Sail away on a seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard Carnival’s stately Victory ship, which leaves Miami, Florida on Sunday, 16 October 2005. In addition to cruising through the Caribbean Sea’s, you will have the opportunity to visit the ports of San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, NA and St. Thomas, USVI.  Each port has many exciting shore excursions.

Classes will teach you many of the powerful features of Legacy that will really help you advance your genealogical research. You will learn a lot and have a great time doing it.

Prices begin at US $517.50 per person, double occupancy port charges, taxes and Legacy classes included in this price for inside cabin.

  • Inside cabin at the rate of US $517.50 per person.

  • Ocean view cabin at the rate of $667.50 per person.

  • Balcony cabin at the rate of $797.50 per person.

Port charges, taxes and Legacy classes included in all prices.  When the above cabins have sold the rate will be a lot higher if any are available, so take advantage of these low rates while they last!  Last year we sold out of all 100 booked cabins very quickly.  The rates are for the cruise only.  Air and ground transportation to and from the cruise are additional.  Optional pre-cruise or post-cruise hotel packages are available.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I'm single and want to go on the cruise?
A. No problem, just let us know as we have others just like you and we can assign you to others (same gender) to share a room with.  This is a great way to meet new friends.

Q. What is the travel insurance and do I need it?
A. I don't usually get it but I'm a risk taker.  If you are concerned that your health could cause you to miss the cruise then we highly recommend it.  It's $99 each person. Here is a link for more information direct from Carnival.

Q. Tell me about Carnival's Victory cruise ship?
A. You can take a virtual tour of the Victory at Carnivals web site.  Click here

Q. What's the most fun thing to do?
A. That's up to you. You can do as little or as much as you like. On Carnival, they make sure their ships have everyone's kind of fun.  It's what makes their fleet of floating resorts such popular vacation destinations.

Q. What can we do when we reach each port?
A. You name it and it's probably available.  Activities that make the whole trip worth it.
Just click a port to learn about all of the Shore Excursions available from Carnival's site.  San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, NA or St. Thomas, USVI and read about all of the activities that are available.

The FUN Facts

On a "Fun Ship" cruise, one low price includes all your meals, fun activities and superb entertainment in the theater, clubs and lounges. Even the 24-hour stateroom service is free.

What's the best thing about Carnival? EVERYTHING. You unpack only once. You have the option of fine or casual dining. And you never run out of fun things to do.

The cost of your cruise will depend on your choice of accommodations, which can range from an inside stateroom to a Suite with a private balcony overlooking the sea. You'll find that a "Fun Ship" vacation is an unbeatable value.

Once you come aboard a Carnival ship, you'll experience for yourself that some vacations are just more fun than others. We guarantee it!

Every Carnival "Fun Ship" is a complete resort in itself. Travel from one fascinating destination to another. No matter how much time you have, our fun fits your schedule.

Who Would You Find Onboard:
EVERYBODY. On an average "Fun Ship" cruise vacation, we have senior citizens on anniversary cruises; first and second honeymooners from 21 to over 50; families with toddlers, tots and teenagers (who love our supervised Camp Carnival® activities); and single men and women who always seem to find each other.  And, of course, lots of happy couples who are even happier on a Carnival cruise vacation.

Relax on a sun-drenched beach or swim with colorful fish

Virtually everything is included in one low price: fabulous meals, beautiful destinations, exciting entertainment and more!

Carnival is the cruise for you, no matter what type of music you love, your sure to find the one thing you love most: fun!

On this spectacular ship, you'll have more than 100,000 tons of fun! Because this enormous floating resort has four pools and tiers of deck space for fun in the sun and all kinds of nightspots that light up when the sun goes down.

 Every "Fun Ship" has a choice of pools, a spiral water slide, and lots of sunny and shady deck space.

If dancing is your thing, you'll love the high-spirited Ionian Room.

You can always catch "the big game" on the large-screen TVs.

Enjoy spectacular Las Vegas-style shows in the lavish Caribbean Lounge.

Relax with a "best seller" in the serene beauty of the Library, whose decor includes portraits of former presidents

Jazz enthusiasts can enjoy dancing to a live jazz band.

Savor delectable gourmet cuisine in the elegant settings of the Pacific Dining Room and the Mediterranean Restaurant.

 The South Beach Club offers a casual dining option with full breakfast and lunch buffets, salad bar, grille and 24-hour pizzeria.

Spa Carnival offers a fully equipped gymnasium, with everything from free weights and state-of-the-art exercise equipment, to a relaxing massage or steam room.

