Trip Report A Fun Victory Escape

Jump to last reply

While not the cruise line for everyone, for FUN and AFFORDABILITY it is hard to beat Carnival Cruise Lines. For us, living in South Florida cruising is now a part of our blood and at the right time of the year it is always a bargain.

In December of 2013, which now seems like a long time ago, along with our cruising comrades we take a 5 day escape on the Carnival Victory. Returning to Grand Turk is always nice for us. With easy beach access, margaritas, cracked conch, cold beers and sometimes sand diving beach volleyball, this is always a FUN port of call.

A stop at Carnival's private island, 2980 miles from Seattle, 1184 miles from New York and only 183 miles from Ft. Lauderale is also a nice part of our escape. After relaxing beach time, basketball and a FUN game of volleyball, we think this is one of the best cruise line private island that we have ever visited. I wish we could stay here, forever.

Since we are all over 18 and some of us are out on parole, multiple stop at Carnival's onboard Punchliner Comedy Club is always apart of our cruising. So is a visit to the discotheque and the karaoke lounge where participation always depends on the level of our adult beverage consumption.

Although our last stop in Nassau comes unfortunately with travel warnings because of recent crimes against tourist, this is my birthplace so we are always comfortable making our normal “Kalik Run” then hopping on a Jitney for Cable Beach or Paradise Island.
