Hi LandLocked~
Hubby & I are going along with another couple we know. We are all in our late 30's. I also have been on other cruises but my first time on Victory. Been to the Eastern Caribbean many times and loved it each & every time! So much that my hubby & I got married on St. Thomas in April 2002 on the beach. Let's see if we can get this roll call going and make a list of who else is going with us!

Ran tasked us with "I will be on the Victory May 29th so make sure to write a review so i now what to expect when i go 2 weeks later:"

Homework? ... I'm too old for homework.

Perhaps I could leave a half eaten slice of pizza in a pre-determined location ... and if it's still there when you sail you will know the housekeeping is lacking.


No docs yet TC ... just booked this past weekend.

I loved the Victory last year, I am going back this year on March 13, 05. I am going to the western Caribbean this time, eastern was not to bad, St. Thomas was so so. Puerto Rico not bad better than I expected, St. Maarten was beautiful. Have fun everyone

I don't like the fog in the picture above. It is always suppose to be sunny.

I see quite a few of the sites that discus shopping in San Juan mention 'santos'. Has anyone ever bought any there? Plan on buying any? Have advice?

Like this one http://www.experience-puertorico.com...?secc=shopping

As quiet as this topic is I'm betting the ship will be empty.

I can see it now, no lines for the buffet, front seat for the showgirls. Woo hoo!

Upgrade to super-duper deluxe category, with balcony and private beach

Dinner with the Captain ... every night.

2-minute debarkation.

Pull up and park right next to the ship.



I can't wait.

Where will you be sitting?

I imagine I'll be putting my beach towel in the left main floor section, 3rd or 4th row, on the seat behind the 4th table over from the left-center aisle.

That works for theater seats, too, doesn't it? Not just deck lounge chairs? ; )

I don't believe they have one. Here is a link to a nice overview of what the Victory offers:

Bee,

This ship is layed out just like the Conquest. On the Conquest, they did have one reservation specialty restaurant, however we did not eat there. Not sure about victory though.

Documents usually come in during the last 30 days. So really soon now we can start stalking the postman. It isn't unusual for them to even show up the week of. We are still waiting too.

Landlocked, Thanks for the weather updates. I wondered what the temps were. Were almost there!