 Your floating resort has huge pools, wide decks and street-long promenades of lively clubs, lounges and cabarets. We have a shopping mall, kid's programs, glamorous casino and a friendly international staff to fulfill your every expectation.

Carnival staterooms are 50% larger, on average, than those of any other cruise line. Whether, you choose Interior or Ocean view, Suite or Penthouse Suite, you'll get the same personal attention!   

Every Carnival guest is assured of spacious, comfortable accommodations. All staterooms have carpeting, ample drawer and closet space, private facilities (shower, basin and toilet), telephone and color television showing first-run films. Our Super Liners all feature staterooms above ocean level for a more comfortable cruise.

Making the most of the most memorable vacation of your life.

Some guests love rock. Some love country. Some only want to hear the classics. On Carnival you'll have no problem finding the kind of music you love best.

Ken said: "I'm not much for dancing but the last cruise my wife and I were on we danced every night.  The first night my wife could barely get me onto the dance floor.  But by the last night I wouldn't let her skip the dancing.  It was really fun.  I felt like a kid again and wow, the romance was exciting."


Dining Options

Dining Options include:

  • Flexible seating times

  • Increased wait staff per table

  • Fountain Fun Card can be purchased for unlimited soft drinks

  • Sea view Bistros (casual dining)

  • Reservations-only Supper Clubs (Spirit-class ships)

  • Some of our newest ships, notably those in the Spirit class, will feature late night supper clubs, offering reservations-only dining, live entertainment and a romantic ambiance. Starting in the late afternoon on some ships, sushi is served along the Promenade deck.

Total Choice Dining provides the best of what our guests have come to expect - more flexibility, more attentive service and more choices than ever before.

You always have a reserved table in the dining room, but you can also dine casually in our "Sea view Bistro" restaurant, where the food is just as delicious and at no additional cost, but the atmosphere is relaxed. Sea view Bistros offer salads, pasta, and entrees such as chicken, shrimp and grilled-to-order New York strip steak.

For a late-night snack, try our 24-hour Pizzeria, offering a variety of oven-fresh pizzas, as well as fresh Caesar salads and incredible garlic rolls.

In our elegant dining rooms, you'll find menus filled with fabulous dishes, all included in the price of your cruise. Order from our healthful, low-fat SpaCarnival® menu. Expect to be tempted with irresistible dessert masterpieces. One thing not to expect? The bill. Bon appetit!

Did I mention that there was lot's of food?  You had better start dieting now because you will want to enjoy all the meals.  I loved all the fresh fruit they served and ate some with every meal.  When I got home I had severe withdrawals as I couldn't find any Papaya.

Our Legacy Cruise Coordinator

Christy of Travelworks International is handling all of the details.

So, who is Christy?  Well, Ken McGinnis says; "Christy is my sister and you will just love her!  Going on a cruise will be fun but if you are going on a cruise with Christy then get ready for the best vacation of your life.  I'm not exaggerating here.  Christy just has a way of making things so much fun". 

Christy has put together several cruises of large groups and always does such a great job.  She organized our 2004 Legacy cruise and I think everyone just loved her and all she did to make the cruse a huge success.

Her contact information is Christy of Travelworks International at 1-888-505-6997 or send her an e-mail at

Christy says;  "My family has personally gone on the Victory and it was a fantastic ship.  A wonderful experience.  Top notch and first class all the way. You won't be disappointed.".  So, if you have questions don't hesitate to ask her as she will have the answers for you.  Just be warned that if you talk to her you will probably have troubles sleeping that night because of the excitement.

Order Form

Last years September 2004 Cruise was completely sold out. Please make your reservation now in order to be one of the lucky ones to come with us in October of 2005. We have negotiated these special prices for the first 100 cabins and the rates are guaranteed so don't delay reserving your space. This price is guaranteed only until we run out of the reserved cabins and space is quickly filling up. Don't miss out on this great opportunity.

You may elect to pay the entire amount now or hold your cabin and lock in the price by paying only a $300.00 deposit.

Last year we completely sold out.  I felt very bad when a few people who had missed out on the initial 100 reserved cabins had to spend almost double the price to still be able to come with us.  Make your reservation now for just $300.00 so you don't miss out.

I don't know if you have gone on a cruise before but they can be lots of fun. All the food and fun one person can take in. You may elect to pay the entire amount now or hold your cabin and lock in the price by paying only a $300.00 deposit.

You can download the cruise application form at this link.  (after printing the form just click your browser's back button to return to this page).

In order to book your cruise we need for you to print this authorization form (click here for order form) and simply fill it out and fax it to Travelworks International Attn: Christy at 1-888-505-6997.
