Carnival Victory, which operates year-round seven-day cruises from San Juan, has earned “Best Value” and “Best Shore Excursions” honors in the Cruise Critic’s first-ever Cruisers Choice Awards.
Cruise Critic is an online consumer cruise Web site that attracts nearly two million monthly visitors and provides a host of information, including ship reviews and cruise industry news. The awards were based on votes by Cruise Critic members who were asked to rank cruise lines in 10 different categories.
The 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory was recognized in the large ship category for providing superior value, as well as for offering the top shore excursion choices during its port-intensive southern Caribbean cruise schedule. Six tropical ports are featured on its popular weeklong program, including St. Thomas/St. John, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and St. Maarten.
