mara93 Posted March 29, 2009 #1 Share Posted March 29, 2009 I know there are a couple of Victory reviews already out there but I thought some might appreciate the info since we opted to do different excursions than the ones already reviewed. We flew into San Juan on Thurs. 03/05 since we were getting married that weekend at the Hotel El Convento in Old San Juan. Hotel is beautiful, service was excellent! Our guests stayed at Da House Hotel & we heard mixed reviews. No hot water for showers, music was always full blast. They did know the hotel was next to a club but didn't expect it to be that loud. Our Best Man ended up at the club every night because he couldn't sleep due to the noise. They did love the price & proximity to everything in OSJ. 03/08- Embarkation Embarkation was a breeze. From the time we got to the pier to the time we were on the boat was about 10 minutes tops. We got there a little after 3pm & there were absolutely no lines. We had a Balcony cabin on the Veranda Deck, Cabin 8384. I have to say I was surprised how big the cabins were, I wasn't expecting them to be so spacious. It was starboard & perfect, we had beautiful views at every island we stopped at. Well, except Barbados. The port is in an industrial area & just is not pretty. Our lovely ship in SJ We had dinner in the Pacific Dining Room that evening with some wonderful folks. We had the Shrimp Cocktail, Cured Salmon, Red Snapper & Steak. I have pictures if anyone would like to see them. The food was delicious! We have absolutely no complaints about the dining room. Well, maybe one. We did indulge in the Chocolate Melting Cake after hearing so much about it and although it was delicious, it went right through us. First and last time we had it. The infamous Cake We went to our muster drill. Not a big deal, in & out in about 15-20 minutes. Got lucky & were put right by an exit & were able to get out as soon as it ended. Went to the sail away party for a little bit, hit up the 24hr pizza, explored the ship a bit & went to bed since I was a bit dizzy.
