze. I didn’t see any behavior I would consider inappropriate, but there was definitely a lot of people having fun on that cruise.

I didn't think it was rowdy. It seems to me that the more rowdy cruises have been during spring break. Now that we're a bit older we don't cruise at that time of year anymore.  I thought it was a very fun crowd on board.

  I will be sailing on Victory 4 weeks from today. How was the food? Do you happen to have copies of the funtimes? I was curious how extensive the nightlife was. Do you know if the roulette table had the dreaded extra "fun space"(can't remember exactly what it was called.) Also wondering what the table minimums were for blackjack and craps.

 

Thanks!

I did not play roulette, blackjack or craps so I have no idea about those minimums. I only play slots. I did not keep any of the fun times. I thought the food was really good. We tend to stay away from the buffet but we ate Guys Burgers twice for lunch and that was good. I thought the Main Dining Room food was very good, and I'm really picky. The night life was hopping. I went to the Comedy shows every night, which for me were fantastic. Right next to the lounge where the comedy was there was a night club that was always packed. There was always some type of music going at the Atrium Bar. My husband and I used to try to see all the different entertainment, but not anymore. It was only 3 nights and we're older so we kept it simple and went to bed by 11 pm.
