Great vacation!

This was our first cruise and we were going with friends. We got cabins next to each other and had the most fantastic time.  We went paddle boarding/snorkeling in Cozumel, just explored Belize on our own, did the Big French Key Island in Mahogany Bay (snorkeling in the reef!) and the Mayan ruins in Cost Maya. ALL the excursion guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.  The ship crew was amazing.

Will not book again

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2015

I am an experienced cruiser and this cruise was far below par.  I paid more for this cruise than others in the past as well. The boat rocked the entire time.  It made constant creaking noises.  At breakfast there were other couples who made the same comments about the boat.  It was constantly hot on every floor. The people working on the boat were overworked.  It seemed as though they have cut back on the amount of workers.  There were nights that it would take us 30 minutes to get our appetizer.  It caused us to miss the show every night.   It should not take more than an hour and half to get prepared  food.  Ir was cold most of the time as well.  I never had a piping hot meal from the dinning room.  I am very disappointed with Carnival.  I will not ever cruise with them again.

The customer service was terrible. I could never get anyone on the phone and the lines at the guest services were always packed. 

The food was terrible.  The only good thing we had was the chocolate melting cake.

I did not even meet the person who cleaned our room until 3 days after we were on the cruise. 

The prices for drinks are outrageous. 

The room was always hot.  I called they said they would fix it but never did

Outside the room smelled like mildew.  I was in stateroom 8219

The boat needs to be redone.

Cruise experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2015

Wonderful' unforgettable experience. Very very nice staff. Very fun ship with plenty of activities to do for any type of person. Loved how there were group movie showing by the pool on the big screen. Loved how the staff members mainly had workers from different countries through out the world.

Great time, great places. and great staff. A very enjoyable vacation for a first time cruiser. We plan to go again very soon. The only down fall was the trip being over, it went so fast.

western carb

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2015

my wife and I took my 17yr son on his first cruise, to the western carb. we chose carnival, because of the time frame we had to work with and I must say we had a blast. cozmel was fun we chose the cataram and snorkeling and it was fun, and in belize we were disappointed, not only with the shore excursion we chose but with city itself. the tour guides we had were great but the city was not what I expected, now roaltan was awesome, simply fun and pretty, the zipline was great and the beach was to die for.

Surprisingly downfall

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jun 27, 2015

let me first start out in saying the hotel staff was wonderful. I greatly enjoyed enter acting with staff members who remembered my name and always had a happy smile on their face when you passed by. Now on to the bad part, the shows on the Carinval Valore were absolutely horrible. If that's how all shows are I don't think I will be going on another cruise. None of those shows were good except for maybe one. The food was pretty good overall. The rooms were kept nice and clean. But again Valore failed us again with the shows at night and only 1/4 comedians were actually good. They need to work on entertainment for sure. I also found out that I paid way to much for this cruise. I spent more then anybody else on board!!! Why is that? I thought cheap cruises was suppose to help me get a good deal not a bad deal. So overall I was highly disappointed in this cruise ship and cheap cruises.com

Valor needs a makeover

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jun 20, 2015

Needs bigger coffee cups and to set up coffee at the 1 spot (besides the casino) for smokers to go and relax. So cold in the shows and the restaurants. Some of the shows are so late, need to be a little earlier, not everyone stays up till 1am. Kids and young adults still need to be supervised, need a few adults only cruises

Best Anniverary Cruise Ever

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Jun 13, 2015

Lets point out from the moment we stepped on the Valor , the Valor Crew was Excellent always smiling, always saying Hello, can I help you.

The Food was to die for each night in the Washington Room.  The Lido Deck meals great meals , but I would like to have a donut , never a donut. Lots of chocolate lots of chocolate. Ship is very clean and shinny.  Rooms are clean and very welcoming and warm,  love the head of house keeping for our area.

Cozumel, was great, had a dock ,we walk up to village and hired a taxi service to take us to a beach. 30.00 each plus eats

Belize, tender service, the first time I went there we used a dock, I don't know why you have to use tenders now. We were in a party of 12 and some of  us stayed  ship because water was rough. The group that went on shore did not like how the crew handle the boats and getting on and off the ship.  Once on shore people were fighting for your business and it was not clean.  They said Belize was a waste our time that we could put on another island.

Mahogany Bay   Dock service  beautiful setting, great time there. wonderful beach, lots of  bars, eats,  stores  , the flowers so beautiful  The  water is blue green and feels so good.  The  people are loving and caring and very helpful and they will make sure you will have a great time.  If you could bypass Belize you could spend more time here.

Costa Maya, Dock Service.  small village shopping and bar and eatery , we booked a private resort for the day. started at 7:00 am   this included beach, food, and of course alcohol  , all you want. for 5 hours    Oh, this also included the taxi service too.   Beautiful Love

You may wish to try anytime dining. I like to watch the sunset, and it would allow me to do that. Also take the time to explore the ship and all it has to offer.

The Serenity Deck was nice because nobody under 21 could go on this deck. It was especially laying in the hammocks. The only negative thing was that every time we wanted to go in the hot tub, they were crowded, so we never were able to get in the hot tubs.
