Family w/older children
Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Valor | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2014
I took this cruise Feb. 2014 with my husband and two 16 yr. old daughters and another family of four. It was an excellent vacation, the rooms were clean, spacious and the decor was bright and lively. Because we were on different islands daily we did not go to many shows except the comedy shows. They were great, the comedian Happy Cole was unbelievably funny. Every night after having a great day on the islands we would all meet in the hot tub and have a drink before getting ready for dinner. We met a lot of great people on the boat and we would exchange our days events. The food was good, I would not say excellent but for the inexpensive price that we paid for this cruise we thought it was a great deal. We went horse back riding in St. Kitts with Trinity stables, the horses were a little mangey and there was not much of a rainforest but we enjoyed the views of the ocean and the guide was very nice. My daughters absolutely loved it, they said it was their best day. We also rented a private sail boat on St. Lucia with Mystic Man. We paid $75.00 per person because we had a party of 8 we were able to have the sailboat to ourselves with the captain and his mate. We sailed to the Pitons and they served us a wonderful lunch of either baked fish or chicken and all the beer and cocktails you wanted. After lunch we then went to an area that we could snorkle before we headed back. It was an amazing experience. Our family vacations yearly, we have done several disney trips, beach trips, and the Grand canyon and we all agreed that this was our best vacation ever. I highly recommend this cruise, you will have a grreat experience and lasting memories with your family.
