Carnival Victory Hurricane Dorian Cruise 2019 (Part 2)

Carnival Victory (soon to be Radiance)

Here is the second part of a 3 part series of my first Video Blog.  This is also my first time on a Carnival cruise ship, the Victory. Carnival is quite different from the many other cruises I’ve done on Royal Caribbean. In this video, we go to Key West and have key lime pie from what I think is the best place in the world to get it from.

Carnival Victory Hurricane Dorian Cruise 2019

I’ve been cruising for about fourteen years.  It has been a part of my travel and an integral part at that. Cruises allow one to visit many places during one trip without having to unpack and repack.  I have usually traveled on Royal Caribbean however, for this weekend cruise, I chose Carnival’s Victory ship.  Honestly, the reason for choosing it was simple- it was the only choice at the time.

Curaçao: A Colorful Retreat from the World

A three-hour flight from Miami, Curaçao is a perfect destination to just escape the struggles of life and go into full “relax-mode”.  Turquoise beaches, rainbow-colored architecture, caves, snorkeling, diving, shopping – this island has plenty to occupy your days.

Reading Cruise Critic, I always find it amusing at the things some people complain about.  This ship is no different as  some people really must hunt for things to be dissatisfied about.  In one post made on 1/15, one says it is the “Our Worst Cruise Ever” because the internet didn’t work properly.  REALLY?  Have you seen that cruise ship being tossed around by 60 foot waves on YouTube people?  THAT is a worst cruise ever.  And if you’re going to “review” a trip, do so in a manner that doesn’t sound like whining rich people problems – ie you had to go get your special luggage tags at guest services yourself.

As for my cruise, it was restful, fun and what I needed.
