So I see threads here and there that mention this ship, but no real discussion about her. As I try and figure out what I want for my November 11 cruise, I've recently found out that I might have access to buddy passes on Jetblue, which opens up cruising out of San Juan as an affordable option. The itinerary on the Victory looks interesting to me as its got almost all new destinations to me but still gives me St Thomas which I love. And San Juan as a start/end would just be great. I have friends in the area so I can fly in the day before and spend some time in the area.
Basically I'm just looking at getting some good thoughts on the ship and its ports of call. I have 2 weeks off as of right now from the end of Oct to the start of Nov to be able to take a 7 or 8 day cruise.
Also the $499 OV or even $399 interior makes it insanely attractive since I would have access to affordable airfare.
At 399, I'm even considering going inside again ... but that would depend on who I am travelling with. Either is affordable.

She was my very first ship in 2002. I really like the ship. John Heald was the cruise director so that made it even better. I am actually booking this cruise for 9-23-12 because of all the stops and only 1 sea day. I am sure you will love it. I haven't been to St. Kitts, St. Lucia or Barbados so i am really looking forward to it!
your friend who works for Jet Blue and might give you access to buddy passes should also advise you that San Juan is one of the worse places to fly space available stand by for cruises ..it might take you days to get in/out but if you have friends that live in San Juan that will help on your return..plan on flying in wed/thurs before the cruise to be safe
it's an intensive port itinerary, so if an inside works for you go for it because you won't be spending alot of time on the ship
